Chairperson Amrita Kaur makes sure that every event and festival is well celebrated at an old age home to keep the elders happy and high-spirited. Similarly, to celebrate Independence Day or Azaadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’, the team made sure to organize a full-fledged program that included dance, music, theatre etc.

The event commenced with a welcome speech by Amrita Kaur followed by some wonderful music and dance performances by professional artists and the elders of the old age home. Post that, Natshala a well-known theatre group based out of Delhi NCR performed a play named Partition 1947 directed by Vishnu Grover. A compilation of three stories Amritsar aa Gaya, Raavi Paar and Toba Tek Singh showed the agony and pain suffered by Indians. The performance was so powerful and soul-stirring that the audience couldn’t control their tears.

Additionally, Natshala was invited to train the elders for a drama performance. After such heavy and intense acts, the elders were able to spread smiles and giggles on the faces of the audience through an impactful play named Sneeze written by Anton Chekhov and directed by team Natshala. The play was satirical comedy in nature and the senior citizens left no stone unturned to take the audience on a laughter riot. They proved and motivated the audience that age can just be a number if determination and hard work are strong enough.

Chairperson Amrita Kaur encapsulates her experience by saying, I am blessed to have numerous parents. I feel that I am the chosen one by God that I can serve all these elderly with

the support of my team and the Delhi Gurudwara Committee. We try to make sure that we serve our elders with all their needs and on top of it, we keep on organizing events and activities to make sure that their inner child always stays happy and alive.

And, on such an important day like Independence Day, how can we miss a chance to make it not special for them. Purposely, we kept Partition 1947 as one of the acts because 14th August is also a Partition Horrors Remembrance Day and who would understand the pain of those days more than this age group? I feel sincere gratitude that I am able to do something for these wonderful people and seek their blessings by it.” The event was a big success and was conducted in the presence of some dignitaries including Harmeet Singh Kalka (President DSGMC), Dr Raju Chadha (Wave One) and Rana Paramjeet Singh (Ex Counsellor, Rajinder Singh).
