The Emperor once saw a woman hugging and kissing a child that did not look particularly appealing. The Emperor expressed surprise that a woman could lavish so much love on such an unattractive child. ” That’s because t’s her own child,” explained Birbal. ” To a mother, her child is always beautiful. ” But the Emperor was not satisfied by the explanation.
The next day Birbal called a guard and in the Emperor’s presence ordered him to bring the most beautiful child to the palace. The following day the guard came to the palace with a small boy with buck teeth and hair that stood up like porcupine quills and hesitantly pushed him in front of the Emperor. ” T.. The most beautiful child, Your Majesty,” he stammered. How do you know he is beautiful? asked the Emperor. ” My wife, his mother, says so, ” replied the soldier.
Moral : – There is no arguing with mother’s love, It is consistent and unshakeable; nothing can supress it – neither the child’s looks nor other’s opinion about the child. There is much to learn from this exemplary love – if we could be half as consistent in our relationships, our dealing with our dear ones, collegues and friends would be much more steady and save everyone a lot of heartache. This story teaches that everybody is special in some way or the other, though we may not always be able to perceive what it is that makes each person special and loveable.
