Remembering an incident from famous writer Khushwant Singh’s life, BM Singh sums up his own philosophy about age. “Once Kulwant Singh Suri ( son of novelist Nanak Singh) enquired from Khushwant Singh, how he is keeping his health? Khuswant Singh wittingly replied, “I am alright, but for some pain in my knees. What I wonder is, if this is the case in this young age of 97, what would happen in old age.” ‘Elderly need our time, respect’ Celebrating the day at Guru Ramdass Old Age Home, supervisor Poonam says elders are just like children. They need attention and not material things. “Most of the inmates are here because their families and kids do not have time for them. With the changing lifestyle, we seem to have forgotten that the senior citizens need our time and respect rather than money or any other possessions. The inmates at the old age home have built a community of their own, but they do miss their children,” she says. Honouring his mentor MLA Raj Kumar Verka celebrated the day among a gathering of senior citizens at the residence of former Cabinet minister and senior Congress leader Raghunandan Lal Bhatia. At 98, Bhatia received the honours by Verka and also chaired a cultural programme by schoolkids. Verka said that elders are like mentors, who guide us through difficult situations in life with their experiences. “We should give them their due respect and always work towards their betterment,” he said.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
