Heart Touching Story

A man came home from work
late, tired and irritated, to
find his
5-year old son waiting for
him at the door.

SON:”Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
DAD:”Yeah sure, what is it?”
replied the man.
SON:”Daddy, how much do
you make an hour?”
DAD:”That’s none of your business. Why do you ask
such a thing?”
the man said angrily.
SON:”I just want to know.
Please tell me, how much do
you make an hour?” DAD:”If you must know, I
make Rs.100 an hour.”
SON:”Oh,” the little boy
replied, with his head down.
SON:”Daddy, may I please
borrow Rs.50?” The father was furious, “If
the only reason you asked
that is so you can borrow
some money to buy a silly toy
or some other nonsense, then
you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed.
Think about why you are
being so selfish. I work hard
everyday for such this
childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and
started to get even angrier
about the little boy’s
questions. How dare he ask
such questions only to get some money?
After about an hour or so, the
man had calmed down, and
started to think: Maybe there
was something he really
needed to buy with that Rs.50 and he really didn’t ask for
money very often. The man
went to the door of the little
boy’s room and opened the

“Are you asleep, son?” He asked.
“No daddy, I’m awake,”
replied the boy.
“I’ve been thinking, maybe I
was too hard on you earlier”
said the man. “It’s been a long day and I
took out my aggravation on
you.. Here’s the Rs.50 you
asked for.”
The little boy sat straight up,
smiling. “Oh, thank you daddy!” He yelled.
Then, reaching under his
pillow he pulled out some
crumpled up bills.

The man saw that the boy
already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy
slowly counted out his
money, and then looked up at
his father.
“Why do you want more
money if you already have some?” the father grumbled.
“Because I didn’t have
enough, but now I do,” the
little boy replied.
“Daddy, I have Rs.100 now.
Can I buy an hour of your time?
Please come home early
tomorrow. I would like to
have dinner with you.”

The father was crushed. He
put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his
It’s just a short reminder to all
of you working so hard in
life. We should not let time
slip through our fingers without having spent some
time with those who really
matter to us, those close to
our hearts.
Do remember to share that
Rs.100 worth of your time with someone you love.
If we die tomorrow, the
company that we are
working for could easily
replace us in a matter of days.
But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.And
come to think of it, we pour
ourselves more into work
than to our family.
