When Sheela's husband died, grief took her over. "All of a sudden, I was alone," said this attractive, well-dressed
woman of 86. "My confidence was gone...For two years I didn't do anything. I just stayed home.... As I look back
it was such a sad time."
Finally, Sheela decided to vote in a coming election. She saw a newspaper article saying that a senior center near
her home in Sector 38 West, Chandigarh, would teach people how to use the new voting machine.
"I came, learned about the machine, and talked to
Sukhbir Kaur, Center Director," said Sheela. "I never thought I would come
to a place like this. But the director said to try it out. I thought maybe it would help me. So I tried."
That was a year ago,"
Sheela reports. "Now I come almost every day. Every morning I go around and say
‘good morning,' and the people here say ‘good morning.' That's what I needed: People.
"And I don't sit in a chair. There's so much to do. I exercise every day, and we go out, we go places. And I eat a good
lunch. Now when I go home, the lonely feelings still come, but they go away. When I tell people
it changed my life, they look at me like I'm crazy. But it's true
