A gentleman who was the managing director of a company was taking interviews .There were many candidates .Almost half a day passed by & the last candidate entered the interview room. The qualifications of this candidate was not upto the mark but he was in dire need of the job. He pleaded with the MD to give him this job as he had a bed ridden father at home. The MD enquired about his father’s health & about his past employment. The candidate said ” Sir , my father always says that his last wish is to meet that young boy whom he had thrown out of his company some years back .His mother was also bed ridden & that young boy was very hard working .He used to come late to office due to his mother’s ill health but used to sit late & finish his entire work. Sir ,my father always recollects that & repents & wants to apologize & ask forgiveness from that young boy .Sir ,please give me this job .I ‘ll always be indebted to u” .The boy had tears in his eyes. The MD recollected the circumstances in which his mother passed away .He didn’t have the financial resources to save her. He couldn’t control his tears. He also remembered his mother’s last words to him “Please forgive your boss ,my son .God has something better in store for you” The MD expressed his desire to meet the boy’s father . The boy took him home. He saw an old man ,very weak & tired lying on the bed. The MD went closer to touch his feet. He couldn’t believe his eyes .It was his own boss who had thrown him out & it was the same person who was the cause of his mother’s death. “Sir ,How r u? I m Vinayak.Do u remember me?” The old man strained his eyes .He recognised him & started weeping. He held his hands tight & kept on weeping. Finally he said ” My son, I ve waited for this day all my life.Now I have no regrets if God calls me. Please forgive me ,my son. I was carrying this emotional baggage since a long time. I have got what I deserved .See my state now. I realise ur anguish ,my son when u had a bed ridden mother.Please forgive me. I know ur loss is irreparable. ” The MD remembered the last words of his mother. He said “Sir, Who m I to forgive anyone? God has already forgiven u . But ,I can definitely do a very small thing for u. I can see ur son is very hardworking.He can join our company. I m not giving him the job .It is his hard work that has got him the job” Saying this ,the MD consoled his boss. His boss had no words to say .There were only tears flowing.
