Respect for the elder persons is not only a duty but also a proof of being human.Elders are our real capitals and we should always respect them. Nowadays our generation forgetting Indian culture and due to this, the respect of elderly parents, grandparents are declining. We should not forget that today we are here because of them only. We all should respect the elders. We should understand that senior citizens are an invaluable legacy of society. They have given a lot to the country and society. They have extensive experience in various walks of life.
The United Nations decided to celebrate the International Day of Older Persons in 1990 to show the right direction to the society and the new generation and to honor the contribution of senior citizens to guide it.
The elderly have always been respected. Not only on a particular day but every moment in the life of every person, there should be a sense of respect for their elders.
All the writers on ISC are of different ages, and many experienced elderly writers are also among us, I wish all the members an International Day of Older Persons. I pray to God to keep all the elders healthy and safe so they and their invaluable blessings are always with us.
Happy International Day of Older Persons - 2020.
