Dignity Foundation is hosting a Dignity Retirement India Expo 2013. This two-day exhibition and event will showcase products and services for 50+ senior citizens along with celebrating World Elders Day and Dignity Annual Day. Dr. Sheilu Sreenivasan, founder president of Dignity Foundation, says, “For the past five years, I will say that the marketplace has elevated senior citizens to the level of a large consumer segment — 100 million strong. This is a good trend because unless business prospects are identified in catering to a consumer segment, there can never be newer products and services addressing senior citizens’ needs. The fact that even in our country products or services are getting customised for this group of the population is a positive trend. And Dignity Foundation is providing a platform through this Retirement EXPO to showcase the same to the senior citizens. To attract senior citizens to come and attend the Expo we have many workshops and empowerment stalls of interest to them.” Entry is free.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is a good time to establish contact with old friends and business associates. If you have been facing any problems in your personal life, find time to get family members together and sort out the differences that have been the cause of unpleasantness at home. Taking some time off in the evening with friends could be a good way of taking your mind off domestic hassles. Things will sort themselves out soon.
