"It looks so odd Mom, please ask Dad to change it", said young Ryan when he saw their new house for the first time.
"It is important to your father darling. You need to understand that."
"Our house looks so beautiful but the look is ruined by this rusty gate. Why do we have to keep this? It deserves a place in trash."
"Memories, my son. This gate was a part of your grandfather's house, that is lying amidst ruins now. Your grandfather was a very hardworking man, he made this himself."
"Actually, it doesn't look all that bad now."
