The height of human compassion, this!!I recently read this from a special issue of a famous Tamil Newspaper,where such real life stories are published. The aim is to make the reader understand that everything is not lost.
However, am just repeating what has been written. It has to be true, judging from the sincerity of the writer. We all know that the old people are never cared for. Most of them live in old age homes, even in the small cities. The report talks about the 60th birthday of a man's parents, when the parents were known to be dead and gone long ago. Puzzled, the writer had gone to the function.
It was here that the entire positive story unfolded. The environment is not mentioned, but it does seem rural. The grandparents were very unhappy that they could not play with grandfather or grandmother. So, the couple went on to literally adopt an elderly husband and wife as parents of the man and they lived in the same house. When the grandfather turned 60, the function happened.
Seems straight from some Tamil movie!! However, we need this kind of human compassion everywhere. Have members had similar experiences? Have you seen this sort of happen in any family known to you?
