    Collage- finalThe World Elders’ Day Event which was organised by Senior Express in collaboration with Sangam Sarvajanik Sewa Samiti at Annasaheb Behere Old Age Home in Pune on 1st October, 2018 was an unique event because along with celebrating active living among seniors it was an occasion where we encouraged building of intergenerational bonding among people across different generations through various activities and performances by them.

    More than 100 toddlers, school and college students and young professionals from Pune attended the event and gave wonderful performances to entertain seniors.  Their performances were of varied types, like there were dance performances on nursery rhymes by toddlers, group dancing and singing by students of various schools, skit by college students and a special dance performance on women empowerment  by the young  female staff of old age home. In addition to this we also organised a drawing competition for school kids where they had to draw their feelings for their grandparents or any other significant elderly person.  Team Senior Express was amazed to see the beautiful pieces of art created by the students in respect and love for their grandparents.

    We are very thankful to the Nandanik Group for their mesmerising dance performances in the event.  Nandanik Group is a socio-cultural organization started by the Bengali community in Pune to take up their socio- cultural activities on a common platform and also to work together for the welfare of the society. Their members of all age groups who are mostly professionals working in varied fields gave a wonderful dance performance on the theme of intergenerational bonding. Not only this, they also encouraged and trained some residents of Annasaheb Behere Old Age Home to perform with them.

    Team Senior Express was very happy to see the way in which this event contributed in building the intergenerational bonding among people across different generations. This was a small step from our end towards strengthening intergenerational bonding among people of different age groups which we feel is an essential step towards promotion of active and productive ageing in India.
