" To be a part of the Millennium Fellowship program is an honor. It is a platform that will help me fortify the foundation and thereafter bring to life, my ideas and intentions.
The work I have done or what I intend to do is the result of the upbringing received; where the elders of the house are given due respect and their dignity is upheld under all circumstances. And that’s what I wish for the entire senior generation. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Aashirwaad
I have known and come across several
Old-age homes across my city of residence,
Bengaluru. I have seen them working as
separate units with their inventories and
donors. Sometimes a necessity (medicine,
medical equipment, helpers, etc.) may be
required at one such center but maybe
available at some other facility. In the current
pandemic crisis, I feel that there is a need to
consolidate all such facilities under one
umbrella. This will be like a hotline/helpline,
easily decipherable by the elders (who may
not be tech-savvy).
It will also help the genuine donors who want
to join me in my quest for happiness for our
I wish to bring on board, our elderly who have
skills (like doctors, teachers, cooking lovers,
gardening advisors etc.) and are still raring to
spread their knowledge, not only to their
agemates but also to the younger generation.
Slowly and steadily I wish to build up a
consortium "of the elderly", "for the elderly",
"by the elderly".
