The grey wave

Chang Sui and Zen zui Shi get marraid near about 55 years ago and they comes from earlier generation where people use to live together in joint family. They used to born and die among the close ones. Now time has changed and the cultural practice has shifted to accommodate the modern fast paced life. Now a days we often leave our senior citizen alone. China is a country where population is ageing more rapidly than almost any country in recent history. According to united states China’s dependecny ratio for retirees could rise as high as 44% by 2050. The dependency ratio compares the difference between those not in the labor force with those who are working , or can work full-time. At the same time this old aged peoples need more care and concentration but because of the need of livelihood often childreans are fail to live with them and are not able do the required takeing care of them.
