(Editor’s Note: Although recent years have witnessed a tremendous expansion of interest in issues pertaining to physical activity and aging, the vast majority of published work in international academic publications has focused on the physical activity and aging dynamic from the sociocultural perspective of the developed or industrialized world. Remarkably little is known about the role of physical activity in the lives of seniors living in the nonindustrialized world. In this Guest Editorial, Professor Vinod Kumar, Former Chief of Geriatrics at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, shares his thoughts about the role of physical activity for older persons living in India, the world’s second most populous nation).
