There was a boy in a village , who was
sent by his parents to a boarding school in a town. Before being sent away this
boy was the brightest student in his class. He was at the top in every competition.
He was a champion.
But the boy changed after leaving home and attending the boarding school. His
grades started dropping. He hated being in a group. He was lonely all the time.
And there were especially dark times when he felt like committing suicide. All
of this because he felt worthless and that no one loved him.
His parents started worrying about the boy. But even they did not know what was
wrong with him. So his dad decided to travel to the boarding school and talk
They sat on the bank of the lake near the school. The father started asking him
casual questions about his classes, teachers and sports.
After some time his dad said, 'Do you know son, why I am here today?"
The boy answered back, "to check my grades?"
"No, no" his dad replied, "I am here to tell you that you are the most important
person for me. I want to see you happy. I don't care about grades. I care about
you. I care about your happiness. YOU ARE MY LIFE."
These words caused the boy's eyes to fill with tears. He hugged his dad. They
didn't say anything to each other for a long time.
Now the boy had everything he wanted. He knew there was someone on this earth
who cared for him deeply. He meant the world to someone. And today this young
man is in college at the top of his class and no one has ever seen him sad!
Thanks a lot dad. YOU ARE MY LIFE.
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which
have the potential to turn a life around."
