Subject: Increasing number of old age homes in metropolitan cities

Sir

Through the esteemed columns of your newspaper, I would like to draw your kind attention towards the increasing number of old age homes in the the metropolitan cities.

It is very true that old people are not welcomed at their own homes. They do not get proper care and love from their children and grandchildren. They are considered as a burden on them. The children do not realise that they are the ones who had brought them up. They deserve to be respected and loved.

Now-a-days, people are too busy to take care of their own parents. This scenario needs to be changed. Old people should be at their own homes and not in old age homes. People do not have time for their parents and when they think they are becoming burdensome on them, they drop them at the old age homes.

I think the younger generation can stop this practice. They should have the moral values to take care of their grandparents, to love them, to make them feel special. They should spend time with them, it will make them feel good. I shall conclude my letter here and I hope that it would be published in your prestigious newspaper.

Yours sincerely
XYZ
