Senior Citizens and Society

Posted by Admin in Kalpataru Blog

No society can exist without senior citizens.Earlier senior /retired citizens live with the extended family and they were considered to be the umbrella of the family.Every one used to get the same help, love and support and expert advice as and when required by any one.As time passed , they were kept away from the extended family and family split into several small families creating nuclear families in the process. Today senior and retired citizens live separately from their offspings and they are completely alone and independent.Also are exposed to many threats, such as ,health, safety, food, movement, social, economical and psychologial.When they need us the most we are not available but irony is that when we needed them they were always beside us.We forget what we were and what we have become and for whom and by whom we have been able to come upto this level of life. MOST SELFISH and UNGRATEFUL we are.Would God ever pardon us for this? Are we really able to face Him and pray for our success and prosperity? We think He will listen to us and bless us and fulfill our desire! Are we the only people living in the world with so many desires and aspirations? Parents and senior citizens do not deserve anything good in life?  Do they not have aspirations ,dreams and interests and to have peaceful and comfortable life? YES, THEY HAVE DESIRE FOR EVERY GOOD THING AND DESERVE TOO BUT in a very systematic and hush hush manner they have been ostracised by us,as if, they are highly unproductive and undesirable.WHAT INHUMAN ARE WE! 

So lets all take an oath to do something possible for us to bring smile on their innocent faces.THIS WOULD BE THE GREATEST AND THE BEST SUCCESS STORY OF OURS.

WE LOVE YOU PARENTS,GRAND PARENTS,UNCLES,AUNTS AND ALL SENIOR AND RETIRED CITIZENS THAT WE COME ACROSS IN OUR DAILY LIFE.
