“ Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but then you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator ". Confucius

Following the saying of our great teacher Confucius, a programme was organised by the Chinese community of Territti Bazar or Kolkata Chinatown, for honouring our senior citizens of above 75, on the occasion of the Inauguration of Beijing Olympics 2008
We felt the joy of their encouragement by the presence of about 30 of them. They sat through the inauguration ceremony, shown on the project screen and enjoyed the meal offered. We felt proud of their enthusiasm and joyful presence. We had over 250 members of our community joining in to facilitate them.

We thank all the senior citizens, the whole community for their encouragement and all the volunteers who put in their bests to see to the organisation and with the professionalism in putting up the facilitation of our elders, whom are held in precious esteem and respect.

We invite everyone to join us with grateful hearts and prayer for the happiness and long lives of our elders.
