These days young people have to move out from their native places for their jobs. If they have to stay with their parents in the villages, their living will be difficult as they will not have any income. So forcefully they are coming out. Many of the parents don't want to come out of their native place leaving their ancestral houses. In this situation with whom we can find fault.
We are five brothers. We all are away from our native place as we are in different professions. But my father and mother don't want to leave that place as my father got a house constructed there. Till recently they were able to manage on their own. So we used to go there once a month ( at least one of the 5 brothers) and used to spend some time there. But now leaving them alone is not advisable. So we forced them and they went to Visakhapatnam. a city near to my native place and snow staying there with my brother.
Many people migrate within India to major Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Pune, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad etc. and many others to foreign countries like Canada, Australia, UAE, USA etc. Thus primarily, it is a financial requirement to move to other places leaving the parents behind. The children continue to stay with their parents only when they remain jobless and unable to become financially independent.
After having their own children, people start thinking about the future of the rising sun i.e. their own children instead of worrying about their parents who become a setting sun.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

Even this challenging situation would ease
I know some people who joined old age homes on their own and living happily there. For those who can afford it, there are many retirement communities with all facilities available. They get all the comforts and have the company of their age group. The children visit them often and make them happy. This is good for both the elders and youngsters in the family.
