Real Men Cry II

Here is a story, a sequel to my post 'Real Men Cry' dated 12.08.2011:
(The story is quoted by Vithal C. Nadkarni in The Economic Times of 25.08.2014)

There I had quoted the saying:

A son is a son till he gets a wife; a daughter is a daughter for life.

Now this.

After marriage, a couple had vowed to keep their door closed to everyone. One day, the boy's parents rang the bell. The couple saw them and looked at each other. He desperately wished to welcome them but remembering the vow to his wife, refrained from doing it.

After some days, the girl's parents come. This time, despite the agreement with her husband, she opens the door with tears in her eyes. She tells her husband," I'm sorry, dear, but I can't do this to my own parents." He keeps quiet.

Years roll by. They are blessed with two sons. Then they have a baby girl. The father celebrates her birth with a grand party. The wife asks, "Why such extravagance? We did not have such a grand party when either of our sons was born!"

The husband replied calmly, "Because she is the one who will open her door for me."


Your little girl will hold your hand only for a little while but she will hold your heart for the whole life time!
