Why grandparents are called Grandparents?

Till now, you have been reading about needs of senior citizens, Dementia & Alzheimer’s’ and the importance of volunteers for these citizens too. Now, let us move on to their role as grandparents – The most coveted & marvelous role any human would love to perform!! Just like the young grand children, grandparents too are a bubbly lot of individuals – if they enjoy to be lively & cheerful. Yes, the cheerfulness & enthusiasm of grandparents certainly matters for a robust upbringing of their grand children. Only then can a healthy, nurturing & fruitful relationship be built between these two generations.

According to Seniorindian.com, grandparents play a pivotal role not only in loving & caring for their grandchildren but also for instilling the moral values. They should gradually build a sense of right & wrong in the minds of these young ones for a bright future. Also, the senior citizens play a very major role for an overall grooming of their young counterparts in absence of their parents. Nowadays, both mother & father work in offices for long hours. So, the grandparents really need to step in to care for & provide emotional support to their blossoming grandchildren. The grandparents are believed to be the highly guaranteed source of care & support at home. And, it is indeed heartening for the parents too that their children are growing up amidst the cozy & responsible grandparents.

Along with this, grandparents can play the role of a mediator between their children & grand children about family matters. Especially, any sensitive family matters can be responsibly dealt with by these senior members. Since, grandparents are the most experienced & adept at responsibly raising a family, they can rightfully advise their own children & grandchildren for sorting out any issues. Yet, it should be preferably, a friendly advice too to bond the three generations together against all odds.

Nowadays, though, the grandparents and their grandchildren stay far away from each other. It is really difficult for grandparents to spend time with their grandchildren who reside abroad. So, how should one deal with this? They can meet at occasional get together or exchange letters/ emails to enhance a mutual bonding.  

Yet, for those grandparents who stay with or near their grandchildren, it is easy to bond together. How? There are many effective methods of striking an intergenerational rapport. The grandparents can take their little grand kids to a park, fair, zoo, theme parks or movies. It is a new, unique way for them to relate better with these young ones. It is a sure shot way of mingling & befriending each other to cut through the generation-gap syndrome. Thus, grandparents have a huge role to build and cement the strong relationships among their family & nurture it for the grandchildren. So that the grand kids can successfully maintain such robust family ties in the future as well.

The grandparents are indeed a link to the family’s culture & heritage. Also, their blessings are a must-have & most sought after gift at festive occasions and traditional ceremonies; their presence is indeed highly wanted at auspicious events like marriage, naming ceremony, birth and marriage anniversaries etc. The elders’ blessings are highly necessary before beginning any new initiatives or deciding about important decisions.

So, now you know why grandparents are called Grandparents? Yes, you are right. Since, they play a ‘grand’ role in our life, they are called so. Thus, to sum it all up, let us watch a small video! (Click the link to watch). It has focused the importance, lovely presence & extreme responsibility of a grandparents’ role in human life.

Happy Grandparenting!

माता पिता देवो भवः - मनुभाई जैस्वाल, बांद्रा, मुंबई

मां बाप के घर जब बच्चो का जन्म होता है, तो मां बाप ख़ुशी मे मिठाई बाटते है, और वही बडे होकर मां बाप को बाटते है | आज के पडे लिखे आधुनिक समाज के इस युग मे खडे हुए वृद्धा आश्रम भारतीय संस्कृती के सर पर कलंक है | वृद्धा आश्रम कोई सुखद घटना नही, यह दुखद घटना है | यह आशिर्वाद नही पर श्राप रूप है , शोभा रूप नही पर कलंक रूप है | मां-बाप से जुदा रहते बच्चो के घर मे जुता, चप्पल , झाडू रखने के लिये अलग जगह होती है लेकीन मां-बाप के लिये रहने को जगह नही | जो बच्चे मां-बाप को वृद्धा आश्रम मे बोझं समज कर छोड देते है , उन्हे समाज मे आबरू इज्जदार कहलाने का हक नही है | तुम जो तुम्हारे मां-बाप को वृद्धा आश्रम मे धकेलने का अगर सोचोगे भी तो याद रखो भविष्य मे तुम्हारी औलाद भी तुम्हे घर से बेघर करके वृद्धा आश्रम मे छोड देगी | ये मत भुलो ,कि जैसा करोगे वैसा भुग्तोगे |

