Arhi Tiny Tale: Lesson


“Aayush..beta get down”

Said the man in a husky voice, dressed in a fitted trouser and a button down shirt with sleeves rolled to perfection, patiently waiting for his request to be fulfilled by the majesty that was now pouting in disagreement.


“but daddy she…”




A stern hidden warning was enough for the tiny toddler to realize the topic was non negotiable and it was hard for the man to resist rolling his eyes at the way his 3 year old son vacate the swing, only after giving evil side glances to a tiny girl waiting for her turn. oh and with tears in her eyes.


Intertwining his hand with the tiny one he led them towards a bench located on the far end of the widespread park before realizing the astonishing fact that this 3 year old was developing a rebellious bone in his body.


kids these days!


He sat down on the bench before pulling his son closer in front of him and saw the way his lips were jutted outwards as a sign of disapproval. Like mom like son. Ruffling his wayward hair to perfection before adjusting the kid’s cloth, he then gave his undivided attention to the sulking kid.


“You made a girl cry..hmm”

He started..pausing in between to gauge the kid’s reaction, then added further.


“What does that made you buddy?”


There wasn’t a hint of anger in the question which made the kid realized the fact his dad was rather pointing at and after a moment of hesitation the child replied in a low voice.


“Bad boy”


“hmm”,tapping his feet, the man further added,


“Will mom be happy about this???”


This time the kid nodded his head in a clear NO without a moment’s hesitation and the man felt too proud to have nailed it so early without much fuss.


“Do you hurt your little sister like this?”


“No. I love her.she is my sister”, the kid replied in an innocent voice before twisting the grass beneath his shoes.


“Yes, you do. You are one awesome big brother. How’d you feel if some other guy made her cry like this?”


“I will feel bad”, the kid replied slowly before wiping his nose with the back of his hand at which the man removed the handkerchief from his pocket and cleaned the kid’s face.


“Thats good lil man”

The man ruffled the kid’s hair in praise and in turn received a proud priceless smile.


“Should good boys make girls cry?”

He asked this time fixing the collar of the kid’s shirt to which he vehemently shrugged in denial.


“Those who hurt others, what does that make them?”


“Bad. That makes them bad”


“and who’s the good boy here???”

The man asked with amusing smile on his lips as the kid jumped up and replied with enthusiasm before raising his hand.


“Aayush. Aayush is a good boy. Daddy is a good boy too”


“Thats my guy. So, Do you think we can say sorry now..mhm..?”

The man asked getting up and saw the kid had extended his hand as if he couldn’t wait now. Ruffling the hair before intertwining the fingers together they moved towards the swing area with an excited Aayush leading his dad.


Oh..the joys of parenthood. Arnav Singh Raizada couldn’t describe the priceless feeling he just experienced. Instilling the morals in his little one was like paving a way towards a better future. Nothing could top that proud feeling he felt surging in him as he saw Aayush went and apologized to the tiny girl. The girl embarrassed at the unexpected encounter flashed a toothless grin herself before shying away and leaving the swing voluntarily for his son.


Aayush looked at him in amusement for a nano second before getting on the swing happily.


A proud smug Raizada was sure his son has learned a precious lesson today.



Just for you lekhu ❤ 🙂

  1. rotten ji…U full filled my wish so fast…Ayush our little grumpy jr ASR of 3 yr old… and his stubbornness…akhir beta kiska hai?? lol…he got this gene from both his mom and dad…
    ASR..a man who hate his father…who didnt get love, care or some little time from his own dad..his father was not at all a good example of human….

    but here we can see…a entirely different side of him..he commanded…AAYUSH..his little man know that tone of his daddy..

    he is a perfect dad..he want his son a perfect gentleman in future..first step…Respect woman..awe thats so sweet…
    one of the main thing every parents of boys must follow, is to teach their kid to respect a woman…
    the rape news, abuse, eve teasing..etc we read it almost everyday..the way women treated in our country…

    he Arnav Singh Raizada..once upon a time humiliated, insulted someone..who hurt,cut that someone with sharp tongue…misunderstood..made that some one cry….he knew he is scarred, bitter, and very much imperfect…but now that someone is the woman who rule him now…his khushi..
    he want his little one to be a perfect gentleman…and the way he made him understand the points, Ayush didnt want to disappoint his mom, his sister….the way our boy accepted his mistake..arnav made sure his son should apologize the the little girl…

    he is completely a changed man…from a journey of a man who didnt accept his mistakes, a man who didnt feel sorry or say sorry to anyone….to journey of a father who teaches his son to accept mistake and apologize even if it is big or small…
    what a wonderful lesson…i am sure Ayush will never forget these type of lessons..

    thank u once again writer ji…
