visit senior citizens living alone and help them allay their fears He also used to attend to them as an acupuncturist for which he was trained in 2009 “I decided to get involved in this initiative because the elderly live alone and sometimes need help What better way to give back to the community I was very keen on working with the elderly after the (Mumbai police) helpline for senior citizens was launched” says Kadam He was trained by the Mumbai police to counsel the elderly and the Mumbai Sujok Lions Club provided acupuncture training to him and other officers Kadam would tend to a host of complaints from the elderly from joint pains to stress and anxiety He used his skills as an acupuncturist to calm them down The job was not easy says Kadam Some patients were too scared to open their doors to let him in “One woman was so scared she would refuse to let me into her house So I told her to open the door half-way and speak to me through it It was very different than anything I was used to but I did help her out” As an acupuncturist he used a ring to help calm patients “The ring helps improve blood circulation by opening up blood vessels This reduces stress and eases movement Senior citizens find it especially helpful” he says “One of my patients could not walk properly and was paranoid After giving her this ring she was much calmer happier and physically active”

citizens and attends to them as best as he can “Helping senior citizens makes me happy which is why I try to help out whenever possible Sometimes a phone call makes a huge difference to one’s life I

police station between 2009 and 2013 he says were his best “Looking back at my 36-year career those four years were the ones I loved the most Those years are the reason I got promoted The affection I

posters However Jagtap said the NDS was discontinued as there were complaints from residents as well as elected representatives about corrupt practices by squad members Currently sanitary inspectors
