Heartening Story with a Great Moral

Boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage.

They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes.

When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open.

He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter.

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by Its colour and drank it all.

It happened to be a strong medicine meant for adults to be taken in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband.

When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child,

He looked at his wife and uttered just five words.


1. What were the five words?

2. What is the implication of this story?



The husband just said “I am with you Darling”

The husband’s totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behaviour.

The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life.

There is no point In finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.

No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be  fewer problems in the world. “A journey of a thousand miles Begins with a single step.” Take off all your envies, jealousies, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.

Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out the warmth in human relationship.

    Children should not be left alone. They should be watched in order
    to protect them from harming themselves. But, when such incident
    takes place, they should not blame each other, and behave as the
    wife and husband did.

    It requires a lot of maturity to react as father sees dead child.Well, life can not be revoked.Think practically&react to make up loss

    Such a wonderful and understanding human. However I feel the doesn’t understand responsibility. She should be free to commit every mistake under the sun as he would understand and be with her.

    What was destined to happen, did happen, as you rightly comment.The husband deserve merit and admiration for his sense of understanding,high moral standard, and a thorough insight into human nature. In this sad and tragic moment he rises beyond common judgement and shows almost a divine love for and sense of fairness towards his wife, a gender subject still to a lot of prejudice, and persecution, in many places.Often tragic circumstances do give rise to sublime examples of human dignity.

    Before pointing your index finger to blame someone, remember that other fingers are pointing at you.

    Yes, good moral, but one should learn another thing as well:
    “DO IT YOURSELF” and don’t rely on others!! Although this was destined to happen but usually in similar situations, nobody is to be blamed IF AND ONLY IF everyone has done his best!! In this case, both the husband and the wife are guilty, for nothing is more important than their child’s safety! Hence, their child’s cause of “destined death” was their CARELESSNESS!!!
