Old-age villages planned

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 17 � A representative meet held at Guwahati on Thursday formed a new organisation, Shanti Kunja, with a view to building a cluster of old-age villages at different places of the State.

The idea of such an organisation will be implemented through the two old-age homes at Koliabor and Ledo to form the nucleus of the future chain of such old-age homes. The meeting held under the presidentship of DN Chakravartty was attended by a number of persons experienced in the field.

Dr Hari Narayan Barkotoki, the convenor of the meeting, while explaining the various aspects of the novel scheme, said that Shanti Kunj � unlike the present conventional homes � would provide the elderly citizens and couples to spend the remaining part of their lives independently but in close proximity with their elderly fellow beings.

The home will provide spacious plots of land and independent cottages where the elderly would be able to live alone or share their homes with others.

The participants offered suggestions for building up ideal old-age villages in the State with financial assistance from Government of India. Utpala Bora and Tarini Bora who have already set up an old-age home offered to place their old-age home under the supervision of Shanti Kunja.

The next meet of Shanti Kunja will be held at Apon Ghar at Koliabor on June 2.
