At a day and age when it has become a lifestyle trend of sort to help your parents find a retirement home or visit them sporadically blaming busy schedules, this son does a complete 180 and alters his ways to suit his parents.
Devis Devassay Chiramel, who works in Bahrain, has been coaxing his father to visit the country since the past three years. Each time, Devis hinted about visiting Bahrain, his father would brush off the topic with a smile and a nod. In the mean time though, his mother has visited the country thrice. Finally, it is on last December that he got to know of the real reason why his father wouldn’t accompany him to this country in the Middle East.
His father, a simple farmer hasn’t ever worn footwear in his life. Also hasn’t worn anything other than the humble mundu. So the father fears that his son might be embarrassed or be made fun of by friends and colleagues if his father turned up wearing mundu and without footwear.
