New Delhi [India], Oct 8 (ANI-NewsVoir): An interesting thought to create a memorable afternoon for the senior citizens was what Khurafati Nitin, a popular RJ envisioned and which was ensued earlier this week by Rajat Sharma, Owner, Cafe Myst; who organized an event for the lively senior citizens and compeers of Gharonda, an old age home located at Mehrauli, Gurgaon.

The special event was held at Cafe Myst, a popular Restro-Bar located at Sohna Road, Gurgaon to mark the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti and also extended the 'International Day of Older Persons'.

It took over this year's theme "Take a Stand Against Ageism" to inspire people to not just celebrate a single day but make every day special for the elderly and create a happier environment for them.

It was organized in association with Helpage India and Music Konnects, who catered to the entertainment for the afternoon. Music Konnects is a great concept where there are no boundaries between a performer and the audience. It lets everyone present go tapping, singing and dance along for complete enjoyment.

The event had a well-planned menu, hand-picked by the senior citizens of Gharonda, who were excited to indulge in an array of tangy, sweet and savory vegetarian delights including Hara Bhara Kebab, Alloo Chaat, Dahi Bhallas, Mixed Chatpata Bhel and lots of Masala Shikanji, everyone's favorite summer quencher. The preparation was mindful of senior's health and had everyone going for additional helpings.

Even the transportation for the senior citizens was well-thought of and MUV's were chosen, keeping in mind their travelling comfort.

The event also had a few selected people from corporate and business communities that shared delightful conversations with seniors of Gharonda.

There was dancing and singing including song lists from yester years, which brought an added spring to the whole event. Khurafati Nitin too came along with his entire family to support and capture the event live on FB Video.

Khurafati Nitin stated "It was a very emotional day for me and interacting and spending time with the elders was indeed spiritually fulfilling! I am thankful to God, for letting me be a part of this beautiful afternoon" and then there were people like Geetika Moudgil Sharma, from Music Konnects, who cited her excitement stating, "The highlight was the Antakshri section when Bimla Aunty and company kept rolling numbers from the 50s era."

Rajat shared his belief that an interactive environment for the seniors can add a happier, positive attitude towards health and well-being and assist them in leading an enriched and a joyful life.

He further quoted "An event that lasted for about three hours wasn't enough for the hosts or the guests. the smiles, the expressions, the dance moves and the glee in the eyes of our very special guests gave a feeling of pride and satisfaction to the entire team! Every achievement stands immaterial against the blessings and good wishes that came our way on Gandhi Jayanti!" (ANI-NewsVoir)
