Modern Fable

A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner.  Father  being  very  old  and  weak,  while  eating, dropped  food  on  his  shirt  and  trousers.  Others  diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm. After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly.  When  they  came  out,  the  entire  restaurant  was watching  them  in  dead  silence,  not  able  to  grasp  how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that. The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father. At that time, an old man amongst the diners called out to the son  and  asked  him,  ‘Don’t  you  think  you  have  left something behind?’. The son replied, ‘No sir, I haven’t’. The old man retorted, ‘Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son, every daughter and hope for every father/mother’. The restaurant went silent.
