A Person who used to serve his father, mother daily right from bathing, nursing, keeping the old parents in a proper rest, cleaning the bed etc. One day Lord Vishnu wanted to bless this person, came to his house. The person noticed Maha Vishnu did not abandon his duties to the parents. He thrown a brick and asked Vishnu to stand on it. After finishing his duties he came to Vishnu and got the blessings. Lord Vishnu asked the person “what do you want” he said you have to be here in a standing position to bless all Bhakthas. Lord agreed. That place is now called Pandaripuram worshiping deity Bhagavan Sri Pandurangan. Seniors are abandoned due to abolition of joint family system. Elders are not happy in the aged home and Elders do not desire to have Rs.20,000/- or Rs.40,000/- from the children of the parents that they want to live with their grand children. That is the expectation of the Elders. Further their presence in the family would bring harmony among family members and would always share their knowledge, experience to the members of the family.
