Parents spend their lives working hard, making sacrifices and often even giving up their dreams for the sake of their children. Providing a good education, upbringing and support in every way for children to have a successful and prosperous future is every parent’s priority in life.

But the gesture of a Kerala man living in Bahrain towards his parents was something that captivated everyone’s attention. The man named Devis Devassy Chiramel wanted his parents to visit him in Bahrain, but his father kept refusing since he wears a traditional mundu without any shoes and didn’t want to embarrass his son.

To convince his father to visit Bahrain, Chiramel decided to go barefoot unless his elderly parents joined him. In his post Chiramel wrote that “It’s a little painful as I walk barefoot. But when I think of my parents’ sacrifices for me, the pain doesn’t affect me/is sweet”.

Chiramel, who convinced his parents to travel to Bahrain, added that “It is when I became a father myself that I understood the sacrifices that my parents have done for me. Instead of keeping flowers on the grave of your parents, it is better to hand them flowers when they are alive.”

The post is melting hearts all over the internet as people can’t stop appreciating this touching gesture.
