Do You take care of your parents?

These are the days of old age hommes. More and more parents are pushed there against their will? Is it because of our fast life or sheer betrayal and negligence? don't we have a commitment towards them who yearned for your growth and well being?

I am not surprised of the question though I do not deserve to reply to such a question. My father is no more and my mom who is a drawing a decent pension is on her own. Infact she is taking care of some of my coborns as they are not in good finacial condition. Coming back to the question I know at least In India still people take care of their parents and in many places the joint family system is in vogue. I do not claim it to be a system worth emulating or something lke that.There are problems connected with joint family also. The problems related to in laws and privacy crops up often. However i feel having spend the major part of their life for the children, they deserve a better treatment and consideration. One need to be reminded of the fact that the life cycle repeats, and for a moment just step into their shoes and feel the heat.
