Aging can be fun if you lay back and enjoy it- Clint Eastwood
The quote says it all, isn’t it? Aging gracefully is your birthright and you should cherish your old age rather than pitying about it. Gone are the days when one would start feeling lonely in the olden days. Today, there are several initiatives that are exclusively initiated to take care of the needs of the senior citizens. And one such initiative was recently taken by GAGAN NULIFE!
GAGAN NULIFE offers resort residencies for seniors that are completely amenities oriented. Several events are planned and programs are carried out to entertain the senior residents. Nulife senior dancing event was recently organized for the Residents in the campus that aimed to hone the dancing skills of the seniors.
The theme of the competition was “Indian Folk Dances’. Can you believe that all the participants were above 55 years of age? Yes, they defied their age and left the youngsters amazed when they performed on the stage. There were altogether 4 groups and each group consisted of 4-5 members.
The participants were determined to prove their dancing skills and excel in their respective dance forms. It was a wonderful experience to witness the several cultural dance forms right from Rajasthani folk dance to Maharashtrian Lavani to Punjabi Bhangra! All the participants performed in their true spirits and trust us, we never felt like they were competing against each other. One could see several hands, feet, and bodies dressed in colorful costumes, twirling, flipping, and performing energetically on the stage. Such an entertaining time for the audience!
Of course, props were also introduced in the dance to make the performances more interesting. Seniors made use of props like hats, chairs, and sticks. The choreography, rhythm, synchronization, and presentation of all the seniors were par excellent. The happiness of the seniors was amply evident with applause and appreciation. Thanks to the audience who not only made themselves a part of the celebration but, also hooted and cheered to keep the performances on. All the participants were awarded.
We congratulated the winners and appreciated the performance of the seniors and also
encouraged them to participate more in such competitions to enhance their talent.
When we spoke to a few participants regarding the dance competition, they claimed to
be super-happy. They were glad that what they couldn’t do at their young age, they
were able to carry out in their old age. They also stated that by performing on the
stage they regained their confidence and would love to take part in future
Well, all that begins well, ends well! We equally felt great by having organized the cultural event for the senior citizens. Most of the times, we all are so occupied in our daily lives, such that we do not pay any attention to the desires of the senior citizens. We neglect them initially and later discard them from our lives completely. Unfair, isn’t it!
Well, Gagan Nulife took the initiative of bringing the changes and adding joy to the lives of the senior citizens! And we promise to continue this forever! After all, adding a smile to someone’s life is the noblest thing on this planet!
