There’s an ever growing number of the elderly people in our country. Simultaneously the country is undergoing major economic and social changes which are directly impacting societal norms and changing family mores are separating joint families, forcing the elderly to fend for themselves. With pressures on the younger generation increasing in academics, technology enhancement and exposure and engagement with the virtual world, the definition of physical time and spaces is rapidly changing. More time is spent today online than actual physical interaction with people. This is adversely affecting the older generation and increasingly, the elderly suffer from isolation and neglect. In order to counter this growing problem change needs to take place at the formative stage. The way to do this is to start young at the school and college levels.
