After throwing light on several social issues on his show ‘Satyamev Jayate’, Aamir Khan spoke about how Indians have started disowning their ageing parents in the eleventh episode. For a country that boasts of its culture and where children pay obeisance to the leaders, disowning and abusing aging parents has become a vogue of sorts among different sections of the Indian society. The recent episode of the show highlighted cases of abandoned parents, who seek refuge in old age homes in the last days of their lives. The show began with a video clip of an old widow, who was literally thrown out of her house by her own son and who refused to open the door for her. After standing outside for several hours, the old lady sought help from neighbours and the police, who then helped her enter her own house. The show brought to light several such stories of helpless parents who have had to face humiliation at the hands of their own children. A number of social activists also graced the show and shared their experiences with the audiences present. One of the activists spoke about the influence of economics on old age and the ever-increasing average age of humans in the present times. Another activist asserted the need to have more day care centres in the city where senior citizens can spend their time. The show also cited examples of an organisation in Ahemadabad, which facilitates live-in relationship for old couples. Marrying in old age for companionship was also given a lot of emphasis on the show. - Zee news Bureau Today's Paper Front Page Back Page Editorial Post Editorial Commentary News Analysis City Football Cricket District Media Drama Movie Art and Culture Campus Chronicle Environment ICT Horizon Literature International Focus on Chittagong Shopping Fashion & Beauty Food and Drink Health OP-ED Women Law and Justice Readers’ Forum Share Market New Nation Supplement Govt.
