plz read this story as it is really hrt touching

My mom only had one eye.   I hated her...  she was such an embarrassment.  My mom ran a small shop at a flea market.  She collected little weeds and such to sell... anything for the money we needed she was such an embarrassment.  There was this one day during elementary school.
 
I remember that it was field day, and my mom came.  I was so embarrassed.

How could she do this to me? I threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school..."Your mom only has one eye?!" and they taunted me.

I wished  that  my  mom would just disappear from this world so I said to my mom,  "Mom, why don't you have the other eye?! You're only going to make me a laughingstock.   Why don't you just die?"
 
My mom did not respond.  I guess I felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to think that I  had  said  what I'd wanted to say all this time.
Maybe it was because my mom  hadn't  punished  me,  but I didn't think that I had hurt her feelings very  badly. 

That night...I woke up, and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water.  My mom was crying there, so quietly, as if she was afraid that she might wake me. I took a look at her, and then turned away. Because of the thing I had said to her earlier, there was something pinching at me in the corner of my heart. Even so, I hated my mother who was crying out of her one eye. So I told myself that I would grow up and become successful, because I hated my one-eyed mom and our desperate poverty.

Then I studied really hard.  I left my mother and came to Seoul and studied, and got accepted in the Seoul University with all the confidence I had. Then, I got married.  I bought a house of my own. Then I had kids, too. Now I'm living happily as a successful man.  I like it here because it's a place that doesn't remind me of my mom. This happiness was getting bigger and bigger, when someone unexpected came to see me.
 
"What?! Who's this?!"
 
...It was my mother...Still with her one eye.  It felt as if the whole sky was falling apart on me.  My little girl ran away, scared of my mom's eye.  And I asked her,  "Who are you? I don't know you!!!" as if she trying to make that real. I screamed at her "How dare you come to my house and scare my daughter! GET OUT OF HERE!  NOW!!!"
 
And to this, my mother quietly answered, "oh, I'm so sorry.  I may have gotten the wrong address," and she disappeared. Thank good ness... she doesn't recognize me.  I was quite relieved. I told myself that I wasn't going to care, or think about this for the rest of my life.

Then a wave of relief came upon me...one day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. I lied to my wife saying that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went down to the old shack, that I used to call a house...just out of curiosity there, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground.  But I did not shed a single tear. She had a piece of paper in her hand.... it was a letter to me.

She wrote:

My son...

I think my life has been long enough now. And... I won't visit Seoul anymore... but would it be too much to ask if I wanted you to come visit me once in a while?  I miss you so much. And I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion.  But I decided not to go to the school.... For you...  I'm sorry that I only have one eye, and I was an embarrassment for you. You see, when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye.  As  a  mother,  I couldn't stand watching you having to grow up with only  one  eye...  so I gave you mine...I was so proud of my son that was  seeing  a  whole  new world for me, in my place, with that eye.  I was never upset at you for anything you did. The couple times that you were angry with me. I thought to myself, 'it's because he loves me.'  I miss the times when you were still young around me. 

I miss you so much.  I love you.  You mean the world to me.

My world shattered!!! 

Then I cried for the person who lived for me... My MOTHER 

I am not asking you guys to forward this email to anyone. Just pause for a moment and pray for our parents so that God gives them all the happiness that they rightfully deserve.......!!!!!

JUIT V/S JIITU - Thank God I am a JUITian...

I thought I'll write about this topic after JIIT opens up for next semester but i guess i have seen all the shades of JIIT already so i can very well show you the difference between the two institutes... Although both of them are backed by the same great Jaypee group but only JUIT represents the true greatness of this group... Beautiful surroundings, awesome building,great learning atmosphere and above all great people...  Some of JUITians will disagree with me on several points but guys trust me no one knows JUIT better than me and come and spend a month here in JIIT you yourself will feel the difference...  I completed my graduation from Jaypee university of information technology waknaghat,solan {H.P}, A place which has given me so many great memories,some awesome friends, i met with some really nice and loving people... Even the faculty in JUIT is quite caring...  Its because of  HCL's Japanese language training that brought me to JIIT a sister institute of JUIT located in
