    Mami nice to see you here after a long time. Awesome poem worth reading. True we have to count our blessings. We should be positive and try to be active in old age. Have faith in God and he will guide us

    Dear PS ma'am,

    Read this as soon as you posted yesterday- had to rush out, duty called so responding first thing in the morning :)

    It is all perspective, I agree. But still age is still just a number. It is amazing that you could simply put your thoughts like this in a poem! See, age is just a number.

    Hope read more pearls from you. Regards

    Thank you Mr Thyagarajan for liking and posting comments. Only those who cross seventies and eighties can understand old age problems or those who have old age parents and watch them facing these problems.

    Of course I am grateful to God Almighty for how I am carrying on myself independently without becoming a burden on others.

    Dear Sabitha,
    Once I told my son that due to diminishing memory I might fall prey to dementia and he told me as I am active psychically and mentally I won’t fall prey to dementia.

    :hello:Madam sister, you are absolutely on dot.

    2. At 68 With spouse son & daughter, I handled my dad and mom. Dad 99+ and mom 88+. Mom broke her hip socket joint and in icu while dad was ok for his age nearing a century.

    3. A read of narration in the link below would help understand gravity of situation that one encounters in such a scenario:

    Spouse & I With Dad - A Surgical Operation

    Thanks and Regards.
    God Bless.

    Walking through a dark alley, one would mutter the invocation-prayer to Hanuman to get one through.

    The desire to skip a phase of life with incapacity before death is universal. Talk of "old age is just a number" is ....well...
    Those who depart without the suffering of incapacity are indeed blessed.
