Life’s greatest lesson

I had never felt so bad until the day I was into this situation. I gave my exam and was going home with my friend. We were waiting for the bus to arrive. It had been an hour, the bus was not on time. I was talking with my friend as usually, we do.
Later, suddenly she saw a person in a rickshaw and waved a hand. I asked her who was it. She hesitated for a while. I asked her again. Then she replied ”He was my dad.” I was in shock. I asked her again, ”Who the rickshawala?” She replied ”Yes.”
I asked ” Your dad drives an auto-rickshaw?” She hesitated and replied,” Ya, first he used to work in Air India but now he retired.” I asked her, ”What work did your dad do in Air India?” She said, ”  He used to work in the canteen over there.” I was so ashamed of myself. I was speechless. I was literally mute. I was just so sorry for her. But most importantly I was reminded of my dad’s hard work that he does for me. I was thankful to God that my dad does not work like her dad and I got a lesson to not take him and his love for me for granted. He has done so much for me and instead I give him nothing. Her dad came and took me and my friend in his auto-rickshaw. I was totally mute till the whole ride, I didn’t know what to say. At last, I paid my friend for her dad’s auto-drive. She was not taking but I told her that if she didn’t take it then I would never talk to her, at last, she took it. I felt a bit less guilty. But that incident shocked me for my whole lifetime. When my dad arrived home in the evening I just hugged him and said, ” Dad, I love you. You are the best. I’m sorry for everything.”  He didn’t know what was going in my mind but all he did was hugged he even tighter and asked, ” What happened? ” I had another hug as a reply.
