Yes, Parents are two the people who spent most of their lives, their earnings, their quality time on the kids. They deserve to be looked after in their old age. Most parents whould be self reliant financially, what they need is the kid's quality time with them.

Yes, this is vital duty of children to look after parents and to keep them smile, happy and in peace. If parent do not bless their child - no one will go to heaven. But at modern age I see after marriage children is looking after wife and wife's relative more than parent.
