Greetings on the Indian Independence Day

Dear Visitor,

Today we all are celebrating 67th independence day of our nation. This day, after the hosting national flag, we salute and remember the heroic deeds of all freedom fighters. As a citizen of India, I feel so proud and share some of my views with you all.

Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again.

Indian Government, after many years of debate finally declared the National Policy of the aged persons in January 1999. It was also proclaimed as the International Year of the senior Persons. This policy highlights the problems of rising old population and an urgent need to understand and deal with the medical, psychological and socio-economic problems faced by the elderly.

With this question in mind and serving the society as our motto a group of dedicated people started this venture called Second Innings. Here we present a list of handpicked services offered and trusted by millions in this changing face of the city. We will provide info based on personal and collective experience and give the users a platform to avail new services through this service.

This is a humble start for the citizens of Kolkata but we plan to spread our wings slowly. But we cannot achieve what we are aiming without your help and support. So please feel free to advice, suggest or simply comment about your experience about this information portal for the seniors.

Wish this will help realize the long cherished dream of Indian Senior Citizens and help them free the fear to live more meaningfully. Jai Hind. Vandematram!

With Regards,
