Senior Citizens Meet At Gujarati Samaj

The Gujarati Samaj of Atlanta held its first Senior Citizens Program on April 10 at the Sardar Patel Bhavan in Tucker. The program included classical music and entertainment led by noted Indian classical musician and senior citizen Trambakbhai Vyas.

The audiences enjoyed the devotional, satirical, romantic and humorous classical songs in a variety of Indian languages. The entertainment segment of the program concluded with the Indian and American National Anthems sung by young members of the music team.

Pankajbhai Sampat, vice president of the Gujarati Samaj, in his address, thanked the music team, and the volunteers. He said more volunteers were needed to interact with senior citizens. He also applauded Raj Razdan and her dedicated team of volunteers for their vision in launching the Senior Citizens Program (SCP) of Georgia.

He said talks were on with the Gwinnett County transport authorities for arranging weekend transport for senior citizens. Razdan is also trying to make such arrangements from Cobb County, he added.

Gujarati Samaj is looking for donations of 15-16 working computers for its computer and Internet learning center for seniors at Sardar Bhavan, Sampat said. He also provided a list of programs available for any senior above sixty years age from various counties, the State of Georgia and all over the United States.

Razdan said she was happy that the Gujarati Samaj had chosen to organize the event. "It's very important that our seniors get the tender, loving care and respect from our community," she said, and added that it is also important that more community organizations undertake similar projects geared towards the entertainment of elders.

Rekhaben Mehta entertained the seniors with a variety of games. She said, those who consider themselves young should volunteer for transportation and other activities.

The Gujarati Samaj executive committee, the board of governors, and Chetan and Hema Vyas provided honorary support for the program.
