Think Before You Speak

It was a sunny day, but the climate was enjoyable. Everyone in the railway station was waiting for the train to arrive. Among the crowd, there were a group of friends, youngsters who were on board for vacation.

It was a busy station with juice shop, mobile restaurants, coffee and tea stalls, newspaper shop, restaurants, etc. The announcement regarding the arrival of the train was made and everyone prepared to get into the train their appropriate places.

The group of friends made loud noise as the train enter the station to welcome it. They ran to get their reserved seats before anyone get into the train.

The empty seats were filled and the train whistled to move. An old man with a young boy aged around 15 years came running to get the train. They enter the train and the train started to move. They had their seats just adjacent to the friends group.

The young boy was so surprised to see everything.

He acclaimed at his father, ‘Dad, the train is moving and the things are moving backwards.’

His father smiled and nodded his head.

As the train starts moving fast, the young boy again screamed, ‘Dad the trees are green in colour and runs backward very faster.’ His father said, yes dear and smiled.

Just like a kid, he was watching everything with great enthusiasm and happiness loaded with tons of surprises.

A fruit seller passed selling apples and oranges. He young boy asked his dad, ‘I want to eat apples.’ His father bought him apples. He said, ‘Oh apple looks so sweet than it tastes’ I love this colour.’

The group was watching all the activities of this boy and asked the boy’s father ‘Is his son has any problem? Why he is behaving very differently?’

A friend from the group made fun of him and should, ‘his son is mad I think.’

The father of the young boy with patience replied to the friend group.

‘My son was born blind. Only a few days before he was operated and got the vision. He is seeing various things in his life for the first time.’

The young friends became very quiet and apologized to his father and son.
