In Sri Aurobindo’s words “An outer activity as well as an inner change is needed and it must be at once a spiritual, cultural, educational, social and economical action”.

Nowadays people lead busy lives, their careers expect them to travel to other places, even other countries. They do not have time or possibility to take care of their ageing parents daily. Moreover, the parents, on their side, do not wish to relocate and adjust to an alien culture at an advanced age.
This problem is particularly acute in Kolkata. We have tried to form an understanding of what these elders who continue virtually alone in Kolkata may need.

Thus, what we are attempting to create is not an old age home or a hospice, as those terms are commonly understood, but an eco-system of an alternate way of living with a brighter, nobler purpose.
