Self Realisation

a poem by Subir Chowdhury

One day we all will grow old,
Our youth, vigour and vision
will come to an ebb.
So do not neglect aged people in your home,
Help them and give them company
to the extent possible.

Keep your old parents with you,
They are helpless and seek your support.
Do not send them to old age homes
You are part of them
As your children are part of you.

Parents are Living God.
Their blessings will lead you
and your family to prosperity
and protect you from all evil.

Your children are watching all your habits.
They talk to their grandparents regarding
their activities, food and clothes.
One day you will grow to grandparent
and may have to depend on your children.
