  1. Every word of the article needs to be read with concern and should make the younger generations think of a workable solution… Perhaps the only expectation of elders in majority cases is some interaction and a feeling of togetherness from their children…

    People advocate senior citizens to practice “Attachment in detachment”, which is almost impossible to implement, because both are contradictory to each other… While this is not a pessimistic approach, one can only feel that reconciling with prevailing situation is the only solution…

  2. It is true.. children r going to fetch jobs to faraway cities and countries.. so they r enable to take care of their parents in their old age.. in that age only parents need support.. the govt r society should take care of senior citizens.. who parted from their childern
