Mandalay’s Chinese Muslims Chilled by Rioting Buddhists

MANDALAY, Myanmar — When hundreds of Buddhist men carrying clubs and swords marauded through the streets of this old royal capital earlier this month, the owner of a Muslim-Chinese restaurant took down the Koranic scriptures and the image of Mecca hanging above the cashier and removed the Arabic writing from signs on the street.

HONOR THY FATHER AND MOTHER

One degraded White woman says in a blog, "In the past, you were expected to keep your ageing parents at your home, many now see that this is not possible or FAIR."

COMMENTS:

Many degraded Westerners reject their aged parents.

If the aged parent is capable of caring for himself or herself, it is OK if he/she lives alone but as a safety measure and for companionship a kind house-helper should be hired to live with the aged parent(s) and their kids should live as close to them as possible, preferably down the same street or in the same neighbourhood, so that they can visit and spend quality time with their old parents on a daily basis.

I can't think of an adult kid living hours away from aged parents who're ruthlessly left to fend for themselves.

It is UNFAIR on the part of adult children to keep themselves aloof from aged parents or to consider them a burden so that the kids can live a life of fun and sensual excesses.

Parents should be valued,. loved and respected above all - they're the only ones who love us unconditionally and who stand behind us through thick and thin and who're the source of bringing us into this world and of nurturing us through our formative years.

Had my parents been alive, I'd have lived with them in the same apartment even had I been married with wife and kids or at the most I'd have bought an apartment in the same apartment block or in the same neighbourhood so that I could be as near as is possible to them.

WARNING: May those adult children who desert their aged parents or who treat them as a burden be cursed and meet a bad end.

A WARNING TO HUGH:

I hope that you're caring well for your aged Mummy and have not dumped her in an institution for the aged.

I am warning you against it.

I also don't want your Mom to live all by herself, while you enjoy life with your family and make just the occasional visit to her or make the dutiful phone call - degraded adult kids usually behave with their aged parents in this cruel manner.

Love your mother deeply and respect her from the bottom of your heart and care well for her and keep her with you in your huge house or keep her in a comfortable house in the same neighbourhood where you live with a servant to look after her needs and make it a point to visit her everyday.

Warm regards to your Mom.

A MOST BEAUTIFUL SCENE

I can't think of a more heart-warming scene than that of a loving family of grandparents, father, mother and kids - all living under one roof.

I can picture that family sitting at the dinner table with soothing talks doing the rounds as a servant or the mother serves the piping hot food, or of grandparents talking lovingly to the grandchildren, or of son patting his ill mom while sitting at her bedside in a bedroom of the apartment where the joint family lives, or of the family going on vacation together, or of grandparents planning a surprise gift for the grand kid whose birthday it is the next day, or of son and dad doing a bit of gardening while junior watches and helps out, or of the whole family trundling down to the synagogue or to any other place of worship as the faith of the family may be on the appointed day of the week or during festivals, or of collective daily prayers with the elders leading the prayer, or of the fun, laughter, love and joy permeating the house during special occasions like festivals or wedding anniversaries or birthdays.

These are instances of true harmony that carry great reward for such a family.

Had I been your biological son and had you been aged, I'd have loved, protected and cared for you deeply while living in the same house with you or in a house in the same street and would have visited you at least twice a day to spend quality time with you.

Even now that I look up to you as an online fatherly figure, I'd be more than willing to care for you in your old age by making all the necessary arrangements for your well-being and would not mind even if I have to live in the US to look after you.

I am serious.

Take care, papa.

I am always there for you.

Former,
Try Portugal - a gem of a place in Europe - despite its sick man rep:
Lisboa, Porto, Evora, Sintra, Alentejo, Algarve....
Portugal is a blend of old world charm, history, cleanliness, homeliness, close family ties, church culture, natural beauty, laid-back atmosphere, friendly people, passable English proficiency of the warm and welcoming locals, cozy cafes/bars, efficient public transport, beautiful orange/red roof tiled villas, sufficient modern amenities, quaint villages/small towns, inexpensive tariffs for most things and delicious wines/food and luckily Portugal is often skipped by international tourists (most Indian tourists give Portugal a skip and do not even consider it as a holiday destination) giving it a not so crowded ambience and a less noisy character.
Portuguese ties with India go back centuries and Portugal ruled over some parts of India till as late as 1960....
I have heard good things of Portugal.

Plus it's relatively inexpensive to visit.

I have enjoyed their wine.

What is the "sick man rep?"

Joel---WARNING: May those adult children who desert their aged parents or who treat them as a burden be cursed and meet a bad end.

Frijoles----Why would you want to compound an evil with a second evil?

Lifnei ivir, lo titein mikhshol .

HUghBe---- Perhaps he is modeling his approach after the Tanach where curses are pronounced on those who have done evil.

Why would the Tanach do such a thing?

Besides, deserting one's parents in their hour of need is DISHONOURING them. When you dishonour your parents are you cursed?
