A Lesson for a Bad Tempered Boy

Once there was a young boy with a high temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.

On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad! Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased. It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he become so proud of himself, that he couldn’t wait to tell his father. Pleased, his father suggested that he should now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper. Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails gone. Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

“You have done very well, my son.” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”

The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak. “When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these and no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”

The Theme : This is a story about how a son with a high temper lost his patience and how his father taught him a good lesson. The father asked him to hammer a nail into a wooden fence each time he lost his temper. When the son drove 37 nails in total, he saw that only a few are left and thought to himself that he should have patience. This worked as a self-control and the son learnt not to lose his temper. The central theme of the story is that one should not lose temper illogically and what one does by losing temper leaves a permanent impression which cannot be changed later.

(এই গল্পটি হলো কীভাবে বদমেজাজী এক সন্তান দৈর্য হারাতো আর কীভাবে তার বাবা তাকে উচিত শিক্ষা দিল সেই সম্পর্কে। বাবা তাকে বললেন যতবার সে তার রাগ সামলাতে ব্যর্থ হয় ততবার সে যেন কাঠের বেড়ায় একটি পেরেক ঠুকে দেয়। যখন সেই ছেলে মোট ৩৭টি পেরেক ঠুকেছে তখন সে দেখল মাত্র কয়েকটি অবশিষ্ট রয়েছে আর মনে মনে ভাবল তার ধৈর্য ধরা উচিত। এটা আত্মনিয়ন্ত্রণের কাজ করল আর ছেলেটি ধৈর্য ধারণ করতে শিখে গেল। গল্পটির মূল বিষয়বস্তু হচ্ছে অযৌক্তিকভাবে কারো মাত্রাতিরিক্ত রেগে যাওয়া উচিত নয় আর রাগ সামলাতে না পেরে কারো যে অবস্থা হয় তা এক স্থায়ী ছাপ/প্রভাব রেখে যায় যা পরবর্তীতে পরিবর্তন করা যায় না।)
