Treating the senior members of the familyA report shows that the majority of the seniors, who are above sixty, are ill-treated by their kith and kin. In a survey conducted by 'Helpage India' it is seen that about 44% of the sons are not caring or even not treating well their parents. Daughters/sons in-law are doing this ill-treatment in about 63%.
In the centre of New Delhi almost hundred percent are suffering from this ill-treatment. But parents, on their side are seen not complaining. More than 98% have not made any complaint about this.
Though there are laws for protecting the needs and rights of senior citizens, what is happening in the reality is clear from these facts.
