Once there was a businessman who only remained busy all the time in minting (earning excessively)money. He was well-settled, good looking and a pleasing personality but his only dream was to be the richest man of his city therefore he worked round the clock. He had no time for his family which consisted of an adorable son and beautiful wife. They would always complain of his busy schedule but he never paid any heed to them. One day, the man reached his home, rang the bell, and to his surprise, he found that his wife had no reaction on his arrival. She looked here and there (as if no body were there) and shut the door. Meanwhile, he entered his home and tried to talk to his wife but didn’t get any reply. His son, who was playing over there, asked his mom who was at the door. She replied that no one was there. Seeing the reaction of his wife the man was dumbstruck. He stood up, went to his wife, tried to figure out the reason, but all in vain. On the other hand, his son was continuously asking his mother when his father would come ans what he would bring for him to eat. He was unable to find out the reason of their (wife and son) reaction and wanted to know why they were behaving like that.
Soon, their landline phone erupted, his wife picked up the phone and somebody told her that her husband was no more after meeting with an accident. She started crying like hell & seeing her cry, her son also started rolling down little tears from his gentle eyes. But the man couldn’t believe all that as he was standing there with them. Soon, came an ambulance and brought his dead body. When dead body’s face was unveiled, the man found that he himself was lying dead over there. He realised that he was no more but his spirit. He started crying but no one noticed him as he was dead. He departed from there with a heavy heart as he couldn’t see his family (wife & son) crying like that.
Now, it was the time to go to God for his settlement of deeds. He requested God that he should be given a last chance to meet his family and tell them that he is going far away them and he would never return back. But God didn’t pay heed to his request rather he blamed that businessman for ignoring his family even after having so much of vacant time and preferring money which is his no more. He realises his mistake, cries and closes his eyes.
All of a sudden, his eyes are opened and he finds himself lying in the bed. He stands up and sees that his wife and child are playing outside. They are not crying anymore rather enjoying the company of each other. He goes to them, hugs them as tight as possible and starts crying. He, soon, realises that he was only dreaming but that dream changed his life altogether.
Moral : We should prefer our family as they are our only assets. We may earn money anytime but family and their love will never come back again. So love your family and spend time with them.
