PART 1: A Short Story
Read to know if it resonates with yours, although we hope it doesn’t!
STAGE 1: THE GOOD TIMES
There was a time when the concept of Joint Families was widely seen in every household. Grandparents and Grandchildren used to have that PERFECT bond which was mutually beneficial –
The Grandchildren learned about the world from the eyes of an experienced soul. Whereas the Grandparents used to find their companions in those little kids and would spend hours cuddling with the little ones and looking after them…And Time passed by peacefully……
STAGE 2: TRANSITION
A Period came when the world started getting driven into the fangs of the concept of NUCLEAR FAMILIES: Privacy became the new Trend…!
The new couples found their old parents misfit in their hectic Corporate Lifestyles. The parents, who once devoted their days and hours nursing their apple-of-the-eye kids, now seemed a burden to those “Ultra Busy” professional Children.
On the other side, the parents started realizing the coldness and bitterness in their relationship with their Children and that their presence is no longer needed in the family.
The conversations started becoming rough, as did the environment of “once sweet, now bitter” homes…
But who was to be blamed..?
Each side had its reasons backed by logic and substantial grounds, but the other side didn’t seem to care nor understand.
STAGE 3: THE FINAL STAGE
Loneliness and Depression slowly crept into the lives of the Senile Parents.
- The Frustration of losing their Physical Strength…
- The Regret mixed with Resentment due to the bitterness in their bonds with Children…
- The deteriorating mental & physical health due to negligence of extremely overburdened children…
- The pain & anxiety as a result of loneliness…
In worst cases, the parents were forced to move away from the lives of the children……They waited…and waited…and waited…But the kids never showed up!
Things started getting worse as time passed, finally ending into the most horrifying day in the life of any living being…
