According to Indian Ageing Report 2017, 12 crore adults – almost the population of Japan – are above the age of 60. Incidentally, we as a society are increasingly witnessing the presence of retired and ageing people. With children living in nuclear societies or being anchored to work in far off countries, ageing adults are often found navigating through life on their own.
While they mean the best for their heirs, and pose a rather self-independent demeanour, parents often end up searching for care and companionship as they grow older. While a hand few may end up becoming outbound and explorative, others may settle back home unable to lead a normal lifestyle due to the onset of medical conditions.
So while on one hand, an 8 figure salary might keep you rocketing sky high chasing one goal after another, you might end up losing heart for not being able to spend quality time with your ageing parents, on the other. But there is hope!
