We have lost empathy towards old citizens

Today’s world is driven by commercialization, where people are becoming more and more self-centered. There is no time left in people’s schedules for empathy, care and concern.
In addition, with an increasing number of Indians shifting to foreign lands, there has been a phenomenon of growing distance (both physical and emotional) between the younger and the older generations.
There is no empathy left in the hearts of children today towards old citizens because families have become more nuclear in nature. In the past, joint families used to exist, which led to people of different generations living under one roof, with the cultivation of social values.
In a fast-paced lifestyle that we lead today, it has become difficult to manage time between work and family. And there are no strong bonds between families today, which is why we see the lack of empathy towards old citizens. 
When travelling in buses or intra-city trains, we do not give up our seats for the elderly. We have become more concerned about our welfare, safety and comfort that we have stopped taking into account the welfare of others.
Old citizens are seen as a burden to the younger population. Today, we see old citizens staying alone or in nursing homes because their children do not have the time for them. We are unable to feel the pain and suffering they go through and keep their emotions at bay.
The younger generation has become materialistic, only thinking about physical gains and entertainment. We often forget the hardship our parents had to endure to bring us up, and we take their existence, love and support for granted.
In Bangalore, the International Day of Older Persons is celebrated every year on October 1 to cultivate empathy, love and concern towards the older generation. The SSMRV College in Bangalore actively participates in bridging the gap between the older and younger generations, and this is what the entire nation should follow. In fact, we should show love for older citizens all year round instead of compressing all the love into one day – 1st October.
The 21st century has seen a shift in importance from intangible goods to tangible goods. Now, it is time to show gratitude to the older generation by setting aside some of our valuable time for their happiness. 
We ought to remember that we wouldn’t be who we are without their support. So, the least we can do as a gesture of gratitude is to show empathy towards them.
