Elders in the New Millennium
Yes, liberalization and globalization have brought in significant and visible developments in the new millennium in our country. But this has adversely affected certain sections of the community. One such is the growing population of elders very particularly those without regular income. With increasing longevity, rising cost of living and fast changing lifestyle, the quality of life of these economically insecure elders is becoming very miserable.
Out of the 100 million elders in India today, only 10.8% are getting monthly pension or some regular income. Most of the rest are constrained to be dependent on children or others for their day-to-day needs. This dependence makes them loose their self-dignity and independence particularly when they are neglected by their children. Inadequate state aided social security schemes further add to their woes.
What Elders Need
Due to advancements in the medical field and growing health consciousness, elders generally in the age group of 60 to 70 years are physically and mentally fit. They are prepared to work as well. What they need is only moderately skilled jobs, part or full time, as clerks, accountants or supervisors with a nominal salary, just for their sustenance. For this, they require orientation for the present day job requirements, training in soft skills, computer literacy and assistance for suitable placements. Those who cannot work in offices require vocational training for income generation and self-employment.
Elders are a great resource of various skills, rich experience and ripe wisdom. They are also cost effective. Society should not let their enormous potentials go waste.
