WELCOME TO CAFE KARMA... MY ACTIONS ALONE SPEAK IN MY LIFE!



A father very often used to treat his son with a Special Toffee and the boy's friend with an Ordinary One whenever they were together.
  • “I have a greater responsibility towards my son and than towards his friend. I am simply doing my job!” 
used to be his answer to any one who happened to point out the differential treatment.
  • "But it's not right to show that differential treatment in front of his friend. It's unethical!"
a few well wishers used to point out.
  • "That way if I do daily, it's going to be a costly process. And equally I don't want to give my son almost daily the Ordinary Toffee. What else can I do here?"
used to be his argument.

Another gentleman in a similar situation used to give the Ordinary Toffee to his son as well as to his friend keeping the cost well under control saying that his son did not need special attention from him in such cases and so both were equal to him and he could not differentiate there.

  • "But he is your son and why do you deny him daily something Special?"
a few well wishers used to ask..
  • "I agree but that way it's too costly for me to give both of them Special Toffees. And it's equally unethical to give that Special Toffee secretly to my son when his friend is with him by the side. The best option in the situation is this alone!"
used to reiterate the father..

Days passed thus and soon they rolled into months and years.. Both the sons had grown into full matured individuals with their own attached family responsibilities and both the fathers had become old with their own infirmities..

The first one ever expected something or the other from his father.. 

  • “Why are you not treating me Special? I see you keep a lot of monies with you and neither you spend that on yourself nor prepared to give me out of that. I was all the time Special to you. Is this the way you treat me as Special? Further, all along I see few others who constantly interact with you too are eating into this which is genuinely mine!” 
The second ever used to reiterate,
  • “My father has every right to live like me and be happy in his own way. I don’t want any Special monies or facilities from him and my life can well be managed with the capabilities he developed into me. 
  • In fact, his capacities are down now and I should rise to the occasion. Let me see if I can help him at this stage so that his day to day activities go on smoothly in the association of his friends and nearby!” 
A story that truly fits in to the WOW Challenge.. Welcome to Cafe karma!
