Has Ageism become similar to Racism or Sexism ?


Senior citizen

Ageism is prejudice against time. 

Why aging population is given a raw deal ?

Should senior citizens be concerned ?

Are you a senior citizen ?

Are you committing a crime by a having a senior citizen tag ?

Did any one call you Codger,gaffer,grand dad,old bag,wrinkly,old trout,old stagger,Senile,prehistoric,vintage or stone aged ?

Do you regret getting old ?

“Don’t resent growing old.Many are denied the privilege”. Irish Proverb

Is growing old a count down or count up ?

Don’t feel bad if you are made fun of your age.It’s OK.Take it easy.Take a deep breath.This is not the end of life.

This is the society you are living in.Society has its own rule for everything and anything under the Sun.

Society has its own criteria to label people.Society never tires of bullying you !

Read this

“Everything matched my occupational profile.But nevertheless I received a rejection because of my age.Born in 1943,not stout and fat,not lazy and sluggish but instead still energetic and fit.On one hand people talk about skilled worker shortage and on the other hand,being 65 plus year one has no choice”

This was a little excerpt picked up from an informal conversation between two men.

Excerpts from’Ageism: a silent but preventable evil’Credits &source-TOI Dr.Debanjan Banerjee Geriatric Psychiatrist,NIMHANS

Because of these kinds of situations do you want to look younger ?

Am I to look Younger ?

Some thoughts on age discrimination

1.”Discrimination due to age is one of the greatest tragedies of modern life.The desire to work and be useful is what makes life worth living,and to be told your efforts are not needed because you are the wrong age,is a crime”.   Johnny Ball

2.”Not only do we suffer from racism and sexism,but we also suffer from ageism.And that is that once you reach certain age,you are not allowed to be adventurous,you’re not allowed to be sexual and I think that’s rather hideous.[…] I mean is there a rule? Are you just supposed to die when you’re 40 ?  Madonna Ciccone

What is that best you can do being a senior ?

“Honestly,what is ageism really,you know ? If you take care of yourself and you feel good then that’s really all that matters at the end of the day”.  Shay Mitchell

Does ‘Old is Gold’ Still holds good ?


Benefits of being old,surpasses all others.Never think that the advice given by the so called old person is a utter waste.

Encourage senior citizens with all the enthusiasm.Spare your time and spend sometime with them.

Go ahead & enjoy your senior moments

Remember the day is not far off when,all of us are going to become senior citizens

Because majority of the senior citizens are not given enough importance and even ill treated,UN has come out with a day ,exclusively dedicated for old people.

Happy International Day of Old people

What is my advice ?

For those who get depressed because of getting old…..Start telling yourself…..

“To me old age is always ten years older than I am “. John Burroughs

Start living in dignity.

Please share your thoughts.I appreciate.

Thank you.

Life isn’t perfect,but it has perfect moments

Life is n't perfect,but it has perfect moments

It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts  Adlai stevensony 

We all know that Life can never be ‘Instagram Perfect’.

But still,why we all make our life miserable ?

1.Because we worry about future which is unknown.

2..We quarrel among ourselves for what happened yesterday,who is responsible etc and trying to blame others or ourselves in the process.Yesterday is past….and nothing can be done,but still we worry for the things that happened.

3. We forget to be happy  today conveniently because we have something or other priorities to attend.

Things don’t happen as per our wish,not readily waiting for us on the silver platter.

Do you remember the quote”Good things come to those who wait” It is nothing but rubbish.Life is never kind and it owes us nothing.There is no such thing called ‘Happy Life’ and my point is that you have to ‘live’  in the moment and make your life ‘Happy’

“It’s not a case of finding the meaning of the moments,but giving the moments meaning”. Steven Redhe

This life is our own and it resonates how you want it to live.If you want it to be miserable ..it’s the way it’s going to be for you.

“you can frame a moment,But you can’t frame life”    Armin Houman

‘Hope’ is good,no doubt it sustains us but then we should make attempts to make that hope a reality by living in the ‘moment’

Then how not to feel miserable in life ? My thoughts are simple.

1.Stop over thinking.

2.Stop judging others.

3.Remember,nothing under your control.Just move along the flow

4.Avoid the mentality of perfectionist.

5.Stop criticizing.You know only part of the story.

6.Avoid negative thoughts .

7.Most importantly stop comparing yourself.

Thank you
