Their Present can be Our Future..........

Well everybody knows today's scenario. What all the horrible conditions our grandparents facing, we all know. When we need our grandparents for help, we say Dadu you are so sweet please do this please do that. But when it comes to us, we easily escape from our duty. If they do their best for our better living then why can’t we help them? Earlier there was no law against the children who treat rudely or badly with their grand parents. But today situation is different. Today the sons and daughters who ill-treat their old parents or fail to provide for their needs would not get away lightly any longer. Now the judiciary has taken an important step towards welfare of grand parents. The Act declares their rights under the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, especially so when their number is growing rapidly and if a judicial officer heading the concerned court (tribunal) finds that the children or relatives neglecting or refusing to take care or of old people in the family, then the court can directed them to pay maintenance up to Rs 10,000 per month in addition to be being penalized by a fine of Rs 5,000 and also a jail term of three months.
The Law says, "Parents or senior citizens who are unable to maintain themselves through their earnings or out of their own property may apply for maintenance from their adult children or relatives. The maintenance includes the provision for proper food, shelter, clothing and medical treatment."
So these laws must be followed by the parents. If they will not follow and will ill treat their parents then it’s for sure that in future they will also live the same life or i can say more hectic and painful life.
