Man also goes through the cycle of second childhood when he grows old. What pains me is that the current generation has a care free attitude, and leaving their parents in old-age homes. please remember that
hen one grows old the mental and physical capacities go down - here is when he/she needs help and hand holding. The present generation is leading a hif
life but never cares for the elderly parents who patiently wait for a few words from them
- the parents live in solitude expecting someone to speak to them and make them feel happy and wanted in this world. 

I have always come across people saying that its a headache to take care of elders - I would think within myself - imagine if the same would have been thought by your parents when you were a kid.

Every month sending money from abroad or from the city that you live in, does not fulfill the void created by feeling lonely and wanting to be talked to,listened to,cared for. We have to make them feel that the world is still wanting you and is a better place to lead a life to the fullest.stand beside your parents because they had a dream with you, they did so much for you. Most important what you are today is only for your parents not anyone else in the world. Look your parents with Love and care.

    Thanks for agitating a very important issue. I would like to narrate a story about it. A young man had a dependent elderly father. The young man considered it a limitation to his aspiration to rise to new heights.He decided to dispose off the old man. He carried him to a sea shore for the purpose.When he was about to throw him into the water, the old man requested him to throw in deeper water where he had thrown his own father to end his life ensuring a clear path to his personal growth. This made the young man to see a similar fate for him and, change his mind to kill his father.He brought him back to serve him for the remaining part of his life.
    The story carries a great wisdom for the over aspirant youth who shirk their responsibility to their elderly parents.

  2. You are absolutely right bro. The youth now a days is deviating from their religious and moral responsibilities in the name of growth. The story you mentioned clearly portrays the same fact.
