I met this person at Shahdara metro station today. His age is 70years and he makes a living selling toys for small kids. He said “beta knees pain boht zaada rehta hai. Jitni zaada derr yahan baith bhi nhi paata khadaa bhi nhi reh paata. Thodi der k liye aata hun geeta colony se. Jitne 50-100 rs. kama leta hu guzaara ho jata hai”.
(My knee pains a lot so I cannot sit or stand for long hours. I come from Geeta colony, sit for a short while and earn Rs.50 – Rs.100)
I feel sad about what he had to say. He has 3 sons and 2 daughters. All have their own families. But they don’t have time for their father. He is the one who made his children what they are today.
All I want to ask is that what is wrong with people these days.? They have time for everything in the world but no time for their parents.
Just a small message from my side to all such people is that your future is decided on deeds you perform in the present.
When your kids grow up, its 100% possible that they’ll leave you too because this is what they have seen since their childhood. This is what you are teaching your children. Change your attitude towards your parents in order to have a safer future.
Give love. Get love.”
