One of our members from our Senior Citizen’s centre is a survivor, member, volunteer in this organization. Men, women and little children gave stunning music and dance performances celebrating life. I was particularly impressed by the solo dance performance on the 90s hit ” dil hai chota sa…” and the Cankids performing to the song ” naani teri morni ko mor Le gaye…”
While the nation revoked its patriotic sentiment watching the Republic Day celebrations in Delhi on TV or in person at the parade, some of our senior Delhites took a day out to celebrate the day like it should be. Singing patriotic songs, recollecting past Republic Day memories and chanting national slogans with their grandkids and making new friends.
The Republic day celebration, at Samvedna Senior Care Centre, was a heartwarming experience for all of us. While most of our senior member confessed that it has been years since they last took part in a Republic Day celebration, others rejoiced in narrating stories from their past Republic Day celebrations, back in the day.
