Pune, 23 Jan (The Press Watch) – Suryadatta Education Foundation is committed to achieve quality education in a holistic manner. Along with the regular studies, the students of the institute are given value based education in form of field visits, various co curricular activities such as cultural events and exhibitions are done at campus.
Old age is also called the second childhood, and is a time when one needs love and care of the near and dear. To teach compassion and family values to our young students, recently students of Suryadatta Institute of Vocational and Advance Studies (SIVAS) School of Design, visited the Senior Citizens home ( old Age Home ) in Village Ambee, Near Panshet, Pune. It is managed by Janaseva Foundation, which has its main office in Sadashiv Peth, Pune.
The students were taken to their Auditorium where Mr Sachin and Ms. Sonali Shah gave them a brief introduction of Janaseva Foundation and also what is the work that they do at this place. A very interesting fact was that the full organization is going on with the funding that they receive in form of donations and they have adopted around 80 nearby villages in all respects. Shri Modi, who is staying in this ashram for about 15 years now, teaches Yoga and is in charge of the entertainment of the inmates.
He starts his day with doing yoga and has two sessions of one – one hour of singing bhajans in morning and in the evenings. Though the students spent only a few hours with them, the elders made them realize the value of their grandparents and the tenderness with which we need to take care of them. The students had organized an entertainment program for the grandparents there. Students performed dances, songs, played games and with this enthusiasm, the grandparents there also participated.
The students also gifted them some gifts which they accepted whole heartedly. The students said that these unsaid teachings by the inmates there, the values that they gave us about the life were transforming and very valuable which they were not giving so much importance. In this age of technology, where the values of relationship are diminishing, interaction with these elderly learned peoples who have seen the life so closely is what is the need.
