Beautiful lights and colorful ribbons decorated all the walls of the big living room. Lots of balloons were on the floor. Some light melodious music was put up to accompany the event. There were a lot of gathering all around. Delicious food, different cuisines, so many desserts and a big two tier cake in the center.
On the top of it, there stood digital candles depicting the completion of fifty five years of marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Vikram. They had a single child, a well settled doctor, he was married to a beautiful lady who was a teacher and now they have two little kids-twins, a boy and a girl. So now the couple had got a higher designation of grandparents. As the kids called for them dada-dadi, they always had a big smile on their face. There was joy all around, happiness and only happiness. As the cake ceremony was completed everyone had their dinner and the night was to end. It was 1:00 am and the couple realised that it was time for their children and grandchildren to leave for their home. (Felt shocked? Should be) They weren’t celebrating it at their house.( Where? Some other place) They were at the old age home where they had left their parents five years ago. They had abandoned them and met only at such special dates.
As all left there was sorrow all around. Now only the abandoned parents in the old age home were left. They were their only family left. Now the smile which was spread on their faces like the horizon now shrinked into a fake smile.
Why they had put their whole life in building their child into such a complete person? To see these days?
No, they don’t ask for much but at least they don’t deserve this.
The question is why this had to be done?
I leave a question to all of us,
WAS IT JUSTICE?
