Shravan is the "SYMBOL" for an odient child, his devotion towards his parents is incomparable to any. though his parents were blind he carried them for the pilgrimage, and tried to fulfill their smallest dream,wish.

in compare to today we see, parents in oldage home,
jis maane apne bete ko dudh pilaaya ,wahi bachha, use ghar main bhi nahi rakhte,
jeete ji toh use khane nahi diya, par mar ne ke baad dher saare ko shradhh main khila dete hain
jeete ji unke chashma (specticles) nahi pochhe par marne ke baad unki tasveer bhi nahi puchhate,
ek maa apne garbh main panch bachho ko paal sakti hain par ek beta panch kamron wale ek flat ek maa ko nahi paal sakte.

kaha gaya apne bharat varsh ka "SHARAVAN" ?
har maa ne apne beto ko ye kahani sunai hogi, par kya hua uska? ...more

The story of Shravan is well known to every one to be repeated here. The Question pertains to enunciating those specific quality or qualities of Shravan as a role model as a specific entity for which he became famous for, is remembered and quoted at times by some to impress up on the important aspect of what entails duties of children towards their parents.

He stands as a perfect example of a devoted son, whose only pursuit in life was to look after his parents both of whom were blind and thus dependent on them. As the story goes, he never complained, gave up his own wishes or whatever a normal young man of his age would have opted for and set himself only one priority - that of taking care of his blind parents, keep them as happy as possible and fulfilling all their wishes, the result of which was him embarking on a pilgrimage for their sake. Rest of the story, you know.

Can we expect the same thing in the present day or more important, is it right for any one to demand that kin ...more

Shravan Kumar, if the one killed by King Dashrath, put his parents into two pans of a Behangi on his shoulders and travelled on foot on teerth yatra for the old ones. Thus he passed his time as well as served his parents apart from earning a good name as a devoted son as perks.

When Shravan was hit by the arrow of King Dasaratha,the boy criedcpiteously and wondered "Who can be my enemy?Never I have done any harm to anyone?What is going to happen to my old blind parents now,with none to look after them.?"When the King came near Shravan, the boy said " Why did you aim arrow at me while I fetch water for my blind parents who are thirsty and waiting for me in the Ashrama.?" You are a King,and instead of protecting me you have slained me. Now you go to my parents and ask for forgiveness,else their anger would reduce you to ashes..Go atonce and save yourself and before going pull this arrow so that my pains will end "
Now the boy in teens,though harmed by the King did not loose his temper,he only lamented,even at his death bed he was worrying about his old blind parents and their future and their thirst. he also suggested the King to go and ask for forgiveness for his sin otherwise the king would be reduced to ashes.The boy was also concerned for the King's welf ...more

His sincere devotion for his parents made him famous.

He devoted his life to take care of his blind parents because he knew and understood how much they had given him and his life centered around his parents. When they expressed a desire to go on a pilgrimage...he made a contraption of two baskets tied to a rod and had his parents sit on a basket each and carried the rod on his shoulders On the way, his parents were thirsty, so he put the baskets down and went to a pond to get some water..King Dasarath who was passing by on a hunting mission, mistook the gurgling sound of shravan taking the water in a pot to that of an animal and shot an arrow at him which killed him.. Even as he was dying, shravan told Dasarath to take the water to his thirsty parents. When the parents learnt of shravans death, they were pained and in their bitterness wished that Dasarath too wud experience the loss of a son and die of longing as they did....which happened when Lord Rama was sent to exile.
