Facebook and Orkut along with other social networking sites are not sole domain of youngsters alone, senior citizens are also using technology to catch up with lost friends or share views with like-minded communities.

To fill the colour in retired life of lonely Indians, a website completely dedicated to the elderly has been launched recently.

"Many surfers of our website have been vocal about their need to make friends, have space to voice their thoughts without being judged by younger generation and remain active. One member feels our website helps bring out their "pachpan ka bachpan," says Ishita Sukhadawala, promoter of Verdurez.Com, a social networking site for senior Indians.

"The website is for Indians and NRIs aged 55 years and above to connect and engage with fellow senior surfers. The aim is to reduce the feeling of loneliness and isolation which comes with old age and promote life after fifty-five," she adds.

The members of the website can network through blogs, forums, book clubs, image galleries, polls, daily discussions, classifieds and chat rooms.
