This book is a result of an effort to provide authentic, up to date and necessary information on ageing, its different phases and the problems associated along with possible ways to mitigate them. There is vast ignorance on the issues of ageing in the sizeable population of our country. The information on the process of ageing, its associated problems and possible ways to manage and adjust to the changes it brings in, is enormous and is spread across. It is not available at one place for the needy users. As the importance of this sphere of knowledge is expanding and necessary for educating the various sections of population to face the life confidently and benefit the society, an attempt has been made to gather all relevant information and put it in the form of a book. The topics and their coverage have been designed and presented keeping in mind the needs and interests of different age categories of our population. The emphasis has been on clarity and simplicity of the subject. Efforts have been made to provide up to date information relevant to Indian conditions. However, there may be some specific topics which are of general nature. They have been retained to give a holistic picture of the topics to a curious reader. With its balanced coverage of topics and information the book will be of definite source of information for all ages for leading a long, healthy and happy life.
