Aging

Wonderful article on aging by Atul Gawande in New Yorker

First of all, Gawande is a wonderful writer...if you like this article, do buy his books

Amazing article about aging and how the body changes as we age!

What stuns me is the lack of concern for older people in US - everyone is aware that their mental needs are not met since they get shunted to old-age homes and are effectively cutoff from society...unlike in countries like India where they are part of a large family till they die

What is shocking is that even their health needs are not met in this great country that has so much wealth
