The Deteriorating Condition of Old People

The Deteriorating Condition of Old People

People mostly believe that our greatest threats are the strangers we meet every day or from those violent

men who misbehave with the people around them. But the sad part is that the highest perils of violence

and humiliation lie within our own households, sometimes even from the ones to whom we are the

closest. India is home to approximately 100 million old people today. This large population of senior

tough stage in life. They did their part by taking care of us and raising us to be good human beings and
