Friends we always speak regarding Old Age Homes in schools,colleges & offices but we ever thought to visit any Old Age Home?…Answer is “NO”,”We Don’t Have Time” etc…

Yesterday it was the day for all of us to visit the Old Age Home & celebrate “DIWALI” with the old age people/people abandoned by their childrens who left them when they needed their help & care the most…

Thanks to “SAURABH KASHALKAR” & his wife “DIPTI RADADIYA KASHALKAR” from “UPASANA NGO” whom i knew personally who took initiative/step forward & celebrate “DIWALI” with them…

Thanks to my student & now a professor at “SHEILA RAHEJA INSTITUTE OF HOTEL MANAGEMENT(SRIHM),BANDRA”
“CRYSTAL ROCHA” along with her students came forward open heartedly to do volunteering on my request…They were equally enthusiastic to meet new people as we are all…

We all reached the Old Age Home before 04:30pm & started our work of decorating it with lights,diyas & flower rangolis…Later on Dipti introduced to her NGO team especially Vice President of NGO “SAMEEP SAKPAL”…Event started with “BHARATNATYAM” dance by SRIHM students followed by “MUSICAL ORCHESTRA CONCERT”…Singing to the tunes of late 60’s ,70’s songs was nice,clapping to the tunes etc…Even Marathi songs was sung on demand & request of those old aged people…There was “NO CASTE” barrier yesterday…”We All Were One As A Team” enjoying each and every moment…

Later on “DIWALI CAKE CUTTING CEREMONY” took place with of excitement in the air…There was smiles in their faces when it was going on…I was so much excited to cut the cake,my mouth became wide open like “Awww…” as if i want to eat the whole cake besides it there was music was played too which made me to dance to the tunes & looking at me all the people & volunteers started dancing,cheering everyone…

When i was cutting the cake with the old age people tears came out in everyone’s eyes…I have never seen crying for such moments except their birthdays…U know people y coz they can feel d pain of those people which should happen always…It touched their hearts…

All the volunteers went inside to cut the cake for all & was distributed to all d people…Later on Dipti started the “HOUSIE” game & everyone started to play…There were so happy to play it after a long time…I also played sitting besides them,encouraging them,enjoying with them…

“SMILES EVERYWHERE”…

Prizes were distributed to all the winners of Housie game…Ending up the celebration with my few words to some people :

I & Dipti introduced some people who inspired everyone…First was “SATISH PUTHRAN” who always encouraged me in good social cause activities…I also introduced “DEVYANI KADAM” who is an “ADVOCATE” at “MUMBAI HIGH COURT”…”NAGRAJ BALGI” & his wife “VINUTHA NAGRAJ BALGI”…These people are “MARATHON RUNNERS” & have ran many runs & they are an inspiration for upcoming youth…These people constantly kept me reminding of upcoming events by messaging me…I felt proud in introducing such personalities to everyone…

These volunteers felt like crying to see people without hands,sitting in wheelchair or walking using walker…”HATS OFF!!!” to these people “NEVER DIE SPIRIT” & said to me Geeta Maa these people are an “INSPIRATION” for today’s generation…

Lastly food was served to those people…Dinner included “VEG BIRYANI”,”NON VEG BIRYANI”,”AMUL MASTI DAHI BUTTERMILK/CHAAS”,”SEV” etc…It was according to the taste & health of those people…I got a chance to give a food bite from my own hands to all the volunteers who was present at the venue…They said Geeta Maa we r truely blessed coz ur giving food from ur hands…

These all volunteers got a chance & a lesson to learn by this visit…
“NEVER LEAVE YOUR PARENTS/ABANDON THEM WHEN THEY NEED US THE MOST”…

Friends always remember one thing forever & lifetime : Your parents might have quarreled with u or hitted u badly when u were “CHILD”/”TEENAGE”/”ADULT”…It doesn’t mean they don’t “LOVE U”…They love u so much that they even sacrifice their own happiness for us which we can’t see…The only difference is they sometimes can’t express their feelings coz of “AGE DIFFERENCE”…U will still remain a child for them even though u get married & have kids…

Lastly before leaving the venue these volunteers touched feets of all old people & took blessings from them followed by group pics with them…

Doston Agar Sacha “SWARG” Dhoondna Ho Toh Apne “MAATA-PITA” Ke Charno Mein Dhoondo…

“REMEMBER” This Movie Title Before You Take Your Final Decision In Life “JAISI KARNI WAISI BHARNI”…It Means “The Way U Treat Ur Parents Today,In Future Ur Childrens Also Will Treat U The Same”…
