between the past and the future
a generation gap
now weary shoulders..on which some children had once sat, to see the world
trembling hands, hands that once held children.. as they taught them to walk
parched lips.. that once sang sweet lullabies…which have been silenced
Times have changed
Life has changed
people of my generation will recall..
we were always caught up in relations and ties..
that yielded nothing
Our Father was God
At our mother’s feet lay heaven
And now.. people have become very sensible
The new generation is very clever and practical
For them every relation is like a ladder…which they use to get themselves further
But once they have no further use of this ladder..
along with the other broken furniture in the house…
old vessels, old clothes and newspapers..
they dump them in the attic
However, life is not like a ladder
Life grows like a tree
Parents are not the steps on a ladder
Parents are the soul of one’s life
Regardless of its size and fullness…
a tree can’t stand on its own once its roots are uprooted
With humility and respect, I ask those..children for whose happiness..
a father spent every penny of his hard-earned money with a smile..
those very children, when the father’s eye-sight weakens..
why do they hesitate in giving him light?
If a father can help his son to take the first step in his life..
why can’t a son give his father support when he’s taking..the last few steps of his life
What crime have parents committed, who have devoted their entire life..to their children,
that they live with tears and loneliness?
If they can’t give us any love..
then who gives them the right to snatch our love from us?
Can the parents that God has united in love..
be separated and forced to lead a life of sorrow?
A man has children to live for this?
Children perhaps forget.. that our present will be their future
If we’re old today, they will also grow old someday
The question we ask today, they will ask tomorrow
As for me..please don’t worry about me.
Because if I am capable of bringing up my children..
helping them become able and independent..
then I am capable of taking care of myself too
I don’t expect anything from anyone..
because I am very fortunate.
I am fortunate because..life has given me a companion..
with whom I walk and who has made my path easier
Together with whom my hardships were always overcome
And that companion is my wife
People often fall in love
However, they don’t express it as often as they should
I wouldn’t want to make a mistake like that
Pooja, I love you very much
Thank you for being with me
I exist because you do
And there’s everything if we are together
Else there’s nothing
That’s all I wanted to say
Those children who don’t love their parents..
who don’t give them shelter..
who don’t respect them..
I’d never forgive them
I’d punish them
I’d disown them

1 Timothy 5: 8
But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.
Can you depend on your children or your family when you become aged and need them?
It’s so sad but true that many elderly people are left alone, uncared for and unloved. Unfortunately, many are left to rot in Senior homes or what some like to call “old folks homes.” When us as a society learns to love, care for and respect our elderly, that’s when I will know there is hope in the world and we have grown as a society/humanity.
So please show love and kindness to an elderly person today!
