News - Older The Fiddler Sweeter The Tune
by Life Positive
The Art Of Aging GraceFully Now that the old are increasingly being edged out of the place of honour and respect traditionally reserved for them in this country, and we are getting more youth-centric, it becomes necessary to hold conferences on the need to age gracefully. One such was recently held in Hyderabad. The Anti-Ageing Conference and Exhibition was organised by Dr V Hari Kumar, who runs the Blissful Academy and heads the Bharatiya Vaidhya Vidhan Ltd.
D R Karthikeyan, former CBI director and pre sident of Life Positive in his talk titled, “Age gracefully, live purposefully”, emphasised the need for a socio-economic approach to support the elderly. Lalitha Garapati, a meditation guru who was felicitated on the occasion, said, “A two-year-old boy wants to wear his father’s shoes, a five-year-old girl wants to wear a saree like her mother, but at some point of time growing up is no longer glamorous.” Swaamy Maithreya, master of meditation, asked, “Every child, even the worst of us, looks beautiful; whereas every old person looks ugly, why?” He said that the missing link was ‘connectedness’.
The conference venue also featured a small exhibition and sale of anti-ageing products and dietary supplements by Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council (PHARMEXCIL).
