story – Rabindranath Tagore’s father Devendranath Tagore was a philosopher and a great knowledgeer of religion. He was also very famous because of his charity. There was never an empty hand through his door, but there was a time in his life when he was financially weak.
One day some officials of an organization operating the orphanage near Devendranath Tagore arrived. Officials said, ‘Your father Dwarkanathji had announced a donation of one lakh rupees for the orphanage. Then after his death this thing remained incomplete. Right now we are in great need of money, that is why we have come to you. ‘
At that time Devendranathji’s financial condition was not good. One lakh rupees used to be a huge amount then. He did not even have any proof that father had announced the donation to these people, but Devendranathji believed the authorities and said, ‘If my father has given any promise, I will do it completely.’
Devendranath Tagore sold some of his land and arranged for one lakh rupees for the orphanage. After this, one day he told his son Rabindranath Tagore, ‘If the parents have pledged to do something in public interest, they have given a promise, then it is the duty of the child to fulfill the promise of his parents, Because our reputation is the reputation of our family. ‘
Rabindranath Tagore used to say, ‘I never forget this thing of my father and I always explain this to others too.’
Learning – The children have the responsibility to complete whatever good works are started by parents and other elders of the household or who have left the good works incomplete. Carrying on the good deeds of fathers is also like worshiping for children.
