Age is no barrier for learning
Why is age considered to be a hurdle towards learning something new? Voice your thoughts in this thread, which emphasizes the need to look beyond the age factor & feel free to enjoy learning experience at any time of one's life.
Generally there is a notion in people's mind that a student's life is for learning, middle age is for working and old age is for relaxing. To some extent this thinking is all right because after a hectic middle life, one will definitely like to rest and relax.
I feel that this generalisation may not be correct in the sense that age is no barrier for learning. Retirement life does not mean that one will stop learning also. Reading, writing and learning are the three important parameters which are required not only to ooil the rusted mind but also to gauge its present status.
If a person is old but physically fit and in a comfortable environment he must focus his faculties towards learning. It could be through any medium like TV or reading books or creative writing or delivering talks or attending lectures etc.
Age is no barrier for learning. What do you say?
