There is something known as graceful retirement from active involvement and/or interference, irrespective of chronological age.
Once we can know that our advises are either out dated or not taken up seriously by the other person/party .
It happens even within a family.
The well intended advises of grand parents are not in sync with the contemporary aspirations of grand children.
This is almost the case with many seniors of BJP who are expressing their desperation and frustration at wrong platforms and at wrong times and without contextual relevance.
By doing this they are allowing themselves to become vulnerable tools for the vested interest media groups and targets for juniors within the party who feel irritated.
