It is heartbreaking to see any ageing person live their last days in misery and abandonment. Whether a celebrity or not, such tragic tales of loneliness do create a lump in our throats.  Recently, a news broke out of ‘Pakeezah’ actress Geeta Kapoor was allegedly abandoned by her son in the middle of a treatment. Geeta Kapoor was admitted to the SRV Hospital after complaining about falling blood pressure by her son Raja.  Raja was asked to pay the expenses, to which he said that he would rush to the ATM and fetch some money to pay to the hospital. However, Raja never returned, and it has already been a month since the unfortunate incident unfolded.  The hospital even tried contacting him and Geeta’s daughter, but all those efforts went in vain and the hospital continued to treat her, drawing a bill of Rs 1.5 Lakhs. Geeta revealed to a leading daily, “He used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that’s why he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled.”   Since Raja has even shifted from his old house, the hospital has filed a police complaint against him and Geeta’s daughter.  Now, filmmaker Ashoke Pandit took to Twitter to announce that the ailing actress has been issued an NOC and will be shifted to an old age home soon.  The Times  of  India : 30th.
