Decide is it really social work?
Last year I went to my guest for holidays one couple is living near to them who are doing social work. This couple was retired since 2 years.I asked them which type of social work is you are doing. She replied I have opened my rehabilitation centerSurprising Things you didn’t know about social work/chhayaonline.com
Along with Vrudhashram. oh! very nice I became happy when I asked them, Can I visit your rehabilitation center? I want to give free counselling to their patient. As my brother was no more due to addiction so I am giving every year counselling for his memory for 2 to 3 days for an addicted patient.
Ok, you can come from next day and take a charge he replied. So I went there next day in the morning I saw to the right of that center there was a big another bungalow of this couple where his son and daughter in law is living. At the left side of the corner, there is a Vrudhashram. [A place where grand parents are living as like hostel] I first reached there asked them for their difficulties. They told we didn’t get good food to eat, we are not getting water to bath every day. Whatever food they are giving that food we are eating every day. If we will give complain then they are leaving us outside. I become serious is this is real social work? The goods which are coming from Govt. or from anywhere they are taking for their home. I saw there were weak old parents, someone
is getting medicine, someone not. If we will ask to their receptionist he will easily tell, ‘’They are unfortunate people what can we do for them?’’
Now I went to rehabilitation center I enter in their hall, I saw there lot of patients in small space near toilets with foul smell and some patients are crying loudly, quarreling with each other. Someone is sleeping, someone is sitting at the side of a wall. I asked them for their fees, they replied 10,000 for 2 months & no any facilities are there.
But when I am reading a newspaper every time I am reading about that person. As he is a great person, his every programs news and photos were coming to a newspaper . This man’s identity is that he is the best social worker in that society. When I entered his home for some time and heard about him ‘’His own parents are kept in another Vrudhashram . I astonished and our society is calling him for the inauguration of a lot of buildings, shops, schools etc. As he is moving in a big car having pleasant personality earning a lot of money from a rehabilitation center.
So now tell me can you agree that, this social work is ideal social work? In this way in our country lots of social workers are earning a lot of money with the name of social work.
If you will find this type of social work in your area then you can also write on it.
