Every year thousands of Indians immigrate to USA aspiring for higher education, remunerative jobs, and better lifestyle. Many of them are spending a lavish life there and some plan to settle there with family. In the process, elderly parents of several such immigrants are by force of circumstances left alone to fend without any physical assistance.
Years of sacrifices, piles of love, bundles of care, and untold hardships of parents is what that backs us to get where we all are in life. Dedicating all their saving for child’s education, taking loans for higher studies and sleepless hours for child’s care is the story of each Indian parent.
“Probably each success story of a child is a great example of hardship and unconditional love of parents who are the winners in true sense. And many loving children are there who never ever forget the self-sacrifice of their parents to look after them with all round care and share.”
Lucky are the parents whose children fulfilled each need over demands of their parents by taking care with over-parenting. But many of us fail to read the untold story of our parent behind their stretched smiles, and jolly faces. Often, we miss the essence of loneliness, unease and fear evoking out of their cheerful talk and earthy hugs. These piles of stories remain untold sinking down inside the huge heart.
Dejected story of parents of non-resident Indians :
Parent, their love, care, and anxiety are the lifetime asset. They may not express but an uncontrolled inner concern is there regarding child’s wellness, safety, progress, and even more. On the other hand, aging plays worst. Because of getting older, daily chores, regular processes, and necessities become a challenge for them. It is even harder for them to shop for daily needs, medicine, hospital work, regular health checkup, standing in queue at banks or for bill payment. And these are the time when parents need their children the most. But they also understand child’s busy schedules, rigid deadlines for work and their own family requirements. Hence, often parents hesitate to share their problems and daily challenges with children who stay thousands of kilometers away from them. And in exigency parents seek helps form neighbours, relatives or friends who might have an unwilling heart to aid each time. Other than their daily needs, an unbearable social loneliness of being left with no friends, no celebrations, no festivals make parents feel their child’s absence even more acutely.
I know, some of NRIs ask parents to come to US and stay with them. A complete unfamiliar environment, lifestyle, culture, foods and families make them feel lonely in crowd. It takes time for parents to get used to with electronic gadgets, machineries and equipment that may be common for you. Moreover, ill health is a big worry for them when there is nobody to attend them as they can’t go to a hospital on their own.
