This is shocking statistics for India where the joint family structure still exists- but now more and more old people are forced to live alone - who would you hold responsible? The changing culture, poverty or the parents themselves who do not form close bonds with children when they are young?

I think there r many situations for this phenonmenon.Now the life style between old and young r very different and maybe that's one reason.But I perfer living togther because they are old now , they protect you in the last decades and in the next ,it's your turn...whatever,they are my family.
