Only good partners can build a good home
(I wrote this based on a tamil write up in face book by Mohan Krishnaswamy.My thanks to him)
There was a person who always fought with his wife,
And he would daily challenge her, “One day ,manage my office,
Then only you would realize all my difficulties “ and one day,
She lost her calm and said , “OK”, meanwhile you manage our home and see
So the next s day , she went to the office , instead of him,
And she saw the office was was very dirty and though she was,
The wife of the owner , she herself swept and cleaned the office,
Then she examined attendance register and gave warning to all those who were late.
She managed everything well and when she was about to start home,
Her secretary reminded about the daughter’s marriage reception of her manager,
She art tended the marriage , told convincing excuse for her husband’s absence,
Gave suitable presents , took dinner with them , though all her thoughts was about her home.
When she reached her home , her husband shouted her , “Your children,
Are not human beings but monkeys . They do not obey me, they do not study at all.
When asked to eat, they do not eat, and I beat them black and blue ,
And have made them sleep in that corner and alsoI have not eaten as I could not cook properly.”
The lady became very sad that her husband has needlessly beaten her kids,
Rushed to the bed room , switched on the light and asked her husband,
“Why have you made this boy sleep here, he is the kid of neighbouring house”
And then he told, “Oh possibly that is why he was crying loudly and tried to run away.”
They both then understood that without love, kindness and efficiency,
Of a housewife , house will not run and the role of man in earning money was great.
And in these days when both of them are home makers and office workers ,
Unless both of them understand each of them are equal in everything home will not run.
