Maratha Mandir’s Babasaheb Gawde Institute of Management Studies organised a staff visit to Shantikunj Sevashram, a home for senior citizens run by the Vidyadhiraj Charitable Trust Panvel on 19th August, 2021 to celebrate Senior Citizen Day 2021.The objective of this visit was to recognize the contributions senior citizens have made and continue to make to our society. It also helps the younger generation to connect with the senior citizens and get wisdom and insights from them. A matter of concern they expressed is the change in the lifestyle of their children and neglecting them at the time when they need them the most.
The team reached the location at 11.30 a.m. They visited in smaller groups and maintained decorum. The team donated food grains and other necessity items to the home. It was an overall great experience to hear from them about their life experiences
