Growing Old is compulsory, Growing up is Optional

In collaboration with the Upasana Society NGO, I visited Ishaprema Niketan NGO in Pune. One question that kept playing in my mind before the visit was, Would the people present there be happy to see me and what would be the topic of our conversation?

And as soon as I reached there, I got all my answers. The inmates were very hospitable and friendly,and they welcomed me with their beautiful smiles.

Old age is also called the second childhood,and is a time when one needs love and care. After spending a few hours with them I realised that they do not need money and luxuries in life but just someone to spend time with them.

As it is rightly said, “Getting old is compulsory but growing up is optional”. I got to see a small child in each one of them who wanted someone to share their joys and sorrows. If you ever have some free time at your disposal do visit a nearby Old age home and try to bring smiles on their faces.

Some of the videos and photographs during my visit to the NGO are given below:

All you need to give is – PRIORITY

How many times has your answer been – “I want to, but I don’t have time.”

Each one of us is living in a world full of competition, busy life, people running the rat race, trying to balance professional and personal lives. And also, cribbing about things which are not fine as per you.

But have we ever done something instead of complaining about it. No.

Why? Because we do not give priority to it. There are things that you do willingly, prioritizing them. But for things, which fall in the last bullet, are always pushed behind.

Let’s try and spend a couple of hours towards doing something for someone who is need – need of our TIME. Yes, let’s spend time doing some social work, helping someone. We love to do that, but it just doesn’t happen because we are tied up with ourselves and our responsibilities all the time. Make this one as one of your responsibilities and push it up in the list.

Give Priority.
