Dear Editor,
Individualistic and opportunistic thinking has made the structure of society rude and insensitive in the present era. Now the essence of relationships remains only that people are maintaining relationships as per their need. As soon as the need ends, even the elders in the house start being considered a burden. Today, it is the same story in every household that the elders of the house are forced to live a life of loneliness, contempt, neglect and fear by the family members. In this era of modernity, consumerist culture and metropolitanDue to modern understanding, there has been a change in the thinking of the new generation in the changing environment of social values. The integrated lifestyle has created many problems for the elderly. Article 21 of the Constitution gives every human being the right to live a dignified life, but what can one do when one’s own right becomes an obstacle? Well, it is a great irony of our society that we have become so blind in our desire for sons that we are unable to give the love to our daughters that they actually deserve. Even today in our societyIt is filled with male chauvinist mentality. Even today we consider sons as Kuldeepak, while daughters are considered as someone else’s wealth, but often these same Kuldeepak leave their own father in an old age home. We are the people of the country having the spirit of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. Then how are they becoming so blind in the race of modernity that they are bent upon abandoning their own traditions. Is this modernity, in which we forget to respect our loved ones? Why do we forget that mother brought us into this world by bearing the greatest pain of her life?Has given birth, the father has taught us to walk holding the finger, has made us capable of knowing the difference between right and wrong. Then when they need our support. So how can we turn back? We have to understand what our elders are trying to tell us. Today instead of listening to them, we have started telling our stories. This is the reason why criminal tendencies are increasing in the society in the present times. Today we want to preserve the old buildings, but leave the elders at home helpless and in tears.Are. Only if we give our elderly parents the right to live a respectful life, our present and future will be secure. Otherwise, the way we are making our parents homeless. Tomorrow we will also grow old and our children will also see and learn the same things that we do with our parents today. Have been.
