Heart touching story by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam:
“When I was a kid, my Mom cooked food for us.
One night in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day’s work..
Mom placed a plate of subzi and extremely burnt roti in front of my Dad. I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt roti.
But.. Dad just ate his roti and asked me.. how was my day was at school.
I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom apologising to Dad for the burnt roti.
And I’ll never forget what he said: “Honey, I love burnt roti.”
Later that night, I went to Daddy that night & I asked him if he really liked his roti burnt.
He wrapped me in his arms & said:
“Your mom put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired..
A burnt roti never hurts
anyone but harsh words do!”
“You know beta – life is full of imperfect things..
& imperfect people..
I’M NOT THE BEST & AM HARDLY GOOD AT ANYTHING!
I forget birthdays & anniversaries just like
What I’ve learnt over the years is :
-Accept Each Others Faults & Choose To Celebrate Relationships
– Life Is Too Short To Wake Up With Regrets!
-Love the people who treat you right & have
compassion for the ones who don’t.!!
ENJOY LIFE NOW !!
Appreciate the love you got from your loved ones becos ….
It has an expiry date !!
