I read Franz Kafka's story "The Judgment" today. Its a very intriguing tragedy about the relationship between father and son. The story questioned me about certain emotional effects of parenthood on children.

The main focus of the story is on inability of the son to grow up, as he always had to fulfill the expectations of the father, rather than the expectation of his own. And when the time finally comes up for the son to stand up on his own, it causes such a conflict with the parent, that it leads to the tragic end of the son.

The way the author lays out the story is beautiful. The way the author has delivered, the idea, that the thoughts of son had been developed so much by the way he was brought up. Its one of a kind.

Its simple - "Once a son, always a son".
