A man who looks little old rings the bell of a house. After several minutes the door is opened by a boy.
” Come in uncle. I’ll tell dad that you have come ”
The man enters the house. The boy runs inside screaming to his father . His father comes out .
” Why are you here at this time brother? ”
” Nothing special.. I just came to see you all. ”
He gives a gift to the boy..
” This is for you”
The boy takes it politely and thanks him. His father asks ,
” How’s your wife and child? ”
The man glanced at him as to question why he asked that question. He gets thinking.
” How can we stay happy when our second child is with you? Hopefully the only son I have doesn’t know this. He calls his own brother as cousin! I can’t help it. How can I ? I’m not that much rich to feed two children and that’s the only reason why I had to do this sin.. I love both my children equally but when one of them calls me uncle… He doesn’t know the truth … ”
The other man asks ,
” What happened to you? Is everything alright? ”
” Ye..yes… They are fine . I must leave now” . He make a rapid glance at the boy and goes towards the door to leave.
” But you just came ”
” I have some important work to do ”
He rushes out..
” Can anyone understand my pain ? My own so calls me uncle. For him , my brother is his father . He respects him not me. Why does everything depend on money ? Why ? I can never get away from this truth . I can never live peacefully.. ” Small drops of tears comes out of his eyes.
