"We Shall Overcome Some Day"Senility is a natural phenomenon. It can happen to every man and woman. Generally when a person reaches above eighty, he/she slowly starts losing the mental faculties. The person slowly turns senile.
There are some different possibilities in this regard. A man can leave the world with mental faculties fully intact. A man can leave the world with mental faculties partially intact. Or, a man can lose mental faculties very quickly well before reaching seventies. This is called Alzheimer's Syndrome.
So, senility is an established phenomenon. We have to accept it. Even the celebrities can become senile at a ripe old age. At that time, we have to give due respect to the celebrity, his age, but we must not act according to the celebrity/expert's guidance.
We must learn to call a spade a spade. We must acknowledge that the respected man has become senile. This does not mean demeaning the celebrity.
