“Please don’t retouch my wrinkles.It took me so long to earn them” Anna Magnani
When do you say A person is ‘Old’ ?
Is there any criterion ? What is your definition of old age ?
Any one is happy/unhappy being referred as ‘Senior citizen’ ?Does criteria differs from country to country?
I don’t have ready answers.May be you have an answer.So let me know.My point here is irrespective of the age,why senior people are looked down and not given the respect they deserve?
Also why old people ( I mean who can afford ) are busy dying the hair,undergoing cosmetic surgery etc ? One can always age gracefully ! Daniel Klein ( Travels with Epicurus 2012) advises slowing down,enjoying play and focusing on relationship.
