It was a pleasant surprise for the occupants of an old-age home at Chakka here on Saturday when National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets from the No.1 Kerala Air Squadron visited the institution and interacted with them.
The programme was organised on the occasion of the NCC Raising Day celebrations.
The cadets mingled with the senior citizens and had evening snacks with them.
Many of the elderly at the home were enthusiastic in sharing their thoughts with the youngsters. They expressed their yearning for the love and care of a family. The cadets and the staff, along with Commanding Officer Wing Commander D. Sendhil Kumar, promised to visit the home again and keep in touch with the elderly there.
