We all have experienced the shift towards nuclear families and the increasing intake in old age homes. It is so disappointing to see things going wrong to such an extent that people send their parents to old age home.They forget that these are the people who are solely responsible for their success and achievements.Had their parents not believed in them,they would not have been anything.Still,people prioritize living away from home and we all are familiar how the term 'putting up' is used for staying. It is a sorry state of affairs. Little do we realize the plight of those old people and how much stressed out and psychologically weak they had become due to being disowned. What can be the contributory factors?
