The Earth is round!There was a Village Assistant by name Kirti Chandra happily living with his family comprising of Wife, daughter and a son. The son named Pradeep was doing well in his studies, ranking first in every field and the teachers were proud of their student. Suddenly Kirti decided to shift his son to a boarding school in a city as he felt that good faculty and infrastructure would ensure his betterment and future prospects. The boy refused to leave his parents, friends, beloved sister but he forcefully joined him in the school. The boy repeatedly requested his father at the school stairs saying that he would study well in his old school and won't trouble his sister and mother. But Kirti convinced him saying that it was everyone's wish for his bright future. Finally,he continued the studies there, got good rank in the JEE and became a Software Engineer and settled in Bangalore.
Life cycle won't wait for none. Kirti performed his daughter's marriage and lost his beloved better-half. Kirti's son Pradeep falls in love with his colleague, both of them got married and enjoying their life. Kirti continues his routine in his village after his retirement and comfortable with his changed life. His son and daughter-in-law visited him and Kirti felt very happy. The time he spent with them appeared to be a greatest moment in life. Suddenly Pradeep proposed that he wanted to take him with them and he agreed happily.
They took him to a place where Kirti took Pradeep some years back for a qualitative education. They were at the same stairs and he asked the son , "Why did you bring me here?"
"Dad, there was a growing competition in the filed of education and the institute which I studied couldn't withstand to the changed trend and now it is converted as an Old-age home. We can't afford to live you alone at that village, nor we could take you to our place as both of us are working and can't spend time with you."
Kirti was stunned to hear the words as his joy was short lived. "Don't worry, my school Head Master whom you all regarded as great man is also one your inmates here", the great son added.
Nothing is heard by him now. He was recollecting the old scene of little Pradeep begging him not to join him in the boarding school. Now it his turn, after all, the Earth is round and hence proved again.
