Rights and Plight of Senior Citizens in India

Parents play a vital role in the lives of children. From the day we are born, parents are our protectors, teachers, mentors, well-wishers, providers and role models. Every year, the 21st of August is observed as Senior Citizens Day across the world, including India. The day is an opportunity to acknowledge the significant contribution, sacrifices, and dedication of elder persons, and to ensure that we are doing our best to give something back to older men and women.
