Updated on June 23, 2015

Happy and Healthy Retirement Lifestyle

What is Jeevan Dhara?

Many friends have asked me what is Jeevan Dhara.

Is it an apartment building or a Lifestyle?

What is so special about it?

Well, it is both together.

Your Retirement

What do you do in retirement?

You have plenty of time on hand; and probably enough money which generates income and you can live comfortably for many years. But what actually you do with the money and time which creates happiness and keep you healthy?

How you live is important

Living long is not difficult at all as there are medical scientists, researchers, doctors and surgeons interested in keeping you alive. But how you live is important. Do you want to live long sitting inactively in a wheelchair or lying on a couch watching only TV or do you want to move around and enjoy an active life?

This is where Jeevan Dhara Lifestyle comes to your help. When you move into a Jeevan Dhara apartment you are moving into an Indian Seniors Resort and lifestyle of unprecedented quality, happiness and enjoyment. You get here Indian culture and food.

Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam

It is based on the Hindu philosophy of ‘Vasundhev Kutumbakum” meaning the whole world is a family. In the concept of Jeevan Dhara Lifestyle the likeminded retired Indian friends get together and live in an apartment building. Each live in a separate apartment in the building but all live like a joint family.
