Visit to an old age home

“Refire! Don’t Retire: Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life.” – Kenneth H. Blanchard.

The community service group initiated their journey by visiting Bhartimaiya old age home in first two sessions.

During our visit, we met different people living there with different perspectives. We were able to connect many of our learnings from Life, Love and Integrity classes.

Here are some of our takeaways from the visit :

  • “Our life is our choice” was reaffirmed. Some of them had a very bitter experience in their life while few of them were so positive – they stated that life is struggle just accept it and enjoy it.
  • One should plan for the future- don’t be dependent on others. Have a secure life – plan finance, stay healthy and eat healthy, meditate. Never compare yourself with others, instead compare yourself with your yesterday and plan for tomorrow (shared by Mrs. Kamla Chawla who lives happily there since past 9 years).
  •  Live your passion and keep it alive. Keep exploring – its never too late. Don’t wait for any opportunity instead go and ask for it. Believe in yourself.
  • We met a couple who were the educationalists and got some helpful insights about the educational system.They were happy to know the teaching-learning methods that we follow.

After this visit, our perspectives about old age and old age home has changed. One should secure a better future by planning in present to experience beautiful old age.
