Family throws granny on garbage heap

A weak, ill, 75-year-old woman was found lying on a heap of rotting garbage in Erode, Tamil Nadu, on Sunday morning. She told her rescuers she had been thrown there by her daughter and grandsons who wanted to get rid of her.

A local couple, Periaswamy and Mohanasundari, found the semi-paralyzed Chinnammal Palaniappan. She told them she had been living with the family of the youngest of her three daughters, who would quarrel incessantly over who should take care of their infirm mother. On Saturday night, Sarasa, the daughter, allegedly told her two sons to take their grandmother to a spot from where she could never return. The boys bundled Chinnammal into an autorickshaw and threw her on the dump.

"She never complained about her family's behaviour, only rued the fact that she couldn't move without help," Mohanasundari said. The couple took Chinnammal to the office of Jayabharath, a social organization, who on Wednesday informed the government.

Social Welfare Minister Dr Poongothai expressed outrage. "I have asked the collector to take adequate care of the old lady, and take legal action against the children," she said. But the family hasn't been traced. "The lady can't tell us the address," KM Murgesan of Jayabharath said

 

 

is this how we treat our elders.. its India..the only place wher elders are like gods..where they are respected rather were respected...

wher are our sanskars?even at list they should have put her in a home but No they had to throw her out like trash..

 

 

How could they do that to their motherAngry

I wont generalize like you did about the respect for elders.. This is so skewed an incident I think it should be treated some kind of criminal offence and forgotten you cant draw conclusions based on this.. Most heinous crimes or incidences happen in most extreme circumstances...

  Please lets keep this India and Non-India part away from the discusion.Smile

  Infact what we can generalise is such acts happen everywhere. And it should not be forgotten Qwerty. It should be treated as a criminal offence as you said and showed as an example to others so that they may think twice before doing the same. Don't think if even that will stop the problem 100% but some may atleast think wice before doing such an act.
