My father is 88 years and now he is translating SundaraKanda from Sanskrit to Telugu and he is writing one poem for every sloka in Sanskrit. Like this many of us may have many examples to believe this. One should not think that he/ she is aged and there is no further chance to learn. We can read books and we can learn new points from those readings.
We see many old people who are handling smartphones very happily without any problem. That indicates that they have an interest in learning. My grandfather started writing poems in Telugu at his 60th year and he published 4 books in a span of 4 years.

Even this challenging situation would ease
many things from many persons daily'. Nowadays many small children know well to handle mobiles than elders. So for better learning a thing interest and involvement are necessary rather than age.
The trend to retire from work is outdated and those who love to work always remain active for the new opportunities. Retirement is not the end of life. It is the new innings to prove one's capability that one has acquired through years of experience serving in a particular department. Those who retire from departments can serve people in different ways.
Suppose a retired teacher can help students and teach them as a senior faculty in a private school. He can also serve as a counsellor and guide students for prospects in different academic subjects. An only positive approach is needed to set the passion rolling.
