In an age where old age homes can be found in any city of the world, where old people live who have been renounced by their own children, here is an unusual example of the devotion of a son toward his visually challenged mother. He has immense love and respect for his mother. As per 'The Hindu' report, this man is carrying his visually challenged mother on his shoulders on a 'Char Dham' yatra ( going around different holy places in India) by foot. He is truly the 'Sravan Kumar' of Hindu mythology in this 21st century.

Meet Kailash Giri of Hinota village of Jabalpur district in Madhya Pradesh of India, who is on his way to Puri with his 80-year-old mother in a makeshift swing ( see it in the picture). He have been traveling since 11 years two months and 12 days to pass by the Berhampur on this Monday , thereby entering Orissa State from Andhra Pradesh in India.

Kailash's makeshift swing comprises a strong bamboo shaft with two swings attached to its two ends that he carries on his shoulders. On one swing sits his mother while his day-to-day articles are put on the other to maintain balance.

His mother accepts that his son has taken up the task as a penance and has already taken her to places like Prayag, Kashi, Chitrakoot, Ayodhya, Rameswaram, Madurai, Tirupati and a trip along the length of the Narmada during the past 11 years.

From Puri, he will head for Kolakata via Bhubaneswar and then walk to Pashupatinath in Nepal, Badrinath and Dwaraka to complete the trip.

"After seeing my penance, if a few youths start respecting their aged parents and see almighty in them, I will be satisfied," he says. Read more..........A `penance' to fulfil mother's wish
