Greetings to all!
As we celebrate, ‘The World Elders Day’’ today, let us all take a conscious decision to not let ageing change us. Instead, let us change the way we age. We will all age, there is no escape from it; but as the famous Tamil saying goes “endenrum markendeyan” – let us stay young in our minds and heart!
Ageing is a blessing, as it gives us both experience and the wisdom that comes from it. The knowledge we have gained from our elders has been a blessing because it has helped all of us to better our lives in all walks of life. It is time to stop looking at ageing purely in terms of time – the number of years lived. Age should be defined by the quality of life and it is up to all of us to provide the best for our elders. On this Elders Day let us all ensure that we give our elders the care, the respect and the affection they deserve and let them know that we are here for them.
This month's newsletter is an elders special edition.
