Story: I was So Angry that I Left Home



One day, I was so angry, that I left home, swearing not to return, till I became a big guy.

Parents, who can't even buy me a Bike, have no rights to dream to make me an Engineer.

​ ​
In my fit of anger, I didn't even realise that I was wearing my father's Shoes.
​ ​
I even stole his wallet, which had some papers, torn as well, which my mother won't seen...While, I was rushing on foot towards the bus station, I realised some prickly pain in my foot. I also felt dampness inside the shoe.
​ ​
That is when I realised the shoe had a hole underneath.
​ ​
There were no buses around.
​ ​
Not knowing what to do, I started to look in my Dad's wallet. I found a loan receipt of Rs. 40,000, which he taken from his office. A laptop bill (he had bought for me).
​ ​
To my utter shock, also found a letter from his manager to wear a neat looking shoes, henceforth to the office.I remembered my mother pestering him to buy a pair of new shoes, but he would convince her that his shoes would last another six months at least.
​ ​
Also, found an old scooter to a new bike, Exchange offer letter in his wallet.
​ ​


I instantly remembered, that when I left home, my Dad's scooter was not there.I started feeling weak in my
​​
legs, and felt like weeping uncontrollably!I ran back home with my foot paining, only to find my Dad nor the scooter there. I found him at the exchange offer place.
​ ​
Looking at my Dad, my grief engulfed me.
​ ​
I hugged him tightly and started crying loudly, said "Dad I don't need the Bike".


That is when I realised, the pain, hardship our parents go through, and the unconditional love that they give us.
​ ​
We should only look to seek our needs and not our unrealistic wants.
​ ​
Ridiculing parents when they are alive, and longing for them when they are not around, has no meaning.
