Do we really need to observe the so-called “debt of gratitude?”
It is like paying with good deeds what others had done to you in the past. Or in the simplest term, giving back the good things that a person or any of your friends or relative had extended to you in the past. One best example is “paying” what parents had invested in their child when they spent so much for his education to prepare him for his future. But as the law and common sense dictates, parents have that responsibility to provide proper education to their children, on top of providing them basic necessities like food, clothing and shelter. Children are not duty-bound to “give back” what their parents had given him.
But a child who cares enough for his parents should “look back” and “review” what his parents did to give him a good life. Taking care of them, visiting them one in a while during your free time meant a lot for aging parents. They would be so happy seeing you sparing your time for them, no matter how busy you are. This is not just debt of gratitude, but love for parents.
