Its more than an irony. Its, in fact, tragic that the city once known as a pensioners paradise today ranks first when it comes to abuse of the elderly.
A recent study on the state of the elderly in nine cities conducted by HelpAge India found that abuses are reported the highest in Bangalore (44%), compared to the national average of 22%. The other eight cities in the survey were Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bhopal, Chennai, Patna and Hyderabad.