Picture courtesy: http://www.shutterstock.com

बच्चे जब छोटे होते है तो मां-बाप बोलना सिखाते है , वही बच्चे बडे होकर मां-बाप को चूप रहना सिखाते है | बच्चो के सुख के लिये मर मिटने कि तय्यारी रखने वाले मां-बाप जब कोई बिमारी को लेकर बिस्तर मे दवा-दारू के इलाज के लिये तडपते होते है तब बच्चो को उनके इलाज के लिये न पैसा होता है न समय होता है | समाज मे अपने आप को आबरूदार  बताने के लिये मंदिर-मस्जिद मे जाकर चंदा लिख्वाते है , असल मे ऐसे बच्चे समाज के लिये कलंक होते है | बचपन से लेकर जवानी तक जिसने तुम्हे पाल पोस्कर बडा किया , बडे होकर तुमने उनका दिल जालाया तो समझो तुम्हारा कर्म हि तुम्हारा भाग्य जलायेगा | श्री राजा दशरथ के जमाने मे श्रवण ने मां-बाप को अपने कर्तव्य के पलने मे बिठाकर तीर्थ यात्रा करवाई थी और तुम बडे होकर मौत कि यात्रा करवाते हो |

तुम्हारे वृद्ध मां-बाप दया पात्र नही ,भक्ती पात्र है | जब तुम्हारे चार-पाच साल का बच्चा तुम्हारा प्रेम चाहता है तो क्या सत्तर या अससी साल के तुम्हारे मां-बाप तुम्हारा प्रेम नही चाहेंगे ? | जरा सोचो, समाज मे जगह-जगह व्यसनमुक्ती व अन्य प्रकार  के शिबीर आयोजन होते है लेकीन मां-बाप के रून(उपकार) मुक्ती के लिये शिबीर क्यू नही लगते ? क्युकी मां-बाप के इस कर्ज का बदला चुकाने के लिये दुनिया कि किसी भी औलाद के बस कि बात नही | जब तुम्हारे पेट मे दर्द होता है तो दर्द को तुम ९ मिनट सह नही सकते और तुम्हारी मां हस्ते हुए ९ महिने का दर्द सहती है | दुख-दर्द मे रोते हुए मां-बाप को एक कोने मे चूप होकर पडे रहो कि सलाह देते हो और मरने के बाद उनकी तस्वीर कि पूजा करते हो | कैसा दुर्भाग्य है हमारे समाज का और कैसी है ये तस्वीर , बच्चो को इन्सान बनाने मे मां-बाप को २० साल लगते है और बच्चो को उन्हे मूर्ख बनाने मे २० मिनट भी नही लगते |

मां-बाप जीवन मे २ बार रोते है जब पहली बार उनकी लडकी शादी करके घर छोडती है और दुसरी बार जब लडका मां-बाप को छोडता है | अपने कर्तव्य के रास्तो को भुले हुए बच्चो को मेरा यह संदेश है , भूतकाल कि भुलो को आज से भूल जाओ, नवे भविष्य का निर्मान करो | माता-पिता कि सेवा एव मान सम्मान करो ,उन्हे तुम्हारा प्रेम दो फिर देखो जमाने का सारा सुख तुम्हारे कदम चुमता है या नही |

  प्रार्थना : हे प्रभू आज जो तुने  मेरे जीवन मे बुरे संजोग  खडे किया है वह मेरे कल्यान के लिये है , तेरे प्रती ऐसी मेरी श्रद्धा अखंड रहे |
