If you know folks who can help Sandip with any aspects of his research, please contact him.
From: Sandip Roy:
The premise of my series is what is it like to be old in a country that’s overwhelmingly young? In 2001 41.05% of India qualified as youth. The predominance of youth is supposed to last till 2050 giving India an economic advantage over China.
But what is it like to grow old in India now, in a country that’s gambling its rise on its youth?
Issues I wish to look at are the fraying social net, retirement communities, NRIs coming back to retire, elder advocacy organizations.
I am trying to establish some contacts with NRIs who have chosen to go back to India to retire and would be willing to talk about their experiences there. If you know someone who has done that would love to hear from you.
Thanks, Sandip Roy
