“Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers, therefore honor thy mother and thy father”
To sensitize the youth of today to the predicaments and problems of aged people and inculcate in them the values of empathy and compassion, Prudence Dwarka 16 B organized a visit to Old Age Home for the students of class 10 as a part of their HPE project. It was a soul-stirring experience for the students to witness how the aged are abandoned by their children, leading life like a recluse in old age homes with wrinkled faces, teary eyes and feeble bodies. The students experienced that despite leading such a hard life, they still have such warmth in them. They appreciated their acceptance of life and its hardships. The students realised that they have a spirit in them to live life and fight loneliness by keeping themselves occupied in singing, writing books, and engaging themselves in various activities.
The inmates were very hospitable and friendly, and they welcomed the enthusiastic visitors with their beautiful smiles. It seemed a spiritual day of emotional saga which left a long lasting impression on the minds of the students. The students became aware of the joy of serving and being with the aged.
