A day at Old age Home

It was a place where senior citizens of rural areas who were being neglected by their own families brought under the roof of a voluntary organisation.The place is Yetapaka,the village adjacent to Bhadrachalam.I have accompanied to our friends Allamraju Kameswara Rao garu and Veedhula Rambabu garu while they were going to the old age home to offer their donations in cash form.There were almost 40 people including septuagenarians and octogenarians.Some were wearily taking rest and some were walking slowly on their errands.Two children were also appeared there and we have come to know that they were children of the cook ,appointed for them.This Manavaseva voluntary organisation has been running with the efforts of Sarojini garu.She said that there was hardly any help from the side of government but the organisation is depended on the donors who could help them in cash and material form.

With the change of family value system in the present society ,it has become a widely seen phenomena in our country.Economic compulsions are also vital in the globalization,who to blame, things might get worse in the coming days as the life expectancy is increasing,lonely elder people who do not have financial support  are in even more pathetic condition.Nobody's problem is everybody's problem.People have to be kind enough and conscious regarding the problems of older generation as they have no pressure groups to move the stance of government's policies.
