Children make moments memorable on elder's day

Navras Dance Troupe members performing at Little Sisters of the Poor Old Age Home on Thursday for the elders.

Variety entertainment programme by the tiny tots of Navaras, spot games for the inmates, interactions and experience sharing, distribution of greetings and pleasantries marked the evening’s celebrations.

As a befitting initiation to the programme, octogenarian chief guest Dorris Saldanha along with 104-year inmate Cicilia D’Souza cut the special cake prepared for the occasion. CIL students Susham Shetty, Ruth D’Silva, Shibani Shetty, Raghutej Marla and Alison shared their experiences with the elderly and prayed for the long life of the inmates. The elders thoroughly enjoyed the cultural presentations which included folk dances from across the country performed by the junior members of Navaras, a city based Hobby Dancers’ Club. Spot games by Geetha Kishore and a monoact by senior citizen G Srinivasan was received with loud applaud.

The inmates were then greeted with a specially designed Elders’ Day Card prepared by the students of CIL as the inmates enjoyed a sumptuous supper. Sister Superior of Little Sisters of Poor, Sister Catherine expressed her gratitude for the members of the organizations for making the Day very special.

Executive Director of CIL Sachitha Nandagopal, Lions Club President Arun Shetty among others were present on the occasion.
