In this situation, I was left alone under 'House Arrest' to take care of a young lady aged 84 years. She didn’t understand neither English nor Hindi but only Tami, her mother tongue. Imagine how I was managing the show . She preferred Rice / Non-veg or noodels while I am a big zero in cooking.
These days, for want of an attendant, I could only visit my home once a month or so when my wife or son relieve me. On Sundays my son delivers Milk Packets / 6 Chapattis, which I am manage for 2/ 3 days.
We are located on the outskirts of Gurgaon and thus face great difficulty to manage the general provision. We have to manage within our stock till it is replenished by a visitor / family member. Indeed my wife, my son and daughter all support me.
Due to lack of proper conveyance, inmates come and stay for 4/5 days or a week. But under the prevailing circumstance I am unable to move out of the Home. Indeed, believe me or not I am having a sour taste of 'House Arrest' though it has made my faith more stronger and patience. My personal computer is my only company.
Our own Society Members don't come forward to help knowingly, and I am left at the mercy of the Lord. This bad period is the Will of the Lord since certainly HE has a better Plan for us by guiding good inmates, and attendants for us.
Certainly, I now know the feeling how a King / President / Prime Minister / Political Leader is kept under House Arrest, and the problems faced by him / her during such mental torture. Your own people, friends deceive you in the difficult days - is the gist of the story.
May we request you to kindly pray for our Old Age Home – HOPE - so that we succeed in our effort to serve the needy . Your Sincere Prayer is indeed the need of the hour .Kindly visit : www.hopeseniorcitizen.com.
