Senior citizens Problems,, Rights,, Remedies etc.


Human is the best creation of God above all other creations and without having proper laws or human rights, it is impossible for humans to live on this Earth. Senior citizens are also the part of our human society but inspite of so many laws and human rights they still gets exploit in one or the other way sometimes by their children or by their grandchildren or at public places or any other local places. Why it is so happening? Why they are being treated on a bad note as burden on our society? Senior citizens also have right to equality and personal liberty like other human beings but according to some minds in Indian society, the disrespect, the loneliness or the depression they faced are all the normal and general problems faced by them in this age-group. But in true it is not like that. They are those problems which are given to them by the society and not by the nature.
