On 21st June 2015 (Sunday) a group of poets of Rhythm Divine visited A. J. C. Bose located St. Joseph’s Home. It was a novel experience to be among the elderly and the ailing and share with them poems. Poetry has a therapeutic aspect and this was explored during the visit. The inmates of the home loved the poems recited by the poets and enthusiastically interacted with the poets. Listening to people residing there also gave the visiting poets a new insight into the lives of the elderly living away from their near and dear ones. Sister Anne was kind enough to allow the visiting poets to take a tour of the home and have a look at the facilities. The poets who visited were Amit Shankar Saha, Sufia Khatoon, Anindita Bose, Payal Gupta, Niladri Mahajan and Satabdi. These poets formed a connection with the inmates of the home and were enriched by the experience while reciting their poems.
