Inspirational Story: A harsh word


eMediNexus    18 November 2017

A woman bought eggs and butter from a farmer who had a fine reputation not only for the quality of his products but also for his promptness of delivery. Then one day when she was expecting guests he failed to come. On the next delivery she spoke harshly to him. At the end of her tirade he said quietly I m sorry if I caused you any inconvenience but I had the misfortune of burying my mother yesterday. Ashamed the woman determined never to speak harshly to anyone again until she fully understood the cause of the delay. Often we never care for other travails and traumas. Like a frog in the well our feelings remain confined to our milieu. Even a farmer has his own priorities. Sometimes we do not empathize with others. What if we had been stricken with some tragedy and someone callously chastised us.
