He gave Up a Plush Corporate Job for the ones in second-innings of Life #WATWB

I always believed that the ones who are living in Old-age Homes and are in second innings of Life, must be ill-treated or forced by their Kids to live a pathetic Life there.

And then I started looking at the other sides of the coin too.

While there are many who are really forced to live in these old-age homes but there are few who choose to live separately in peace. They want to enjoy their second innings of Life, away from the rush of Life.

 

They have full rights to decide for them. They had already lived a Life fulfilling their duties and executing their responsibilities. Now if they want to spend their rest of the Life their own way, we should respect their decision.

I am sharing a story of the one who gave his Job for the ones living second innings of Life.

second innings of life

Sailesh Mishra’s belief in himself for doing more with his Life made him paved his own path. He gave up his well-paid Job to work for the neglected section of society, the Elderly.

Read his full story here.

    What a wonderful service Sailesh provides to people who need it. I love his idea to dedicate a floor or two in apartment buildings to the elderly instead of having them in a separate home away from their previous surroundings. It would provide interraction between old and young, allowing the young to learn from the old. Thanks for this great story, Upasna.

    It’s wonderful when people find a mission that lights them up, and it’s clear Sailesh Mishra found his. Kudos to him for his dedication and for helping create a culture where the elderly can be treated with increased respect and dignity.
