A VISIT TO AN OLD AGE HOME
“Old age has its pleasures, which, though different are not less than the pleasures of youth”. This is something our students realized when they visited an old age home on 21st December 2017 named “Tollygunge Homes” in Kolkata. The old age home was spread over a large area with large trees surrounding it. The inmates were very hospitable and friendly and they welcomed the students with their beautiful smiles. We knew from their expressions that they were happy to have us there. We gave them few gifts and they were more than happy to receive them. They shared many stories from their past life and told how they wished to see their families again. Though we spent only a few hours with them, they made us realize the value of grandparents. We should make a place in our heart for those people who want nothing but our love, respect and care. It was indeed a memorable experience for our students and we look forward to such visits again.
