High level of insecurity is felt among the senior citizens with none to share the day to day burdens of life. Statistics taken by knowledgeable authorities show that, in next 10 years India shall have 173 million elderly citizens. Shortage of service providers adds on to the problem. Moreover the knowledge gained by them over the years, shall be left un-utilized, making them dull and inactive.
