In India, parents are considered as next to God. Here, people respect their parents so much that they consider it a sin to disobey them.
Indian parents expect their children to look after them in old age. When their son gets married, they are overjoyed by the arrival of the daughter in law, feeling more secure and comfortable.
Most of the Indian families take good care of their elders but unfortunately there are people who treat their parents as liabilities making them feel neglected.
Dr.K Tabassum who is working as faculty in St Anns College raises her voice against the rapid growth of Adult Care homes. she works for the betterment of the society through her students in teaching them the Human Values which are being irretrievable these days.
We are given life and bought up with all the possible comforts arranged by our parents but,due to the busy schedule or unhealthy relationship between family members . They are shifted to Adult care homes, It’s not an easy decision for the parents. But, they have to move to these houses when they can no longer tolerate the insult or they are told by their stone-hearted children to leave the house.
Tabassum says she is inspired by Mother Teresa in serving the underprivileged and also says that we should first prove ourselves with our own talent so that we can raise a small hope for the coming generations to succeed in their life.
Moreover she strongly says that the implementation of Ethical Values led to the transformation of present society into a better society.
People must realize their responsibility towards the parents who need physical and emotional support in the late years of their life.
