Mahendranagar : With the glimpse of International day for older people, we are elucidating the significance of elderly people.Facebook and instagram stories filled with pictures of grandparents, people are conveying the quantity of love they have towards them. Yet, the quality of time with grandparents is missing on the pages of life.
According to the studies,1500 elderly people are living in about 70 organizations registered so far. However the number of elderly people wandering in the roads and temples are out of our sight. Often neglected by family members and the government they spend the rest of their remaining life roaming and wandering from one place to another craving for food.Celebration in social media goes in vain unless we don’t value and respect them at home.
One day won't be enough to praise their existence in our lives unless we are devoted towards their love from the depth of our heart.
Ageing is an inevitable truth of life. The changes mark a decline from one’s peak fertility and psychological functions until death.With increment in the numbers of age, we lose the ability to hear, talk, walk, and analyze properly.
The most precious honour any human can give to another human is respect. Respect of his or her existence and accepting individuals as they are. Older people get weaker with their age and lose their ability and potentiality to work and function as adults do.
They need affection, love and care in a way that doesn’t make them feel inferior or helpless in any way. Rather we should make them feel special by conveying love through the touch of eyes filled with love. Love is the only way to accept one’s arrival on this planet.
Instead of increasing the number of old age homes, let's increase the size of our hearts by opening the arms of love and affection towards our elder members of our family. Rather than keeping their pictures one day as a cover photo on facebook let’s open the book of our lives and cover it with their blessings and love. The most precious relation we could ever hold is with our grandparents. Before we lose them in this physical world we should build a strong spiritual connection with them through love.
As babies, we used to crave for their attention, now the cycle of nature is reversed. They offered us the attention of the universe.As they are craving for our love and care now it's our turn to show them how the love of the universe feels like.
