The memory of a mother and a father is what spurned on a pair of brothers and their families to cater for around 50 elderly residents at the Samabula Senior Citizens Home yesterday.
Balram Nair, and his brother Barma Nand Nair who lives in Sacramento lost their parents, their father back in 1977 and their mother 30 years later, in 2007.
"If my parents were alive, they would be living with us in our homes and we would be taking care of them," said Mr Nair.
"Unfortunately they were both called to better things and it is in honour of their memory that my brother and I chose to come and look after fathers and mothers who are less fortunate."
Mr Nair said he had gotten together with his brother and both their families contributed to make lunch for the residents of the home.
"We just made them chicken curry, dhal, potatoes, peas and baigan," said Mr Nair.
He said the two families had also gotten together and given money to flood victims in the west before deciding to cater for the residents of the home.
