Quite an interesting topic to discuss about the last days of life on earthMy dear Fellow ISCian,
This is quite an interesting topic to discuss. There is an old couple staying in my neighbourhood. They have lost their only son, and their DIL is with her parents. At times, they discuss interesting things. One such interesting thing that was discussed today is - Who should leave the earth first? Should the husband or the wife?
The old gentleman says," I want you to leave the earth first, because I do not wish you to suffer without me. You will have tough days without me. There will be no one to care you"
The old lady says," No Darling, I want you to leave the earth first, because I do not wish you to suffer without me in your old age. How will you manage to do things. Who will cook for you?"
The old man says,"I am a pensioner, I will live with my pension until death. I will employ someone to care me."
The old lady says,"If you die before me, I will get family pension. I will manage rest of my life with that pension. I will also employ someone to care me."
Now let us discuss - Presume the oldman was not a pensioner, and the old lady is not likely to get any family pension. And no one to care them. They will be left alone.
In such a state, what would be ideal - Who should leave the earth first, the old man or the old lady? And why?
