Beautiful moments

Yesterday i was talking this octogenarian acquaintance of mine and he told me about one of his friends...his friend's grandson got married, so he asked him to keep two days for family pooja and then for rest of his leave(he works in US), he could go to honeymoon. But what the grandson replied made his grandpa so emotional that he started crying....He said....Tatha, Honeymoon was meant for those persons who lived in a joint family and needed privacy to get to know each other. But here both of us are anyway going to live alone in US, so I wouldnt spend my leave going away..rather the money you are giving me to spend, with that we shall hire a vehicle and all of us would go and meet all our close relatives, and we wouldnt be eating with them, as it may inconvenience them, so we shall stay at hotel and eat outside.This way we can meet all of them, otherwise it gets difficult.

Tatha said..I am surprised at the suggestion you are giving, it should have been who suggested this and expected you to reject. I am blessed to have a grandson like you..

This sort of memories are meant to cherish forever...

Goood and it was so very nice of the grandson to say that .. It is true though honeymoon was for that reason in joint families ..

GOd bless them

Uma said...

a very considerate grandson indeed!

rama said...

What the grandson said was very correct. When two people are fortunate to live alone they surely don't need a Honeymoon, for every moment of their togetherness is like a honeymoon forever.
And his plan to spend his time with the family visiting relatives was indeed good.

Nice to be back here Renu. Hope all is well at your end.

sm:true..

vetrimagal: sometimes I think its luck, but sometimes I feel that a lot depends on upbringing too...

Actually, nowadays most of the children hate to visit relatives, here, it is the opposite. The grandfather is lucky to have him. This way it is a big get together!

Yes, 'This sort of memories are meant to cherish forever...'

Irfanuddin said...

undoubtedly his logic regarding honeymoon is convincing one....lovely post...!!

Renu said...

Sandhya: yes Sandhya, children dont like relatives, but later in life everybody yearns for a family, so if they understand it earlier, its good for them.

Manju: true!

Irfanuddin:Thanks!..I just wish and hope that more and more young people understand this..

Amrit said...

Very good :))

Don't want to brag but I did similar...

Happy Kitten said...

A well brought up son/grand son! May God bless him more...

Renu said...

Amrit: No its not bragging...if you did good, you must tell others, because you may inspire many more to do so...

Happy Kitten:.yeah, he must be getting blessings everywhere.
