Few days ago I was waiting for my friend. My eyes caught an old couple on the road. They were too old to even walk without support. Holding each others hands, slowly and carefully taking small steps. They were buying vegetables, counting money that must have left with them and checking into their bag everything they needed was bought or is their anything they forgot.
While watching this aged couple a thought crept into my mind that even at this age of enjoying a relaxed retired tensionfree life , they had to come out to buy vegetables and whatever they needed. Where are their childrens?? Is it their own decision or no choice left with them but to take care of everything they need on their own?
I looked at them and they doesn’t seem happy doing all this . Instead they looked tired, worried and scared. Tired of holding bags, worried about everything they needed were bought or forgot something and what if they have to come out again. Scared of traffics around them.
If they were abondoned by their own childrens, I don’t understand how can people find their aged parents as a liability. Agreed Not everyone leave their parents and I myself have seen many grownup childrens who love their aged parents and do whatever possible to keep them happy. But there are some peoples who forgot that because of these aged parents they are in this world and whatever they achieved today in this society. Parents gave them good education, support and whatever they needed in their life. How can they forget selfless love and care they received from them in their childhood.
Parents are next to God. They bought us in this world and it’s our duty to take care when they are old and need our love and support. I personally think childrens payback time starts once they start earning. I know we can never repay the love, care and sacrifices they had done for us. Never forget Whatever we are today we got from our parents.. it’s selfless. How can people forget that it’s their duty to take care of their aged parents. Little care, love and respect is not a big thing they expect from their grownup children.
Remember everyone going to be old one day and what if our childrens treat us the same way?? What if tommorrow they leave us just because we are old.. Do old peoples don’t have emotions and sentiments? Do old peoples don’t feel pain in their heart when their own kids treat them wrong or get irritated by their mere voice?
Whenever I get a chance I always help aged peoples in a small way like by helping them to cross the road, sometimes just a small conversation while waiting for bus or during morning or evening stroll at park. It makes my day beautiful, makes me feel blessed and lucky.
I believe karma exists. Abondon your parents, your child will treat you the same.
Little things I wish everyone should follow:-
Love your parents. Respect aged peoples known or stranger.
Before leaving home give a warm Hug to your parents and the sweet smile on their face will brighten your whole day.
Everyday Spare some time to spend with your parents.
Their blessings will make your life beautiful.
Lucky are those who have their parents with them. Respect and give them the love and care that they deserve.
