A scenario of the new world. Sons will marry, leave their parents and unite with their wives.....an old system, but it cannot stop them paying some financial help to their old parents in their last days......how heartless we became!

This is pathetic.What to comment? Holding good posts and accademically qualified is useless for them.They are the black sheeps in the society.fortunate sons of unfortunate parents.Life will teach them a good lesson.

This is not a new one. Almost more than fifty per cent is happening now a days. After marriage he will not hear and bother about the parents. He is always worried about his wife and her side and his futher life is depending on his wife only.

The vagaries of a nuclear family....earlier when it was a case of joint families...then values of respect and responsibility were ingrained in children...and they saw examples of this to follow. Now things have changed...its a more materialistic world today...where dog eats dog and man eats man...so parents are only like ladders to climb up in life and make a place for themselves...to be dsicarded in some scrap heap after this utility factor.
How sad...truly heart wrenching...we need to brush up on our societal and familial values again !
