    UMANG, a unique talent show for seniors is organized by Silver Inning Foundation since 2008. This year it was held on March 25th 2017 at Birla Matoshree Sabhagriha, New Marine Lines, Mumbai where 134 participants between 50-79 years participated and it was attended by 1000 plus audience out of which 95% were senior citizens.

    Mr. Sailesh Mishra Founder of Silver Inning Foundation says, “We organise UMANG, a talent show for seniors every year since 2008. Unlike other talent shows, there are no prizes for winning the top three positions. Everybody is a winner. It is amazing to see the level of enthusiasm among seniors to perform on the stage. We give certificate to all participants and trophy to all group and Individual act.”

    According to me, this talent show is special because it not only showcases the talents of seniors but also instills in them a sense of confidence, self esteem and pride for performing their passion in front of others. Also, it gives opportunity to seniors to meet like minded people and enjoy their company. I would like to thank Silver Inning Foundation and its partners for organizing such an event for 60+ people which plays an important role in promoting their quality of life and well-being.
