I do understand that there is a section of our society that truly needs help in old age. And that includes me. But I also feel that if we create old age homes and institutions such as this, chances are that people will carry less guilt for leaving their parents, often suggesting that why don’t you join there instead of coming to us. No parent would like to be away from own child. Often mothers don’t reveal the physical and mental abuse that they go through. If instead, we could strengthen laws, so that children would be inclined to turn to parents, and if we made the views of elders count for changing the society, quite like using them like Roman elders, they would get more respect I suppose.

Today our members attended the first session on blogging. Wonderful experience for all. Sunita Biddu thanks for this great initiative! The participants thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it was a first for most of them.
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.
