Short Films Hub: “What is that?” is an exceptional short-film about the relationship between a father & son. An aging father suffering from Alzheimer is excited watching a sparrow & would like to know what is that from his son who is busy reading a paper & yells him for asking it repeatedly. Dejected father walks in & gets back with a diary which shows the same sequence of events but many years back when the son was young & how the aging father had treated him fondly with affection every time the question was asked than yelled at. Son understands his mistake & hugs his father. Very poetic…
Respect, Care, Patience & Love are great words to read but it is somehow lost in this fast moving world. Many of us do not have the time to spend with family running after something for the ones we care while forgetting the fact that all they need is a caring word & affection. Respect your parents, show that you care & love them which would really make a difference cos you might be in the same situation in few years from now.

Wikipedia: Alzheimer’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD), also called Alzheimer disease, senile dementia of the Alzheimer type, primary degenerative dementia of the Alzheimer’s type, or simply Alzheimer’s, is the most common form of dementia. This incurable, degenerative, and terminal disease was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and was named after him. Most often, it is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age, although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer’s can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 million sufferers worldwide. Alzheimer’s is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050.
