The Punjab Governor and Administrator UT Chandigarh Sh. V.P. Singh Badnore visited the Senior Citizens Home in Sector 15 Chandigarh today and celebrated the Diwali with the inmates.

 
 
Addressing the inmates and Day Care Residents of the Senior Citizens’ Home, the Governor said that it was a satisfying experience for him for having spent time with them and interacted with the senior citizens. He emphasised on the need of cultivating herbal and organic plantation especially in the in-house kitchen garden of the Senior Citizens’ Home so that the vegetables they get are free from the pesticides.

Taking good care of the aged is like visiting a pilgrimage, he said. The younger generations must be taught not only to respect elders but also to spend quality time with them. Children learn a lot with this king of interaction with the elders, added the Governor.
