FIRST EVER SeniorWorld SilverWings Fest for our seniors is being organized by Senior World, the first company in India to focus on the overall needs of seniors. The company has started the FIRST-EVER Senior Citizen Fest, an 8-week event in New Delhi, India, to recognize the significance of seniors in our lives and in our community. They are planning a number of events for this fest, including the Senior Citizens Awards, Seniors Got Talent competitions, Sudoku competitions, meet-and-greets with their favorite old-time celebrities, and more.
Mr. MP Deepu, Co-Founder & COO, SeniorWorld said, “We are organizing the first-ever Senior Citizen Fest to show our love and respect to our seniors as they play a significant role in our family as well as in the society. It is important that we appreciate them, show our love and make their golden years the best ever. Also India has many remarkable senior citizens who are doing exceptional work at the grassroots and it is time we recognize them. The fest is completely free of cost and one just needs to register for it”
People don’t grow old. When they stop growing, they become old. This is SeniorWorld’s motto and one of the inspirations behind the fest. Since seniors commit their entire lives to their children, now it is the responsibility of the children to do something for their happiness. It is also quite evident that youngsters today have a lot of myths and stereotypes about older persons which, if not challenged or discussed could lead to increasing gap amongst generations. We need to send out a strong message that all of us are going to be old someday and hence we need to be sensitive towards older persons. Also earlier, retirement was seen as a time when the person had reached the end of an active life. There is this realization now that a person has at least around 20 to 30 years of active life after retirement, and everybody needs to start understanding this.
