Young Hearts!! Help Needed!

January 25, 2010
Volunteers Needed!!
 

I came to Bangalore 6 years back to settle in a job. And since then, I never realized how time flew in a whiff! I always had my hands full of work, fun activities, blogging, outings, movies, celebrations of anything and everything!!

May be I never realized how time flew but my support system (my parents) did feel it. They also had their hands full of things but not of their own! A thing which always bothered me! I had all sorts of medium to entertain myself – facebook, orkut, blog, swimming, work, music, movies, bunch of friends, meet ups, unlimited options for new things in life and the young age! And they settled with my happiness.

Something is going really really wrong here. I felt it so deeply. I had already started thinking of some option. The “Second Innings” idea of the movie “Munna Bhai MBBS” stuck my head and I started planning in similar lines.
 

We have crèche for small kids and I felt I just needed one for older kids 🙂 Why cannot I have a place where all such people can come together, meet, play, share and may be learn many new things together. I just needed to bring them together, make them meet other like minded people and help them grow younger!

And to some extent, I guess I found one. But I need your help here!! It is meetup group opened in Bangalore. Since many of our elders hardly use internet, the onus is on us to help them join it. And I am sure; we would love to see them growing young!

You can as well help by volunteering for this initiative! It hardly takes 5 minutes to become a member and plans to bring all young hearts together and make them enjoy moment to the fullest along with other learning.

Also you can vote for this post on Indivine @ http://www.indiblogger.in/indipost.php?post=8037

Please spread this word to all your friends/elders. Hope to meet you all young hearts soon 🙂

    In the fast moving so called tech savvy world, the face to face meet up and conversations will help maintain the personal human touch between people.

    A good initiative. ATB. 🙂

    Great thought and a very nice initiative 🙂

    You could also get some ideas from the “Laughing club” groups in the city. The old people do not seem to look old but they just rock! 🙂 I love seeing them in the mornings.

    You could also have a look at http://www.ashajeevan.org/. Maybe you could take some ideas, or tie up with this group.

    Cheers,

    It is really a good initative. To spread it – one thing you can do. Probably you must be aware of Promotions on orkut. You can create a promotion in orkut for such a good iniative and your friends can promote this. I’ll do it for sure.

    I tried to get my in laws interested in the net – mail etc…..but they have some sort of phobia about the whole thing.

    Hi Vineeta

    Thanks for your opinion.

    On the question of , “indians”….i think u know that indigenous peoples of a particular place are also called “Indians”…….for example “Red Indians” in america!!
