New Delhi, A captivating evening of dance and music was hosted in the loving memory of the brave soldiers, who have sacrificed their lives for their motherland. This cultural extravaganza was the initiative of Arts Vintage (a project by NGO Sparsh) hosted in collaboration with the famous Naad Foundation. The evening titled ‘Ek Shaam Shaheedon Ke Naam’ at the India Islamic Cultural Centre in the capital was organized to celebrate India’s 71st Independence Day.
The star-studded evening was a brainchild of Mrs Nishi Singh (Director – Arts Vintaage). Says Nishi, “This evening is a tribute to the martyrs who gave their lives so that the coming generations can breathe in independent India. The motive of the evening is to bring the hidden talent out of these young kids who are the future of our country.”
The glorious event was graced by several luminaries including Mrs. Sudha Gupta (Chairperson – Mother’s Pride & Presidium), Mr. Udit Raj (Parliament Member – BJP), Master Rahul Jain (Popular Child Artist), Mr. Mohsin Khan (MD – Prime News) and Mr. Sandip Marwah (Renowned International Media Personality).
As an experienced educationist, Mrs. Sudha Gupta addressed the gathering with kind words and expressed the importance of patriotic values in laying a sound foundation for strong character. “Art is freedom. It can only spring from a heart that is free and a soul that is liberated. Therefore its very appropriate that we are celebrating 71st Independence Day with an evening of music and dance. What’s even more heartwarming is that the evening is dedicated to the brave souls to whom we owe our freedom,” added Sudha.
Special performances by Mr. Shankar Sahney and Ms. Divyanshi were some delightful attractions of this magnificent event, which inspired all to come forth and join hands in remembering our martyrs, without whom breathing in a free India wouldn’t have been possible.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Mohsin Khan, TV personality said, “I thank Naad Foundation and Arts Vintaage for giving me the honour of being a part of this glorious event. It’s a beautiful initiative by their team to commemorate our brave army martyrs with Indian cultural music.”
Senior member of Parliament and Dalit leader Udit Raj also graced the evening. “It’s a good initiative by Naad Foundation and their contribution to the society is commendable. This sort of events should be continued in future”, said Mr Udit Raj. The evening saw a full house attendance of Delhi’s social fraternity that was spotted enjoying the dance and music performances by the talented artists.
