Visit to Old Age Home, Chaksu, Jaipur

Humanity is something which cannot be found in books. It is meant to be experienced. The feeling and understanding of experiencing human to human connect cannot be compared to even the most beautiful descriptions. To strengthen this feeling and to sensitize today's youth, I Year Students of Computer Science Branch, PIET visited an old age home called Shri Ram Vriddha Ashram, situated in the Chaksu, Jaipur. As a part of the subject, Human Values I Year RTU syllabus, the purpose of this visit was to inculcate in the students the values of empathy and compassion, i.e. –the capacity to feel what it is to live in somebody else’s skin and feel their pain; and develop an understanding of the shortcomings of the society we live in. On 25th October 2018, a group of about 34 students accompanied by three Coordinators of the Helping Hands (PIET) and two faculty members –Mr. Rajpal Singh and Dr. Anurika Mehta, visited the Shri Ram Old Age Home. Mr. Kailash, the manager of the home informed that there were 30 inmates in the home and he explained in detail about the background, establishment and management of the old age home. He also told that a lot of inmates were dropped off at the home by their own kith and kin. He enlightened the students on the mental and physical state of the elder members of our society. Students were affected by the information and scenario around them. they were concerned and raised countless queries related to the inmates and their care. having a personal interaction with those aged members, talking to them and seeing the smile on their faces when they knew that someone visited them, was really a heart-warming experience. Students were instructed to talk to them only in a general way and not to ask them about their past life as that might struck a chord bad experiences and memories for some inmates like their children leaving them there etc. Students were escorted and shown all the facilities that were available to the senior citizens there, like – clinic, physiotherapy centre, prayer hall, bedroom, kitchen etc. They spent some thought provoking moments with the inmates who have been either neglected or have become unwanted by their children, who treat them as useless appendages. A lunch with the inmates of the home was also a part of the visit. A delicious lunch of Rajasthan's traditional cuisines Daal, Baati and Churma was prepared there which was sponsored by all the students, coordinators and faculties enjoyed it in the company of the inmates of the old age home. This visit was a huge learning experience for the young citizens and after spending four valuable hours, the students vowed to do something for senior citizens and contribute towards the betterment of their condition.
