CANOGA PARK, Calif., United States: Billed as a Sangama event, the East Indian Senior Citizen Club staged its second talent show for seniors April 21 that attracted a nearly sold-out audience at the Madrid Theater here.

The talent show, in which all the participants were seniors, began with a ‘Sheela Ki Jawaani’ dance featuring performers between 79 and 86 years of age, followed by a Ras Garba, performed by eight older ladies who were dressed alike.
Other items included a Shayeri with performers between 81 and 86 years of age, a monologue about the power of today’s women, two women who played different women in time, and a not-so-newlywed game featuring three couples who gave some wild answers to questions from a male and female moderator.
After two of the oldest seniors in their 90s briefly sang songs, the show ended with a grand finale as the women seniors sang a two-minute ode to the mothers, the men dancing Gangnam-style for a minute, followed by all 28 participants dancing to “Jai Ho” until the curtains came down.

The East Indian Senior Citizen Club was established in 1991 by Umi Mukherjee and is run solely by volunteers, with no funding of any kind from government agencies. The seniors meet the second Saturday of each month at Woodland Hills Church in Woodland Hills. Membership is free and sponsored events include trips, tours and health-related seminars pertinent to senior issues.
