When so ever there is discussion about India , we almost always bring our sanskars . We are proud of them , aren’t we?. Sacrifice for family , family bonds , parental care , child upbringing , wife’s devotion for husband are few of the points which we feel proud of.
In our social system when a man marries to a lady , we consider it to be bond for seven generation. Couple marry , bring child in the world. Parents sacrifice almost everything in the process of upbringing their child. In quest of giving them best , self comes last. Right from education to marriage , parents support child monetarily , mentally .
Then once child settles down he takes care of his parents along with his wife and children. Thats how our system runs.
Two days back i wrote in this blog about how 400 crore worth cars were purchased in gujarat in last year. While it showed how gujarat is thriving today what I am writing might show how gujarat is soon loosing its family values.
Few days back a news was published on front page of news papers. It has stats about old age home. What the stats showed was bit disturbing. There is no place left in old age home and lot of people are waiting for their number to come!!!!!!!!!
While for some old age home might be decision for their security , since their offsprings are out of country and they don’t feel secure staying alone , but for majority of people its harsh reality. For majority of people their own sons , their own daughter in law don’t want them!!!!
Harsh and sad reality but increasing and disturbing trend.
