“You don’t stop having fun because you get old, you get old because you stop having fun.”
A Group of volunteers have been constantly involved in conducting various fun activities / games at different old age homes across the city for over a long period now. All of it to Ensure that the Elders are stimulated mentally, physically, and socially to maintain their health and to avoid depression, isolation and the risk of developing dementia.
The Concept of #HiriyaraJaatre is to create a rural fest (Jaatre) like environment and bring elders from various homes across the city, together under one roof and to achieve an sense of accomplishment in serving them a deserving fun filled memorable day to add to their sweetest memories.
This 'Hiriyara Jaatre'. More than 150 senior citizens from various old age homes are expected to grace the occasion along with their counterparts from multiple other old age homes.
All of them coming together to play some Rural-Traditional games, Simple but challenging quick 1 Minute Games and other fun group games, competing joyfully with their other counterparts and showcasing a winning spirit.
There is no Fun in stopping them from doing what they are best at. Isn't it ?
Yes! Its gonna be their time to Sing their favorite songs, shake their legs to the famous numbers, do some mono-acting deliver some epic punch dialogues and do all that they are good at, to brighten up the moods of the fellow elders, Me - YOU and all other Volunteers instrumental in putting up this show.
