What is Silver Talkies?
Silver Talkies is a social enterprise startup, co-founded by Nidhi Chawla and Reshmi Chakraborty. It is an online magazine and social engagement platform for the 55+. Silver Talkies’ aim is to empower silvers and to make active ageing a desirable and viable goal for seniors. In keeping with this, we run a digital magazine www.silvertalkies.com
We also foster social companionship through our seniors’ clubs in Bangalore. Presently we run three such clubs in the city and conduct exclusive events for senior citizens in Bangalore every month to give them opportunities to discover new activities & friendships, keeping loneliness at bay, a major issue facing this age group.
