In this episode Mr. Amir Khan brings into lime light a very important topic that is taking toll specifically in a South Asian culture these days. The need for more old age houses are increasing at a high rate, which means more parents are being neglected and are abandoned by their children hence reaches shelter homes / old age homes. Many people who run these old age houses were invited to the show while they shared the real life stories that brought tears into eyes of many into the audience. A researcher shares her horrifying experience that in some far village of the country, old age people are being assassinated while giving it a name of tradition whereas the same has been observed in so called modern cities where the quack doctors are being called for they inject the old people with some deadly poison. She shares the fact that it is happening in every class of the society, from rich to poor. As we move further some very good solutions were given by people from different NGO’s who are working towards the same cause. Also some root causes for this problem were defined, helped many understand the reason of this entire emotional numb act.
