Shamita Shetty shares emojis with the elderly
Shamita Shetty takes part in digital literacy drive for senior citizens
Joining hands with an NGO, Help Age India, that works for the welfare of the elderly, Shamita Shetty recently took part in a digital literacy initiative. Pointing out that familiarising the elderly with the latest technology is crucial in keeping them socially connected, Shetty says, "Senior citizens may not know how to operate a mobile phone, or use simple features like sending a text message or e-mail.
Such initiatives help them become independent and understand how to use the Internet. This way, they can become socially active, and stay in touch with their loved ones. They could also be abreast of what's happening around the world."
