With over two decades of experience and understanding the plight of economically weaker older people in rural and urban areas, the Author questions whether the meagre monthly pension received by the elderly is sufficient for a sustainable life? Even though the period 2020-2030 has been declared as the WHO Decade for Healthy Ageing, with the motto ‘leave no one behind’, is the Indian government doing enough to make all cities and human settlements inclusive, safe and resilient for our elderly?
An insightful compendium for our think tank, who earnestly feel that an age-friendly policy is the need of the hour and our elders deserve the respect and dignity to live their lives without any discrimination.
Mathew Cherian is HelpAge International Ambassador forAgeing.
