Next time your elderly next-door-neighbour paints a rosy picture of his family, saying he/she spends a lot of time with them, think twice before believing the story. He/she might be lying.
Old Delhi Films’ latest video shows a man in his 60’s-70’s talking over phone, telling his friend about how much his grandson, daughter-in-law and son cares for him, while they carry on with their daily routine without noticing his existence.
What you see is a web of lies though.

Towards the end of the video, his grandson asks him – Aap kis se baat kar rahe ho, ye phone to kharab hai (Who are you talking to, the phone is not working)
The video has a message to the society and an important one at that – “We are busy in our lives, we have priorities. But in this hasty life we forget that our parents are getting old too. 40% of our elders feel lonely, isolated and ignored”
“We get so busy in non-important things and we ignore the fact our parents/grandparents who nurtured us are getting old too… and no amount of money or things can satisfy this. All they need is someone to talk to….someone to share things with.. even if it is 10 mins in a day.” shares one of the makers of the video with Indian Express.
