Attempt #2

Love, Care.. Reality Check.



Incident is small but it had a great impact on my Heart and Soul. I was at bank to complete some formalities, waiting for my turn. There was little rush than usual at that hour. Few minutes later, father son duo entered in the bank. Father was too old to even walk, but his son was holding his hand. Carefully he made him sit on a chair besides me. His father sitting on a chair with a cane in one hand was constantly following his son with his eyes. I thought may be it was necessity for some procedure that needed father’s presence. Witnessing such a beautiful bonding between father and son in today’s world, where we hear children abandons their old parents made me happy. His father was rather lucky to have an obidient son, who still looks after him, cares for him and accompanies him leaving his own work aside. What was more beautiful was father still cares for his grownup son that reflects in his eyes. By then his son came near him, carefully he helped him to stand and took him at one counter. Father signed some documents. After completion of signature formalities, Within a second I saw his son asked him to sit signalling at the chair. Father took slow but careful steps towards the chair, while his son was busy enquiring something on the counter, then busy talking on cellular. All this while not even once he cared to  glance at his father. 

Few minutes later his son came near him and said something like, “I got a call from office, they are waiting for me.. it’s urgent. You hire a cab n reach home.” And left hurriedly not even intrested what his father has to say. I was shocked by this sudden change in his behaviour. I didn’t saw any love or care in his eyes. He asked his father to accompy with him just because he needed his signature on papers as it was unavoidable… DISGUSTING.

A son who seemed so obidient and caring now showed his true colors. His father took nearly a minute to reach at nearby chair, who can’t even stand without support, how can he left him to reach home all alone safely??  Yes he must have reached home safely, coz I believe God take care of Good Souls.

I didn’t knew them except this brief encounter, but then I still saw pain in his father’s eyes with lots of unanswered questions.

How can his son forget his childhood days, the time and money spent by his father for family’s happiness or to fulfill his demands. The hands that must have holded him in rush, the comforting hand that must have pacified him when something scared him and most important the man because of whom he was what he wanted to be, settled and able to earn position in society.

The incident brought tears in my eyes. I came to know the world is not what we think.. All beautiful, filled with love. There are few who still don’t know the real value of Love, Relationship and Parents.

My Little Wish.(Daily Prompt-Center)

Nothing Much I Need.


To My Lifeline,

I will Love to remain in one corner of your big world. The only thing I expect from You is the little Love, Care and Respect. I don’t care if you give less importance to me or my needs compare to others. I just want to be part of your Life. I don’t demand you to keep me as the center of the family or as the only important part of your life or I demand you to keep revolving around me most of the time leaving your important work aside. But I would Love to tell You that My life revolves around You n Only You. You are the only reason remained in my Life to whom I look up to and about whom I think when I get up in the morning and the only person I think before I sleep at night everytime.

I just want little Love, Care and Respect from You. Unlike a small place in your heart, I need a small space in your home too… So that I can see you everyday.

Your Old Dad.

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.




The two caring hands hold him for the first time. Happiness knew no boundaries of this proud parents. Days passed by and the journey of the new born begins. They hold his hand and helped him to take the first step of his life. The caring hands protects him when was about to fall. The scared baby cried a lot on the first day of his school. The first foundation of his carrer ‘Education’ started. The caring hands took him lovingly to learn the first alphabet of his life. They followed him, helped him in every stage of his life. Whenever he needs them, they stood by his side sacrificing their needs. His dreams became the first priority for this couple.
As years passed by, today this caring hands needs love, care, support in their life. Alone they supported each other for their daily chores. One day their baby now a young, educated and successful man holds their hand, took them out and helped them to sit in a car for a long drive. That day once again old parents happiness knew no boundaries. Car stops. Journey of the caring hands , the proud parents ends up in old age home.




It’s 5.30am . He got up to get ready as usual. After bath he fumbled through his wardrobe and took out a decent shirt and trousser. The wardrobe never got changed in the last few years. A quick breakfast and grabbing a ready tiffin on the table he walked out of the house glancing at the sleeping kids. A man who never shows his love and care by words but deep inside he truly cares for everyone .

Like everyday father got ready to go to office to secure the life of his lovedones.
