Together with me: Be a better Son


Together with me: Be a better Son

I think the problem is hidden deep inside us. We have started giving value to money more than our relations. Few years back relations were alive, but in this era I can only see the value of wealthy relations.

Together with me: Be a better Son

It’s cold and foggy outside. I was trying to enjoy this weather with my friends, sipping a cup of hot coffee. Suddenly, I saw a footage on the TV in which a son was dragging his mother to the terrace of his apartment. I am horrified to see the expressions of this so called son who is a professor. Actually I don’t want to think about his mental state right now. I think only a sick person can behave like this.

I am a son and it makes me crazy when I think about the whole incident. His mother was a patient and bed ridden due to brain haemorrhage.

This is not merely an incident for me and the purpose of raising this issue is not only making you all aware of the facts but to accept the reality of today’s social structure.

I am only 21 and in spite of all obstacles my mother has raised me very well. But when some other boy does this with his parents, I feel a moral responsibility on my shoulders to show the good side of a son who has been raised by a single parent. Its not about any particular person, its about all of us.

I think the problem is hidden deep inside us. We have started giving value to money more than our relations. Few years back relations were alive, but in this era I can only see the value of wealthy relations.

Our human values are going down. Our neighbour Dr. Singh once told me that his parents are living alone in his hometown. He sends large amount of money to his parents every month. He asked me about my future plans and wanted to know about my choice of life. That day I could not answer him because of some confusion.

I know I have not studied in Oxford or Harvard Universities and I will manage my life like an average Indian boy who works to improve his life style. But one thing is clear after watching this whole cruel episode that I will always be a good human being. I don’t want to be called selfish or self centered.

How can a son throw his mother from rooftop just to get rid of her?

It’s a complete failure of our social structure. Old generations blame us to be more mechanical but can anyone tell us what they have taught us. My mother has taught me to value relationships and because of us she accepted a less glamourous life. If she had ignored us, we would have turned into robots who work to earn money only. Young generation blindly follow old generations.

I will not disappoint her for making me a good human being. I hope others understand this and be a better son together with me.
