To commemorate the United Nation's International Day of Older Persons and the International Day of Non-Violence, we speak to former judge Dato Mahadev Shankar to discuss the impact of the new urban environment on older persons. We will also touch on the philosophy of non-violence in the process of healthy ageing.
