Most people in this stage of life with depression have been experiencing episodes of the illness during much of their lives. People believe that mental disorders are rare and “happen to someone else." In fact, mental disorders are common and widespread. They need care from their own family members but in this world, the respect, love and care words are diminishing. People forget that they will also reach at this stage one day and we must remember an idiom “As you sow, so shall you reap” Youngsters also do not care for elderly people. I pray almighty, for a better life for all the elderly people. I took this shot from a rural village.
This shot was taken when I was inside a car. The glass pane was clear and I could able to take this shot without disturbing him. His facial expression was painful. I inquired about him and came to know that he is suffering from mental illness and neglected by their family members. I thought to tell about this to my JPG friends and Society.
In the story The elderly are neglected and "forgotten".
