Step up and Give a Poor Elderly a Life of Dignity

By the age of 66 and I came by myself to SERUDS Old Age Home. I am now 75 years old. It has been 9 years since I was in the ashram. Occasionally my family come here, to meet me. But they never invited me to come home with them any day. It is hard for me to have to stay away from my home, but the affection and love shown to me by those who are with me in this Old Age Home has made them my family members. With my past experience, I am sure I cannot live happily with my sons and daughter.

My name is Kummari Lakshmamma. I got married at the age of twenty in Roddipalle , Kurnool district. We had four sons and one daughter. My husband and I used to work on a farm in our village and make a living.  One day, a tragedy happened our eldest son was bitten by a snake while playing and died on the way to the hospital. After four years, my third son also died in a road accident.

My husband bought a three acre farm. In due course, all our children got married.  One day my husband fell down when he was working on the farm. In the hospital, Doctors  said it was cancer. After five years my husband died. Two years after my husband died, my youngest son had a heart attack and died. Since then I have been living with my youngest daughter-in-law [widowed] and children, but it has become difficult to live on the earnings of the daughter-in-law .

I do not have the energy to work and earn and I have BP, I have diabetes and cannot see clearly. My youngest daughter -in law can feed me but she does not have the money to spend on my health . Then my second son came to me and said if I  transfer the farm to his name, he would look after me.

I believed him and wrote the farm deed in his name. I was taken care of, for a year. But later he started neglecting me and did not buy medicines in time.
