Velan has a son. His name is Muthu. Muthu was only ten years old, and he was an excellent boy. He loved his grandpa. He didn’t like his father’s attitude on his grandfather. One day Kuppan was taking food from his clay plate that his son had offered to him. While eating from the plate, his plate fell and broke. Velan rushed into the house and saw the damaged plate. He became angry with his father and abused his father. The old man felt terrible about the incident, and his son’s harsh words wounded him badly.

“What are you trying to do, Muthu?”

“I am making a wooden plate!” replied Muthu.

“What is it for?” asked his father.

“I am making this plate for you to eat when you grow old. When you become old like the grandfather, you’ll need a plate for meals. A plate produced from earthen sand might break when your hands tremble during your old age. Then I may have to scold you severely. So, I thought of making a wooden plate so that all this can be avoided.”

The carpenter was stunned to listen to this. Only now he realized his mistake. Velan felt somber about his personal behavior. He understood his errors. He then changed his attitude towards his father.

From that day, Velan treated his father with proper respect.
