Story on Balanced Life

.
An elderly man in Mumbai calls his son in New York and says, 'I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce; 35 years of marriage... and that much misery is enough!
.

''Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams. 'We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,' the old man says. 'We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her!'
.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. 'Heck they're getting divorced,' she shouts, 'I'll take care of this.' She calls Mumbai immediately, and screams at the old man, 'You are not getting a divorce. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU UNDERSTAND?' and she hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 'Okay', he says, 'It's all set. They're both coming for our anniversary and paying their own airfare!'


MORAL OF THE STORY:

Nobody is busy in this world all 365 days. The sky is not going to fall down if you take few days LEAVE and meet your dear ones. OFFICE WORK and MONEY MAKING IS NOT EVERYTHING IN LIFE.

Thanks Doc. ADB guides us how to achieve balance in life. Ditto.
