As soon as Principal Mr. Verma came out of the house, his father called from behind - Son, my eye drops are over, it has been three days, if you are going to the office, then bring it. Then Mr. Verma got angry and said - Papa, how many times has it been said that while leaving, do not interrupt from behind, it is a bad omen.
Then he said - son, you, being such a big officer of the education department, still believe in omen and bad omen? I will not speak now. Mr. Verma left without saying anything.
In no time, he went to a huge meeting room and sat on the stage and after greeting the officers and employees present there, he said - Friends, this two-day meeting is being held as per the orders of the government, in which we have to take training of the School Chalo campaign. Then his eyes were late in the meeting
While entering, a teacher fell on Mr. Mohan Sharma, then shouted - Master Mr. Mohan Sharma, is this any time to come to the meeting? Why not deduct your one day's salary?
Tomorrow, bring an explanation of why you came late today.
Master Mr. Mohan Sharma without saying anything. He stood with his head bowed, when he straightened his head, people saw that there were tears in his eyes.
At the end of the meeting, Principal Mr. Verma called his elder babu and ordered him to type an order to deduct one day's salary. Then elder babu said - Sir, if you order to stop his salary for one month, even if you order him to stop, he will not object.
This job is their weakness as well as a compulsion.
Principal Mr. Verma said – Whatever be the case, officers often work with the mind, which the officer takes work from the heart. That officer often fails. Tomorrow get his one day's salary deducted by typing the order.
Then the elder babu said - Sir, please wait for a day or two. Then Principal Verma said - Look elder babu, a pending work is like a corpse, the longer you wait, the more it will rot.
After the meeting, Mr. Verma returned to his house. Arrived, his father was sitting gazing at the door. His eyes were asking questions as to why he didn't bring eye drops.
As soon as he entered the house, Mr. Verma called out to his wife, on coming to her, giving a pen drive, he said – take a new film of your request.
She said - When did I request? Let's bring it well, but your father has been asking for eye drops for three days, he would have brought it too.
Mr. Verma said - come on, now don't spoil the mood. They keep on requesting frivolous. Let's watch the film.
The next day, Mr. Verma was preparing to go to the meeting when elder babu came and ordered Master Mr. Mohan Sharma to deduct one day's salary.
placed in front for signature. After reading that order, Mr. Verma signed it and kept it with him.
Elder babu said - Sir ji, you are also going to the meeting now, I have to follow the same, sir ji, there is a request against your pride, if you think it is appropriate, then on the way is the house of master Mr. Mohan Sharma, his father Too sick to just walk for a minute looking at them?
Mr. Verma gave his approval after thinking for a long time, then what was it, both of them reached Mr. Sharma's house in no time.
Master Mr. Mohan Sharma outside his house. He was bathing his ailing handicapped father.
Seeing his officer in front, Mr. Sharma was shocked and said with folded hands - Sir, you have come to my house, my good fortune, sir, this is my father, he has brought me up by working as a laborer, he has devoted his whole life to my upbringing. While doing young, he himself became old. Just like your father.
Today they are sick, so it is my duty to serve them. Sir, now you tell me everything in the world can be found after losing, but if you have lost your father then it is difficult to get them even in dreams. You are deducting my one day's salary. I don't feel any pain even if one month's salary is cut, if I feel hungry, I will beg, but I cannot reduce my father's service.
Hearing this, Mr. Verma tore off the order to cut the salary, and put his hand on the shoulder of Master Mr. Mohan Sharma and said – Mr. Sharma, I salute you in front of your paternal devotion.
Then Mr. Verma sat for a while in the meeting and got up and went straight to his house from there. There he looked for his father here and there but could not find him.
Then someone's mobile call came to them - Sir, your father got hit by a car and ran away, come soon. He is counting his last breath.
Mr. Verma ran away immediately.
He saw his father lying in a critical condition on the bed of the general ward of the hospital. Mr. Verma hugged him and wept, and said - Father, are you in this condition?
He said in a faltering language – son, when your mother died, you were very young. People said a lot that get married again. But I spent my life in making you human, but of course there was something missing in my upbringing, I had to come alone to the hospital for the treatment of my eye. Now my last time has come, I bless you to be happy.
Then Mr. Verma said with folded hands - Father, I do not know how to apologize, but I know this much. You have to forgive. Please forgive me. But the one who had to forgive had left the world.
Mr. Verma wept and wept. Then there Master Mr. Mohan Sharma came and wiped their tears with a handkerchief and said – Sir, after losing our helpless elders, we cry remembering their favors. If you keep remembering his favors in his lifetime, then you will never have to cry or repent later.
