During the primetime slot of life, man raises a family, have children to bring them up with the hope that children will look him after and care during his twilight years after superannuation from the active phase of life. There are many a lucky instance where things turn out as expected, but it is a matter of great pity even if a few unlucky ones surface in the world who feel insecure and are cast away by their own children. Really, it is disheartening if the children of even one in a hundred leave their old and infirm parents uncared, sever them away, or throw them out of the house, which is his. Really, it is too touchy.

Old people staying away from their own homes, cut away from their own children and grand children or left all to them to lead their lives in old age homes is not a very happy and sustainable practice in India. The practice of living away from the younger generation is prevalent in the economically advanced West like European and American countries. In the west, it is affordably a way of life or fashion. They could do so because their per capita wealth has built up so robust over centuries through their enterprises and expeditions launched on the global scale. Therefore, the story is very different there, which is not disheartening or unhappy for them. It may not be very disheartening if old parents are living in old age homes paying their share of expense bills. Two generations never stay under one roof as per the rich economic traditions of the West.

In India also, the practice of living separately for the reason of physical convenience and comfort is prevalent among the rich. The concept of nuclear family is a byproduct of the same lifestyle of the rich. If the same tradition is thrust upon economically weak Indians, who have been inured to poverty for generations and whose per capita wealth is too puny to cope with such a tradition; what a bizarre compulsion for the Indian poor! In the circumstance, the invading practice of the West to live cut away their near and dear ones in the old age is to be deplored. In India, not two, but even three generations stay and live together happily and gainfully. This tradition has sustained Indians amid a highly intemperate adversity of sorts for millenniums.

Seeing the undue invasion of the Western culture on the Indian old, HCC is moved and feels concerned about the woes of such ones who have none in the world to look them after in the fag end of life.

The problems of the old in that situation are of two types, namely, one, related to their physical needs such as, food, shelter, clothing, medicine and the journey to the heavenly abode of permanent peace and, two, related to emotion. In the Home for the Aged put up and run by HCC, all the physical needs of the inmates of Home are met with and managed well entirely free of charges. However, they could compensate for their emotional void through mutual link of love and camaraderie by mixing up and sharing their sweet memories with other inmates of the Home.

HCC is already running one such Home for the Aged in Uttarakhand and getting poised to start a chain of such Homes for the Aged dispersed allover in India. The facilities made available to the inmates of the Home are world class. For the present, it is run  free of charges, whatever. In future also, it will be run free, as per the present designs of the promoter-cum-donors.
