Ageing population are more in developing countries and rural areas, and old population is more in developed and urban areas because of advanced medicare. The demographic transition effectively transforms the various regions of countries from 'mature societies' to 'ageing societies'. Ageing process presents a systematic loss in social status, health, individuality and finally independence. Hence ageing and the aged in 21 century have become the challenging issue in both developing and developed societies in the world.

It studies and analyses their meaningful interaction and engagement in daily activities; exploitation of leisure for better physical and social status; role at cultural milieu; holding the consanguineous kin unit together; their biological, sociological and psychological problems; and their care for better quality of life. The discussion on enormity of senior citizens' problems at various platforms provide an opportunity to planners, policy makers and executives to come out with welfare measures to uphold their status as they deserve more attention and gratuitous respect for being "What they are" and "What that they had been". The book with a comprehensive bibliography, may prove useful to the students, academicians, social planners and the policy makers.
