468. A Unique Wish..

74 Comments

Have never stayed in a hostel ever, nor in college as well,..

did my studies all through, as a day scholar, from home itself..!!

But used to listen, still now hear, lots of hostel experiences,..

from friends and acquaintances, about their life in their hostels..!!

How they enjoyed their daily life, away from family, along with friends,..

how they learnt, how to deal, alone in life, from hostel life..!!

Everytime I listen to them, I miss, I dream, of enjoying life, staying in a hostel,..

but as of now, there’s no scope left, other than an old age home, for my wish fulfillment..!!

So, acquiring the courage, one day, very earnestly, I pleaded my son,..

that, once I’m old, not to worry, but to drop me in a good old age home..!!

Neither with any bitter feelings, nor any grudges or complaints within, did I request,..

to let me, enjoy my life, my way, for the first time in life, guardian less..!!

Chatting, all of us, with bifocals, with various types of people, mostly with dentures,..

some with hearing aids, some with walking sticks or with pace makers..!!

Where, our problems, same, complaints, the same, sharing the same doctors,..

to feel young, free and active, whilst feeling each other’s pain, quite a bit better..!!

Staying within a family of young people around, may make one feel more sick and old,..

but staying among the same age group, may make one feel, quite a bit bold..!!

This, being the crazy way to stay less lonely, in a crowd of same frame of people,..

at least, won’t stay deprived anymore, of fulfilling my dream of living in a hostel..!!

  9. Hostel life is neither good nor bad. It depends on mental makeup, and willingness to adjust. Old age home is not a bad idea for the independent and strong willed. Provided the place is of good quality and really takes care when an inmate is unwell.

  22. Hilarious Debby, I haven’t stayed in a hostel or boarding school. I stayed at home and went daily to class. I would not want to go to an old age home, I have seen enough of how they treat the elderly. Money comes first before care and often great neglect, where they are drugged up to spend their days oblivious to what is happening. I prefer to stay yet again at home being cared for by those I trust. My late Uncle was being pressurized by the doctors to go into a home to be cared for. MONEY they want. I told him it was not for him. He had meals delivered everyday to his home, the nurses and doctors called everyday. At 93 He passed away peacefully and quickly back in hospital, he called the ambulance himself.

  59. I love the way you try to find the positive in what sounds like a potentially depressing situation! But there is NO reason why you could not stay in a hostel before the scenario you describe (which might not be the way things turn out for you!).
    Best wishes,

  61. Me too think that old age homes are not that much bad. What you said is very true- during old age staying with youngs may make me feel sick, less confident. It will be best if orphanage and old age homes are merged. Within a big complex, there will be few apartments for old people and few apartments for orphan kids. But playing area, garden area will be same for all… Anyway.. Very nice read… Great share πŸ‘
