Pune: Radha Medical Trust of Old Age Home and Krushnaprabhu Hospital, Pune, will be organising Ganesh Darshan tours for the senior citizens in the city for the fourth consecutive year, this Ganeshotsav. The tours will be organised on August 31, September 1 and 2.

“For many years, Krushnaprabhu Hospital has been organising several programmes and initiatives for the elderly. Before we started this initiative, we met an old man at our hospital who was depressed as he hadn’t really visited all the major Ganesh pandals in the city. This made us think that there might be many who wish to see Ganesh mandals, but cannot do so due to old age. So we started this initiative. We have around 150 participants every year,” SP Gujarathi of Radhika Medical Trust said.

The elderly are taken to the Ganesh pandals in cars, in presence of volunteers to take care of them. They have a privileged entry, without having to wait in any queues, and will also be provided with refreshment.
Those interested should register for the tour by August 29 by contacting on 9822666464 or 9822066493. The participants need to carry their Aadhaar cards or any other photo identity proof with them.
