Read the passage given below and answer the following questions as per the understanding of the passage (Question Nos. 71 to 75)

Ageing can generally be described as the process of growing old and is an intricate part of the life cycle. Basically it is a multi-dimensional process and affects almost every aspect of human life. Introduction to the study of human ageing have typically emphasized changes in demography focusing on the ‘ageing of population’- a trend, which has characterized industrial societies throughout the twentieth century but in recent decades, has become a worldwide phenomenon. Ageing is basically the result of a two dimensional demographic transformation which is explained by overall declines in mortality and fertility.

Although the proportion of elderly in the years 60 and above is considered to be relatively low in the case of the developing countries such as India and China, they have a larger population base. Developed countries have aged with high social and economic development, the socio and economic condition of the elderly in the developing world is a cause for concern as most of them end up in living below poverty line in old age due to inefficient social security. The poverty and deprivation are very common among the aged in the country as it does not have proper safety nets either state sponsored or socially build.

The lives of many older people are more frequently negatively affected by the social and economic insecurity that accompany the demographic and developmental process. The growth of individualism and desire for the independence and autonomy of the young generation affect the status of the elderly. The studies show that the socio-economic condition of older women is more vulnerable in the context of the demographic and socio-cultural change. The condition of elderly poverty has been a consistent phenomenon in the Third World as the older population is deprived of the basic needs.

 Social scientists described the eight diminutions of deprivation among the elderly as poverty, social inferiority, social isolation, physical weakness, vulnerability, seasonality, powerlessness and humiliation of the aged. Poverty is sought to be a major risk of ageing in developing countries and study by the World Bank reveals that in the most of the developing countries, older people are vulnerable.
