 Says Sailesh Mishra Founder of Silver Inning Foundation, “We organize UMANG, a talent show for seniors every year since 2008. Unlike other talent shows, there are no prizes for winning the top three positions. Everybody is a winner. It is amazing to see the level of enthusiasm among seniors to perform on the stage”. We give Certificate to all Participant and Trophy to all group and Individual act. There is also evidence that Music and Dance helps in well being for all ages and is good for Ageing Gracefully.
