Original Language

একটি ছোট ছেলে মানুষের জীবনের কিছু জটিল অধ্যায় যেমন ধর্ম, মানবতা, নৈতিক মূল্যবোধ ইত্যাদি নিয়ে বিস্মিত হয়। তার বাবা খুব সহজ উপায়ে এবং জীবন থেকে খুব সম্পর্কিত উদাহরণ সহ তার প্রশ্নের উত্তর নিয়ে আসে। ছেলেটি গল্প বলার আকারে তার বাবার কাছ থেকে জীবনের পাঠ শিখতে শুরু করে। ছোট্ট ছেলেটি ধীরে ধীরে এই কোমল বয়সে জীবন দর্শন, নৈতিকতার দিক এবং জীবনের প্রকৃত অর্থ উপলব্ধি করতে শুরু করে, সহজ উপায়ে তাকে সত্যিকার অর্থে মানুষ হওয়ার কিছু কঠিনতম পাঠ শেখানো হয়। এইভাবে ছোট ছেলেটি সাধনার সূচনার জন্য তার যাত্রা শুরু করে।
