Can alimony be claimed 5 years after divorce

I got divorced in 2012 through mutual divorce and didnt ask for any money as i was working in mnc. I lost my job soon after my divorce approx 6-7 mmonths later and since then have been surviving on small time freelancing jobs whatever i get..moreover my parents are retired and unfortunately in very bad financial situation since last 2 years coz rental income which was their only source of income stopped in 2015. Can i ask for alimony or maintainence now atleast till i dont get a full time job or get married.
