The students of Class XII-A visited Kartar Aasra, an Old Age Home in Sector 1, Chandigarh on 20.10.2022. They interacted enthusiastically with the residents and had a fulfilling experience wherein they did not just go back home with memories, but also several valuable lessons. The students were split into two groups.

The first group met Mr. Rajendra Lal who had previously worked in the telecommunications sector. He narrated fascinating stories about his life and was indeed a storehouse of knowledge. Mr. Lal was well-versed in current affairs and was also fond of ‘conspiracy theories’ which delighted the students.

The other group was introduced to Mr. Ahluwalia, who had worked at a high position with The Coca Cola Company. He was very sentimental about his children and proudly recounted memories of them. He mentioned how his son was the CEO of Discovery Channel and how his daughter had studied in Australia before returning to India. He had a book of ghazals, which he was passionate about, and he melodiously sang one of them for everyone.

The students were deeply moved by their experience and collectively decided to visit again soon. They will surely cherish and carry these memories with them for a long time.
