The FYMMS students prepared short 2-minute videos with senior citizens and spoke about the importance of senior citizens in our society. Total 30 students participated in this program. The objective of this program was to recognize the contributions senior citizens have made in our lives 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. Our Senior faculty members Director Prof. Dr. Vidya Hattangadi and Ms. Farrida Daruwalla addressed the students and spoke about how today’s youth can bring about a change in the society and bring a smile on the face of senior citizens. Mr. Sumit Mohite student of FYMMS spoke about his experience with his Grandmother and Ms. Saloni Jantre student of FYMMS sang “Phoolon Ke Rang Se” and dedicated this song on behalf of the class for all senior citizens showing the love and affection for senior citizens. She shared the change in the lifestyle of today’s generation neglecting the older generation at the time when they need them the most.
