When I was young, the old people were respected citizens, possibly because they had money and the youngsters were dependent on that. Times have changed now.The serior citizens , both man and women, do have money now but it is much , much less than their son and daughter.
In my young age, all youngsters thaought that it is their responsibility to look after their parents. I know how much suffering and sacrifice is involved in such a decision.. But they did it. Young people are more busy and more self centered nowadays. They think, their responsibility is over , if , they can appoint a nurse to look after their ailing parents and give them money o live an old age home. When a woman or man becomes sick, the first , thought that comes to his mind is helplessness, insecurity, and fear. Sons and daughters do come , admit them in the hospital, give the best treament possible. But beyond a few days, they cannot stay. Their poor mother or father is left alone to look after their respective partners. I do not find any solution.Do you? Ramachander
