International Day for the Elderly is dedicated to honor, respect and care for the world’s elderly. The United Nations General Assembly designated October 1st as the International Day for the Elderly, also known as the “International Day for Older Persons”.
Elderly citizen have all there time available for the upliftment of the society apart from all group meeting, monthly dinners, ex-professions meet likes to spend most of their time focusing all there efforts time and energy on all productive services run and managed only by all our Elders.
Senior Citizen Clubs and groups formed in the locality running all across where all grand parents come together to walk their way of life in the parks or municipal gardens during morning and evening time. There are many active elderly citizen participating in curbing the nation for a better tomorrow based on their practical life experiences and thus leading several NGO’s, consultant groups, managing and coordinating all cooperative welfare programs working out day in and out endlessly thus guiding the society in all walks of life.
Alas! The celebration of birthday parties clubbed together at the month end is really a very emotional scene leaving wet eyes reflects their passion and compassion for each other.
Most of the Grand parents welcome the day in the park-side with the morning walk, exercise followed by discussion over the national and international issues thereafter spare all the time for daily routine’s working out on the respective developmental projects they have undertaken meeting all the necessary working, appointments, meetings thus spending all their time in all productive hyper active day managing a balance in their professional and personal life.
They are my true inspiration with all the bubbling energy, endless motivation, self driven, never say die attitude are the true pillars of growth. It is rightly said, one is as old as he thinks. I salute to all the elderly people of the society sparing all their time for improvement and development of the society.
