Please pick up that phone and call your parents.Many of us stay away from our parents for various reasons ( studying, travelling on work, living separately after marriage, abroad on a stint). The daily hectic life means that we leave early and come back late. In between some of us have time but do not use it wisely. So we drift apart slowly and find that a non existent wall has come up.
At times of major festivals like Diwali, birthdays or any day, call our elderly parents gives them that immense joy in their rather predictable retired life in their native places. Many of them wait to hear the voice of us, their grandchildren and a surprise visit makes their faces radiant.
So, if you are staying away, Please pick up that phone and call your parents.
