The curse of Education?
I came across http://qz.com/489579/a-long-and-painful-goodbye-to-my-dying-grandparents/
The story in these pics has become a common story across India. Look at any community you will see elderly parents and grand parents living alone. They worked hard to give their kids the best education they possibly could. The whole generation sacrificed their present so that future of theirs kids could be bright. They pushed and kids also worked hard, got educated in good colleges.
Some secured jobs in cities far away from home town, other moved abroad and the parents/grand parents were happy. Their kids were enjoying success. Time passed by. Parents and Grandparents started retiring. Age started catching up. They were left with eternal dilemma whether to move with kids or stay at home town. What would they do whole day. No one knows them in new place. Kids coming back once a year becomes the event that they wait for.
Is this the curse of education?
