>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 gals. Near the
>window, seated a 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
>      " See dad, the scenery of green trees moving away is very beautiful"
> This behavior from a thirty 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 Anup whispered to
>his wife.
>Suddenly it started raining... Rain drops fell on the travelers through
>the opened window. The Thirty year old son , filled with  joy " see dad,
>how beautiful the rain is..."
>Anup's wife got irritated with the rain drops spoiling her new suit.
>Anup ," cant you see its raining, you old man, if ur 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 hospital, my son got discharged today morning , he was a
>blind by birth,last week only he got his vision,  these rain and nature
>are new to his eyes.. Please forgive us for the inconvenience caused..."
>The things we see may be right from our perspective until we know the
>truth. Bt when we know the truth our reaction to that will hurt even us.
>So try to understand the problem better before taking a harsh action.
