To build a better society is the goal of a number of senior citizens, who meet on regular basis to discuss ways to improve the way of living.
Apart from the members of the Parivartan Sangh, educationists, retired bank officials, chartered accountants and businessmen, too, participate in the get together. They look for methods to spread the awareness of an improved society among people and also encourage them to help those belonging to the underprivileged section of society. They motivate people to interact with their neighbours.
MK Gupta, a resident of Sector 23, said, "We are working for a change in society as a whole. We educate people on women empowerment and uplift of the poor. There are many middle-class families, who need to be taught about women empowerment.
I have organised many medical camps for the underprivileged and have adopted many children, who are now studying in various schools."
Many others, who were present, vowed to encourage their families and neighbours to forget the mistakes committed by the civic authorities and the other departments and work in unison for a better living.
"These senior citizens are doing a selfless service. We should be inspired by them. One of their achievements is the shamshan ghat project. I, too, have been working with Swarg Ashram and a blind school in Najafgarh," said PK Joshi, a retired bank official.
