“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal” – following this philosophy Magma Fincorp Ltd, a leading NBFC, had organized a unique“PujorAdda”with the inmates of Tolly Homes – home for the elderly.
There is no better time to share your joy and happiness than the biggest festival of Bengal, the Durga Puja. The unique event was held on the auspicious day of Mahashashti at the premise of the old age home in Tollygunge, Kolkata. The Magma team went and met up with the Senior citizens and together the young and the old celebrated the PujorAdda with Songs, Poems and stories from the past. Taking part in the adda, the inmates had a good time reminiscing their younger days, with their near and dear ones.
Kaushik Sinha, Vice President, Magma Fincorp Ltd said, “The society around us is changing quickly and things which were traditional are giving way to the new. Our bridge with the past are our senior citizens. We meet them every year during the Durga Puja holidays when Kolkata dons festive look and through their eyes, live the golden days of past. These are sentimental moments which we all look forward to every year.”
“Magma has been holding such events for the past thirteen years and we will continue to celebrate the flavour of Bengal through this and several other events in future too”, addedMr Sinha.
