With the support of Gharda Chemicals, ILC-I organized a Celebration on the occasion of the World Elders’ Day which falls annually on the 1st of October.
Due to unavoidable circumstances, ILC-I organized this Celebration, known as the ‘Jalsa Jyeshthancha’ on the 14th of October 2017.
 Celebrating World Elders’ Day:The World Elders’ Day is marked on the 1st of October every year.
ILC-I celebrated the World Elders’ Day on the 14th of October 2016, as there were a host of programmes in the week beginning the 1st of October 2016.
DSC_4417This programme, “Jalsa Jyeshthancha” was organized by ILC-I at the S. M. Joshi Sabhagriha, Pune, with the support of Gharda Chemcials Ltd.
Many programmes for senior citizens are held with a view to educate, inform and create awareness on different topics and issues concerning them and their interests. ILC-I too has been holding many such programmes including workshops, consultations, interactions for senior citizens with a view to provide them information, more learning opportunities and intellectual stimulation to keep their minds alert and active. This is all very necessary for a healthy mind and active ageing including a healthy body. But, one tends to forget that the old adage of ‘All Work and no Play makes Jack a dull boy’ holds good not just for school students but for the older persons too!!
DSC_4495Keeping this in mind, ILC-I decided to celebrate World Elders’ Day and provide wholesome entertainment and recreation for the elders to mark the occasion which would ensure the holistic well-being of the elders.
The programme began with refreshments served to the senior citizens who came out all bedecked in their finery to simply sit back, relax and enjoy a feast of music and melody.
DSC_4542While speaking on the occasion and welcoming the guests gathered for celebrating the occasion which was a toast to all elders, Mr. Jayant Umranikar, the Chairman of ILC-I, said, “Seniors must remember that the key to happiness is learning to live with your family in an interdependent way. You must be independent as much as possible, but not to the extent that it pushes away your children, as intergenerational bonding is what helps a family thrive”.
He also added, “It is important to live ‘Today’ to the fullest, think about ‘Tomorrow’ and stop worrying about ‘The Day After’. This is the Mantra for Good Health.”
Further he also advised seniors to not give away one’s property to children while still living. A will should be made, which could point out the way a senior would want his/her property to be dealt with.
DSC_4423Mr. Umranikar stressed that the elders need to be recognized as an important component of every society, because they are the “FUTURE IN THE PAST.”
After the Inaugural Session, the programme of music and song commenced with a melodious rendition by Ms. Manjushree Oak and her group which presented a floral bouquet of songs aptly called ‘Mehak’, which means ‘Fragrance’.
DSC_4572Vibrant and energetic songs of yesteryears were sung on the occasion much to the very spontaneous delight and happiness of the seniors who whistled, clapped, sang and danced along with gay abandon on the stage and in the audience along with the singers, to some very peppy numbers, making for a very enthused and energized atmosphere.
The joyous response of the senior citizens and their effervescent energy was indeed a true reflection of the title of the programme- ‘ Jalsa Jyeshthancha’ ( Funtime for the Seniors). The orchestra played a medley of old Hindi and Marathi film songs which truly energized the seniors.
It was good to see them all forget their worries, the niggling pains and aching joints, and join each other in reliving the glorious young days of love and romance.
The objective of the programme was to provide pure entertainment to regale the seniors on a day that is specifically marked in their honour and help them wash away their worries and problems with this musically melodious and happy way.
