The old man who is seen in the film is named Halima, aged 95 years. There are 5 daughters and two sons of her. All of them have got married, She stay with the boys.Her husband has died many more days ago.She has nothing for her own. Her sons are all day laborers, their income does not leave their families. So this old woman can not think of anything except her own death. She wants her to die suddenly, because she knows her sons does not have the ability to treat her if she gets sick.
I do not know whether the old woman is still alive. The above description is Halima Begum. But there are many other such old people who are fighting with life in the absence of money only. Since I am a nursing profession, I get many such patients every day. These elderly people are neglected from family. It is not unusual for a prosperous country like Bangladesh.Last week I explored an elderly man who was in the Medicine ward, suffering from Anaemia and his condition was so bad that he had to give Hart'sman Solution.Doctor suggested his family members to eat nutritious foods. But he said that his eldest son could not do this and he would keep this old man in old age monastery. We tried a lot to convince his eldest son, but he said his father would die in a few days and so he I do not want to spend any money. I was very shocked that day.
I do not want to repeat any such incident, and I do not have the ability to carry the necessary needs or medical expenses . So I want these poor old people to be well supported for the rest of the days. I have a plan, if I have enough support, we will build an organization, whose main goal will be- provide best support to the old age people.
