Our senior residents time and again prove that enthusiasm has no age and one can experience an adrenaline rush even during retirement years.
The unbelievable hospitality, environment and happiness. We never imagined such an atmoshphere.

It is this unlimited happiness which draws me to Jashn year after year.
- Mr. Punam Singhvi, resident of Ashiana Utsav Lavasa, Senior Living in Lavasa
This is the first time I am riding a bicycle after a long gap of 40 years, and it’s all because of the support of my friends who encouraged me to participate. It was a wonderful experience pedaling and balancing my bike. Thank you Jashn team for all your efforts.
- Usha Gaba, resident of Ashiana Utsav Bhiwadi, Senior Living in Bhiwadi
I always feel thrilled about Jashn as in Jashn-3, I won 3rd prize in a cycling competition. I bought a new cycle for my pleasure and practiced only two days and won the prize. It is a great feeling that I cannot even express. I love Jashn.
- Mr. Sashi Sharma, resident of Ashiana Nirmay, Senior Living in Bhiwadi
My nani is always talking so excitedly about Jashn & brags that she won a prize in the salad making competition the first time she participated. So, I attended the event organized exclusively for our grandparents. I am delighted to see my Nani enjoying her retirement years to the full, here at Ashiana.

My Life at Senior Living
At our Senior Living projects, our residents lead an active life full of facilities and activities that keep them physically fit, mentally agile and socially secured. To keep them physically, emotionally and psychologically fit, there are various activities planned everyday to keep them engaged.
A two-day extravagant annual event ‘Jashn’ is an inter Ashiana Sports and cultural festival which has been organised by Ashiana from the year 2014. All seasons of Jashn has been witnessed through different themes, different competitions and full of enthusiasm. The event is gaining in popularity year after year.
Mrs and Mr Arora were living in their own house in Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi. As their kids had settled abroad, they decided to move to a Senior Living home and finally moved to Ashiana Nirmay Bhiwadi (close to Gurgaon) in August 2018.
As you grow older in age, your responsibilities towards the world slowly start diminishing. The post-retirement age becomes one that unfolds with it, a wonderful chapter where you can finally explore all your interests that got buried somewhere in the toil..
