There are countless people standing up for the children of the world, and rightly so – they are our future. But our futures are the sum of our pasts. And
without the wisdom, blessings and stories of our elders, we are rootless. This was the thought with which A.V.Parikh started the institution. Divorcing it
from the ideas that plague such a concept – humiliation, loneliness, and rejection – Amu bhai as he is still fondly known as in Amreli, decided to call it
Dikra-Nu-Ghar, so that when asked where they were leaving for, an elderly person might simply say dikra-nu-ghar… my son’s home. Indeed, if you visit,
what greets you at the gate is a statue depicting Shravan Kumar, the Hindu mythological ‘perfect son’, who allegedly carried his blind elderly parents in
two baskets on his shoulder.
In keeping with that ideology, DNG is run as a big happy home, and the residents are one big family. It is far from the clinical environment usually given
to such a place. Instead DNG is built around a large interactive courtyard, has long airy corridors and verandahs dotted with swings and surrounded by
trees. In the back is a large garden with many benches, and at the heart of the garden a temple for residents and those living nearby. In order to
encourage children to come spend time with the elders, Dikra-Nu-Ghar has installed swings and a playground by the temple.
