Yesterday was a memorable day. My family paid a visit to the Lovely Nursing Home in PJ. We reached there at about 12.10pm. As soon as we reached, we were greeted by few of the residents in the Home. My children shyly shook hands with them. My nephews were a little uncertain on how to react, this is their first time coming to such a home. After we have exchanged greetings, we started to serve lunch. We arranged the lunch and the menu was Egg Kurma, Cabbage stir fry, Long Beans stir fry, Soya Taufu Sambal and Pampadam. My daughters insisted to serve, so I and my hubby had to assist them and many of the elders said Nandri Amma, a gesture to show their appreciation means Thank you Mother. I had to hold back my tears………..

Lovely Nursing Home house about 60 of them, and 10 of them are children. They are elders who are disable and had to use the wheel chair and some are just too old to be bothered with what was happening around them, many have to be fed as they are unable to care for themselves. Out of the 10 children only 2 are schooling as the balance does not have their birth certificate. These children are taught by the tutors that come to the home. There are 5 helpers in the home to take of this resident.

We left for home after about 1 hour. My children had many questions on why are they at the home, where are there parents of these children and etc…….. on our way back. I tried my level best to answer their curiosity.
I went home hoping my children will never forget this day knowing that there are people out there lack of love and other necessities in their live and will grow up appreciating what they have and learn to give more rather than ask. As for me, I remembered Swami Vivekananda’s quote, This is the gist of all worship – to be pure and to do good to others. He who sees Siva in the poor, in the weak, and in the diseased, really worships Siva; and if he see Siva only in the image, his worship is but preliminary.

Below are some pictures at the home. My daughter is in the third picture...
