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.
