Pune: Students of the Lady Zubeida Quraishi English High School, Hadapsar, visited ‘Pitashri Ashram’ in Bhagyodaynagar in Kondhwa on Friday, where they interacted with senior citizens. 

School founder Dr WR Khan and the students, as a token of their respect, gifted each elder a tea mug. A clock was presented for the office of the ashram. The school also gifted a stationery set to the 35 single-parent children living in the ashram.

Giving details about the visit in a press release, the school management said the visit to Pitashri Ashram was meant to imbibe respect in the new generation about their parents so that there is no need for such old age homes in the future.
“What a child becomes is purely due to tireless efforts put in by parents in moulding his/her future. It is only with parents’ blessings that we flourish and are protected from all unseen harm that may come our way. 

It is the responsibility of children to take care of their parents in old age, as they cared for them in their childhood. However, today’s generation has forgotten this responsibility and put parents in old age homes,” said the release.

The ashram is managed by the ‘Dagdusheth Halwai Trust’ and is home to 
60 elders.
