OLD AND ELDERLY

Open University courses for  Senior Citizens?

Love and affection towards old was a traditional concept among past Goan Community.

It was weaved in practices and customs of the people .

Today in changing circumstances these concepts , traditions and institutions are crumbling.

One hears preachers thundering urging people not to fall prey to  cultre of neglect of  the old  and elderly

Could we provide some alternative ramifications ?

Does Goa need Open University courses, for  elderly and seniors?

Could they be organized by University/ or others ?

Discuss :Advantages and disadvantages

So many elderly may enjoy the thrill of university education.

They may enjoy the thrill to be young at heart.

Some of the old have vast experience and knowledge.

Courses designed by elderly

University Managed by elderly themselves.

Some Universities already have them

Could Goa provide new models.

exercise : Imagine such situation and descibe it in a imaginative piece
