Be Happy Instead of Seeking Happiness – Leave that to the Almighty

14th National Conference of the All India Senior Citizen Confederation concluded at the MLSU Auditorium on 22nd February.

In the concluding speech by Dr. Krishnanand of Ajmer, Financial Assistance to the AISCCON was announced.  This fund will be collected during the Bhagwat Katha event to be held from 31 March to 6 April at Dwarkapuri, said Dr. Krishnanand.

During his speech, Dr. Krishnanand said that a human ages more due to lack of clear thought and vision, rather than age alone.  Man is in pursuit of happiness but this is in the hands of the Almighty.  The only thing man can do is to be happy, which he does not focus on.

Regional President of the AISCCON, Kaushal Kishore Jain, in his address to the gathering, also mentioned the 8 year old pending decision of the then Vasundhara Raje Government, wherein the formation of the Senior Citizens Commission was announced.  He said that under the decision, Adult Homes have been constructed only in Bhilwara and Sawai Madhopur and other cities are yet to avail this service.

Other issues raised during the concluding days event included decision on the Gazette Notification for over 50 Lakh senior citizens of the State, under which the formation of the Tribunal is still pending.  It was suggested to include even the Gram Panchayats under the Act.  Dr. N Chapke, National President of AISCCON also said that once the Tribunal is formed, all complaints need to be resolved within 90 days.

He also said that the Central Health Policy for Senior Citizens needed to be made stronger and more robust and government control on Hospitals needs to be increased so as to provide maximum benefits to Senior Citizens.  Increase in Interest Rates for Senior Citizens by 2% was also suggested.

Some notable persons present in the event included Vinayak Pandey, “Shankh Vale Pandeyji”, who carries a Conch Shell (Shankh) with him wherever he goes.  The blowing of the Shell results in making the atmosphere at a gathering more auspicious.  72 year old Pandeyji has been blowing the Shell for almost 40 years now and asserts that this activity keeps him healthy.
