The Rural and Urban Aged

Maninder Singh Randhawa (Author)
Synopsis The problems of the aged have attracted serious attention of sociologists and social psychologists in the recent years. In the west a number of scientific studies have been published in this area but there is a dearth of such studies in India. Randhawa’s exposition of the life, problems and possibilities of the aged in both rural and urban areas is well documented, tabulated and researched. The interaction of the aged with each other, with the younger generations of Society and within their families is exhaustively analysed. The writer’s detailed correlation of different aspects of the lifestyles of the elder citizens helps in understanding this largely neglected and growing segment of society. An interesting chapter of this book deals with the beliefs and attitudes of the aged on controversial subjects like divorce, widow-remarriage, life after death and sin and grace.
