A beautiful story

The train has started moving. It is packed with people of all ages, mostly with the working men and women and young college guys and girls. Near the window, was seated an old man with his 30-year old son. As the train moves by, the son is overwhelmed with joy as he was thrilled with the scenery outside..

" See dad, the scenery of green trees moving away is very beautiful"

This behavior from a 30-year old son made the other people feel strange about him. Every one started murmuring something or other about this son.

"This guy seems to be a crack.."

Newly married Anoop whispered to his wife. Suddenly it started raining.Rain drops fell on the travelers through the opened window. The 30- year old son, filled with joy;

"See dad, how beautiful the rain is .."

Anoop's wife got irritated with the rain drops spoiling her new suit. Anoop said,

"Can't you see it's raining, you old man, if your son is not feeling well, get him soon to a mental asylum and don't disturb public henceforth"

The old man hesitated first and then in a low tone replied;

" We are on the way back from the hospital, my son got discharged today morning , he was a blind by birth and last week only he got his vision, this rain and nature are all
new to his eyes. Please forgive us for the inconvenience caused..."
