Old Age Can Be a Great Blessing

Sadhguru says, in many ways, old age can be a great blessing because the whole experience of life is behind you.


Sadhguru: Old age need not be misery. In many ways, old age can be a great blessing because the whole experience of life is behind you. When you were a child everything was beautiful, but you were eager to grow up because you want to experience life. When you became youthful, your intelligence got hijacked by your hormones. Whatever you did, knowingly or unknowingly, it just pushed you in that direction. Very few people are capable of raising their intelligence beyond the hormonal hijack and looking at life with clarity. All others are trapped in it.

Technology Initiative for Disabled & Elderly (TIDE)

Keeping in view the National Policy on Older People (NPOP), DST under its Science and Society Programme has recently launched a new programme on “Technology Initiative for Disabled and Elderly (TIDE)” to create an enabling environment for the elderly. The TIDE programme has evolved through a series of consultations involving various stakeholders (geriatric specialists, designers, architects, social scientists, senior citizens, etc.). Five thematic workshops were also organized to deliberate on specific themes. Under this innovative programme, project proposals are supported on conceptualization, research and development for finding technological solutions to address the problems faced by the elderly population and to improve their quality of life. Prestigious academic and research institutions (AIIMS, IITs, IISc, SPA, AIIPMR, National Institute of Social Defence) and NGOs (HelpAge India) are actively associated with the TIDE programme.
