ARE WE KIND or SPIRITUAL ENOUGH TO CARE our ELDERS ??

ADESH ADESH!!!!!!
THE OLD AGE HOMES ARE INCREASING DAY BY DAY.. IT WAS NEVER THE PREFERABLE CONDITION IN OUR CULTURAL SET UP. WE DO HAVE 15 DAYS SPCIALLY DEDIACTED TO PITRAS (ANCESTORS).. BUT HOW AND WHAT WE DO TO OLD PARENTS??? VERY GRUESOME QUESTION?
The life of elders in the present age is full of problems, both for themselves and for the children. The fortunate few depart with satisfaction and peace of mind, while others leave with an unhappy state of mind. Meanwhile, the OLD AGE HOMES have come to be a part of our social system. WE NOW CANNOT IGNORE THIS FACT
According to UN estimates, the aged population in the world is expected to touch 22 per cent by 2050. In 2006, the aged constituted 11 per cent of the world population WILL BE 20 per cent by 2026.
As the leading newspaper THE GUARDIAN says.....people in the UK aged 85 or older who require round-the-clock help to eat, dress, wash and go to the toilet will almost double over the next 20 years, research has suggested, highlighting the explosion in social care needs.
The study said health and social care services must adapt to the unprecedented needs of an older population with complex care needs, and warned the state should not rely on family carers as a sustainable solution to the problem. more than 1 million people aged 65 or over will require intensive social care assistance by 2035, up from 783,000 in 2015, it predicted, with increasing numbers of people living into old age with multiple long-term conditions.
Its is hard fact that we are logically spiritual and kind hearted but practically we don’t comply to our thinking. We are meditating our body and mind to make us more aware about our soul. The idea of doing meditation must be more to involve ourselves as soul not at macro level but with minuteness. What may be our religious faith but methodology is approximately similar.
If we are saying regretfully that we couldnot be so kind it may be a refelection of the idea that we are defying the basic principle of life i.e. KINDNESS AT HEART
