Crayon Crusade Day 4

We decided to take The Crayon Crusade to Aashirwaad Senior Citizen’s Home to see how the elderly react to the task of drawing, something they haven’t done in a long, long time.

We didn’t get tons of creative drawings, but we collected a few heartwarming stories there. Take a look!

Final 1

Mital Uncle wrote down his name and his wife’s name and his address on the drawing sheet we gave him and attached half a dozen pamphlets to the sheet. And when he was done, he said, “Is it good? It better be!”

Final 2 copyColonel Uncle’s the longest living resident of Aashirwaad. He’s been there for six long years!

Final 3When we asked Colonel Uncle why he drew a cake, he told us that your birthday is the only thing that’s truly yours in this world, and nothing else. Do you think Colonel Uncle’s right? Let us know in the comments 😀


Final 4Bimala Aunty’s been living there for the past three months. She didn’t draw or say much, but she kept looking at everyone and smiling 😀

Final 5

So, we promised Colonel Uncle that we’d come for his Birthday on 5th July, and we did! We nom-ed on so many Samosas and the lovely cake. We also gave him a photograph from Day 4 to keep as a memory. If you’d like to meet Colonel Uncle, drop us a message in the comments 😀
