An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his
45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their
window. The Father asked his Son, "What is this?" The Son replied "It
is a crow". After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd
time, "What is this?" The Son said "Father, I have just now told you
"It's a crow". After a little while, the old Father again asked his
Son the 3rd time, What is this?" At this time some ex- pression of
irritation was felt in the Son's tone when he said to his Father with
a rebuff. "It's a crow, a crow" A little after, the Father again asked
his Son the 4th time, "What is this?" This time the Son shouted at his
Father, "Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again,
although I have told you so many times 'IT IS A CROW'. Are you not
able to understand this?" A little later the Father went to his room
and came back with an old tattered diary, which he had maintained
since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read
that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in
the diary :- "Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on
the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window My Son asked me 23
times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a
Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question
again and again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather
felt affection for my innocent child". While the little child asked
him 23 times "What is this", the Father had felt no irritation in
replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the Father
asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated
and annoyed
