‘Any old people’s home for me?’

July 06, 2013

THIS is with reference to Shahid Ali’s letter (June 26) who sought help regarding old people’s home, and an appreciated response by Irshad Mowjee (June 30).

Meanwhile, I couldn't help the tears when I read Mr Ali's last sentences saying that he is left by his sons and daughters alone in this part of the world merely for greener pastures in the US and Canada.

Not just Mr Ali but more than 70pc senior citizens are deprived of respect, caring, love and affection from their children. Even though, their children do not bother to remind, recognise or recall their memories of how and by whom they were raised, fed and nourished.

I pay tribute and salute Irshad Mowjee for a helpful reply and assisting the lonely old man. He is doing the job that Mr Ali’s children should have done.
