Today’s era is called Kalyug. This era is the fourth and final era in the concept of four yugas. The first three eras came and went, which were Satyuga, Tretayuga, Dwaparyuga. There is a lot happening in Kali Yuga from which this era cannot be called good. Today crimes are increasing, accidents are increasing and the biggest and shocking thing is that children are not taking care of their parents. In olden times, when a son was born, the father used to say, ‘This will be the support of our old age’. Now when a son is born, a thought comes in the mind of the parents that if the son gets older, he will not leave us in the old age home. In today’s time, you will find parents less in their homes and more in old age homes. There are many old age homes in every city where children leave their parents. There are many reasons behind this and today we are going to talk about those reasons.
Wife – It is heard in many stories that the son was thrown out of the house by the son only because the daughter-in-law was in trouble. The daughter-in-law is the one who makes the son to leave her parents in the old age home. The mother who tied him in his stomach for 9 months and then cared for him when he came into the world, raised him, fulfilled his every wish, did not sleep for him overnight. How can a son forget all this and forget his mother for this wife. The father who performed his responsibilities and sacrificed all his life for his son. For the son, the father worked in the office at night, worked during the day, strangled his desires, sent the son abroad, taught him and gave him what he asked for, but what did the son do against these sacrifices. …? Removes father from home. How can someone be so ruthless. This is a serious matter, never think about it.
Changing mindset – Today’s children can be born in middle class or poor family, but their thinking is very hi-fi. His dreams are quite rich. Due to this, children do not attach any importance to their parents. Children begin to think of their hardworking parents as laborers. They sometimes make them servants after they grow up and get all their household work done by them. In old age in which children should become the support of parents, they leave them alone. The parents earned money and sent their child to study abroad, but the child completely changed after coming from there. He feels that his parents do not deserve him, where he is of high order and his parents are of middle class thinking. They feel that if we took our parents to malls, cinema halls, parties, pubs, restaurants and if they did not come to eat, roam, speak in a manner, we would get insulted. Today, children’s thinking is changing and for this reason, many times they expel their parents from home.
Willpower – This is also the main reason. These stories are seen not only in small, poor houses but also in big houses. Parents can also be seen splitting. In wealthy households, sons live together until the will is written and attach great importance to their parents, but as soon as the will is divided equally among all, a fight ensues. All the children refuse to keep their parents and in the end, it is decided to leave them in the old age home. These stories sometimes make the heart tremble.
Do not give time to children- The biggest reason is not to give proper time to children. Today, parents are somewhere behind in giving time to their children. All are running after money, all have to earn. Due to earning more and more money, parents are unable to give time to their children. Nowadays parents do not even give time to each other. Divorce is increasing day by day which is wrong. In today’s age, if the children cry, they are given a mobile phone to calm them down. If children want to play, they are also given mobile. Today, young children have mobiles and to get rid of them, parents have them recharge the net in their mobiles so that they stay busy. After giving the mobile, the parents do not even see what the child is watching and doing. If the child is taught from childhood that his parents are important to him, perhaps his parents will be most important to the children. From childhood, parents should have the habit of touching the feet of the elders so that they treat the parents like God and never forget them.
Need to learn from religious stories- You must have read, heard or seen the story of Shravan Kumar. A son who became the support of his parents in old age. In his old age, Shravan Kumar made his parents sit in two baskets and, with the help of a stick, hung them on his shoulder and set out for the pilgrimage. Saints like Shravan Kumar are rarely seen in this era. You must have heard of Lord Shri Ram. He became an obedient son who abandoned the entire kingdom at the behest of his father and set out for exile. Krishna who killed Kansa to free his parents from captivity, but he did not forget P.
