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!
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!”
When 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 😀
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 😀
