Hence, what everyone needs to do is to go in for general insurance in a big way as there will fresh thefts everywhere. Secondly, families have to save enough money for the future. If we ask the surviving 80 plus seniors, they will tell us how they did it in the most difficult times. They had saved very small amounts and went on innovating to have security. Invariably, for example, in each family, the present such seniors would have invested in land in the suburbs when areas were totally under-developed. Today, they would be centers of all action. Likewise, they would also teach us many lessons on how to survive a major crisis like the present one.
