A TRAGIC MEET

Long ago, there lived in Persia a great warrior named Rustom who was truly loved by his fellow-countrymen for his bold deeds and generous heart. The ruler of the kingdom made him the commander-in-chief of his army. He was newly married and loved his wife very much. But he could give little time to his wife as frequently he had to go into battles with the enemies of the kingdom. Once he had to leave the kingdom to conquer more lands. His wife was expecting a baby when he left the kingdom. In those days warriors leaving home for battles would return home after many, many years or would not return home at all. At the time of departure, Rustom gave his wife a locket to be given to his son. Rustom went on conquering lands. In the meantime, many years passed. Rustom’s wife had given birth to a male child. He had also grown up into manhood and became a great warrior. Rustom heard about his son whose name was Sohrab. He was very happy to learn that his son had also become a great warrior. Both fathers arid son longed to see each other. Sohrab’s mother told her son about the valor and achievements of his father. Sohrab felt proud of his father. As a warrior, Sohrab also went on conquering lands with his army. At one stage, both father and son met face to face with their armies. But they could not recognize each other, as they had not met each other before.

Sohrab told him everything. Rustom broke down emotionally. He told Sohrab that he was his unfortunate father. A happy smile spread on Sohrab’s face. At long last, he had met his father whom he adored so much. After a while, Sohrab breathed his last in his father’s arms.
