Q. What is the perfect age to retire?

Q. What is the perfect age to retire?

A. For Governmental employees there is laid down age for superannuation. It is between 58 – 60 years of age. But now, due to progress of medical science, people are hale and hearty after even 60 years of age. They can perform as effectively as anybody else in the organisation. Their experience and expertise can be rightly exploited for optimum benefit of the organisation concerned.

An opinion that now a days, new technologies have been introduced, people opine that younger generations are required for implementation of new concepts for optimal utility. But the old people can also change according to the time. They can outdo anything which the younger generation can transact. Their acquired expertise and experience could be meaningfully utilised for making them realise that they are not out casts but still contributing for the society. They are part and parcel of the society.

Retirees can pool their fund and start their own ventures. Their rich experience can stand them in good stead for chair born jobs, where their counselling can work wonders.

As far as I am concerned, I still transact my job as if I were in my 40th year. It will not be out of place to say that I am still capable of doing or learning new things as a boy of 20 – 25 years can. Learning new things is unending. It starts from birth and ends with the end of our body. So, in my view, retirement from a service does hardly means retirement from active life. If one organisation retires you, have sufficient zeal and enthusiasm somebody else will have you. They are not doing any favouritism to you. You are required because you are still contributor.

So never say retirement from life, retire only from a particular service.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such.

That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.
