And observed and celebrated every year! United Nations General Assembly
Announced in Nineteen Ninety to bring issues to light about the issues
influencing older individuals, such as disintegration with age and abuses.

All affection, care, concern and comforts of stay and studies
To take care of the elderly parents keeping with them and providing
All their needs till death in a peaceful and pleasant way!
August thirteenth today is INTERNATIONAL LEFT HANDERS DAY
A day unique to felicitate yet another nice creation of God
Just a little away from the normals! Left handers said to be

Their attainments and achievements to be appreciable!
