the me myself and mine syndrome

Am worried about the selfishness that is rampant in the society today----- the ME MYSELF MINE syndrome. Especially the huge number of old age homes that r sprouting all over the country today.
Of course it wld be very different in other countries I suppose. But in India this is a trend towards the worse.
People here r used to living in joint families. If not anybody else, atleast the parents stay in the son's house. Today people regard their own parents as a burden.
Are they not being used and thrown away and of course everybody has a damn excuse to do the same. How disgusting can it ever get? And can such sons be trusted in other relationships? What happens to their children, if at all they r selfless enough to have any? And their intelligent wives who r the reason most of the time......how long wld it take for such sons to even divorce them? THINK OVER.
Another fashion is to work abroad to earn money for their wife and children??? R they not their parents' children? Then why have they been sent to old age homes or to the care of servants ? IS IT FOR THE SIN OF BEARING THEM AND MAKING THEM INTO FULLY GROWN INDIVIDUALS..... BRAINLESS and HEARTLESS THOUGH ?????

  • Not every son/daughter are like you mentioned,almost all of my friends i have known love their parents very much.

    This is just a passing cloud,Joint families might have split but this cannot be split further...this are called nuclear families...and nucleaus cannot be split further.

    Hope this trend would not continue and wide spread.Anyways appreciate your concern.

  • Loving the parents is one thing - sacrificing certain things to do their duties is yet another thing. I definitely dont intend to say that the whole lot is the same but the majority is doing it and even the remaining left in the country wants no interference in their lives and as 'It's My Life.'
    There r exceptions and i bow down to them and congratulate them on being humane Humans!
