Duties towards our Parents
Every child must obey and respect their parents. They must obey their teachers and superiors. Why should children obey their parents? Parents nurse their children from their birth. The children are grown up by their care and anxiety. They look into every need of their child, whether it be sleeping, playing or feeding, and furnish the same. Parents teach the children the right and the wrong. So it is their duty to obey their parents.
Those who lose their parents in their childhood are deprived of their care, love and affection. The child cannot express his difficulties to anyone. He is not fed in time, untimely sleeping and many other things which he cannot express to others. The dearth of affection nips in the bud.
All children grow in the care of their parents and get educated to establish in life and society. They hold respectable position in the society. They earn a lot. Many new friends, relatives do gather around them. It is all because they are being nursed by their parents in right earnestness and utmost care.
So it is their utmost duty to look after them in their last days. They are now old and lost all vigours of life. They are now retired. They cannot earn any more. What is their asset now? The children are the asset and they deserve some help from them. They will bear the burden to care and nurse them. In old age, children become the source of inspiration to the parents. Those who neglect these duties is no better than a devil. Therefore, it should be the duty of every child to see that the parents are being looked into and a special attention and care is taken towards them with right earnestness and affection. It is all part of their duty to make them happy and bring peace to them.
