While everyone is busy with Diwali preparation, there are many less fortunate children who are deprived of celebrating and sharing the joy of the festival. And even though there are myriad organisations working towards their well-being, food and shelter, only a few go beyond their way for the underprivileged children's happiness.
Happy concert for underprivileged children
Music can be a vessel for good as it creates happiness in everyone's lives. It is like a stress buster and increases the happiness quotient in a person's life. Keeping this in mind, this Diwali, The Artiste Foundation (TAF) and Musical Dreams have started an initiative to spread the festive cheer and happiness amongst the underprivileged with a "Happy Concert". Team TAF and young artists of Musical Dreams Shruti Dhasmana (singer) and Ram Nepali (Guitarist) visited a school for underprivileged children, Naya Prayas at Bhatti Mines where the artists performed for children on various Bollywood songs.
Meeta Nagpal, founder of TAF said, "Entertainment and music is everyone's need. We perform for people of all walks of life. We realized that the less privileged people have limited options for entertainment due to scarce resources. With Diwali round the corner, we thought it as the best time to spread joy and happiness to these kids. Our motive to do these concerts is solely to spread happiness. Their claps, smiling faces and dancing moves encourage us to spread happiness in whatever way we can. This is our little contribution towards the society."
Singer Shruti Dhasmana who along with Ram Nepali performed at the occasion shared, "I have performed at various national and international concerts in front of different sets of audience. This was my first time when I was performing in front of underprivileged kids and I must say this is amongst my most memorable performances so far. After performing here I have realized that money can't buy you happiness and the love which I have received".
