The book is immensely useful not only to the growing number of senior citizens but also guides the younger generation in appreciating better the concerns of their elders.The author, who is himself a senior citizen and Member Secretary of a non-political organization, “Citizenship Development Society”, provides answers to many problems faced by his contemporaries and exhorts them to lead a useful life in their twilight years.
