The ignored jewels of Modern familiesMany of us fancy life in the metros, a lavish life style, a trendy apartment, acquiring wealth and a neat trim nuclear family. In the bargain we tend to forget about our own origins. But for them, we never would have never had a life, forget the fancy apartment and the riches. Yes, our parents, the ignored jewels in some families.
In this materialistic world, the attention, love and respect given to the elderly parents is slowly diminishing. The real jewels of any family have unfortunately become the Ignored jewels of the family.
They may be old, they may be out of place in our current trendy life but they are full of love, wisdom, knowledge and want nothing in return expect to see how their children and grandchildren and living a healthy and happy life. These old jewels, hide their pain and tears, put up a brave face and defend their errant children who have just ignored them.
It's time we pick up these jewels home, shower them with love and affection that we have all received from them, give them their shine(honor) back so that they can radiate and twinkle brightly even in the twilight of their lives.
Let's make a conscious effort to restore these priceless Ignored Jewels back to Crown Jewels irrespective of our modern tag.
