“The message by organizing the function is loud and clear that the family is our strength and we should always respect our parents,” said Sinha and added that by organizing the function they also tried to arouse the sensitivity of society and create awareness.

“The celebration should not be limited to writing messages on our social media accounts but doing our bit in the limited possible way to change the lives of those who elderly people have nobody to look after in their family” and added that each of guest of guests were also provided a packet comprising essential things of daily need like soaps, hair oil, shampoo, tooth brush, tooth paste, biscuits etc.

“We also felicitated, Savitri Devi, a resident of Katras on the occasion who saved the life of a child of her neighborhood in 2014 while some of the children of her locality including her son slipped into  a newly dug up village well, although she failed to save her own son” said Sinha.

Vimla Devi, an inmate of old age home said “All of us are overwhelmed at the love and respect offered to us.”
