Visit to old age home 12th October 2018 – The students of MERI of CSR Club, along with our mentors, visited the old age home at DELHI. It was the first time we had visited an old age home. When we reached there some of the inmates were standing near the gate with smiling faces to welcome us all. When we reached inside the building, we saw that all the elderly folk were sitting in a room – waiting eagerly for us. Club members contributed both physically and psychologically by playing games. We sang and danced with them to elevate their hearts laden with agonies of separation and isolation. The people there enjoyed our performance and praised us. We took them down the sepia days of their young days when we started our game of antakshari. It was indeed a great thing to see them participating in it with vigor and enthusiasm. We would have never ended our game if the teachers wouldn’t have told us that it was time to go. Our class teachers gifted to them sweets and roses. We realised that money does not make a man happy,and my decision was that I would never allow my parents to undergo such mental torture,even if I have to sacrifice a lot of my resources,time and comfort. One of the elders addressed us and even invited us to visit them over again. Though we could only spend a short time with them,it has left a lasting impression on our minds. We don’t know whether these senior citizens were happy or sad,living the winter of their lives in the old age home instead of being with their children,but we had a feeling of hollowness in our heart when we left. I feel the moment we consider our parents a burden in their old age we have no right to exist. The number of old age homes in India is increasing day by day. Isn’t it unfair to that mother,who gave birth to you,to treat like this? Isn’t it wrong to throw your father out of their homes? All of us will have to pass through this phase one day,how will we feel if our children also treat us the same way. We must take care of our parents and our grandparents because they need us at this age,as we needed them when we were helpless. If they would have abandoned us when we were small and given up all their duties,we wouldn’t have been here enjoying our lives. If we will not take care of our parents who will take care of them? It was learning experience for us. The event was a success and we hope to visit again.
