I have an understanding & responsible son.

Over the phone, i had a warm chat with Sheik Jameel. He is the eldest child of my good friend, Kabeer who recently has taken a back seat after working for more than forty years in the book business.

This was my conversation with him. "These few days i had a chance to be with your father who spoke so highly of you. Not only are you a hard working son, you have the intelligence and the understanding of life. Though your dad hadn't requested any assistance from you, you took the initiative to shoulder all the family expenses and needs. Now that your dad has retired, it won't be easy for him to pay all the necessary bills. He has been a responsible father and husband to the family, and he feels so happy to have you to replace his role now. You have certainly relieved his responsibilities, making him a satisfied and contented person. Though he might not tell you in person, he is extremely proud to have you as a supportive and a caring son. His sweat and toll for all these years are worth the while. And i am equally happy for both father and son."

Jameel was speechless while listening my compliment. By his sounding and confirmation, i am sure he is the happiest man at the moment too. His dad appreciated the son action by keeping silently in his heart, and i admired them by relating his appreciation out.
