October 1 - International Day for the Elderly.
"Take a Stand Against Ageism, challenges everyone to consider ageism – the negative attitudes and discrimination based on age - and the detrimental impact it has on older people."
Take time to help somebody cross the road, carry her heavy grocery bags. Take time to listen to a story an older person has to tell (no matter that you've probably heard it before), take time to hold her hand. Take time to care.
The Ashoka Tree is proud to be associated with the elder folk of Gandhinagar. We've spent a lovely day with you this year and look forward to having lunch with you again next year, if not sooner.
