Mumbai: After a wait of two long years of Covid-19, Dr. Batra’s ® Positive Health Foundation hosted the 11th edition of its prestigious annual singing concert, Yaadon Ki Bahaar. The latest edition of the musical event was held recently at YB Chavan Auditorium, Nariman Point, Mumbai, featuring a medley of yesteryear songs rendered by Dr. Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri recipient and Founder of Dr. Batra’s ® Group of Companies. The annual charity singing concert was graced by the Chief Guest, Roop Kumar Rathod, an Indian playback singer and music director, who is known for his films like Veer Zara, Rab ne bana de Jodi, Border, and Sarfarosh.
Yaadon Ki Bahaar is a highly anticipated event for helping the old widows of The Shepherd Widows’ Home. It is organised by Dr. Batra’s ® Foundation which has been taking care of the health of aging ladies and providing them with free medical care for the last 30 years.
Commenting on the initiative, Dr. Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri recipient and Founder of Dr. Batra’s ® Group of Companies said, “The Foundation was formed 22 years ago to help the disadvantaged. I believe that no one should be denied medical treatment for want of money. That is why we run free clinics across the country to help people in need. I also believe that old people are isolated and they should be integrated at home. Adopting a grandparent is a great idea whose time has come. I do my bit for providing for a few old-age homes across the country.”
Speaking on the 11th edition of Yaadon Ki Bahaar, Chief Guest, Roop Kumar Rathod said, “I have known Dr. Batra for the past 40 years and I am amazed at his zest for life and for reaching out to the disadvantaged. He has a great voice and I’m glad he has used it for the betterment of society. I am also glad that music and generosity have been passed on to his third generation through his grandson Hriman who performed so well today.”
Also on this occasion, the Homeopathy Anthem was launched to popularise the spread of Homeopathy in India. The Anthem about the goodness of homeopathy is conceptualised by Padmashri Dr Mukesh Batra. It is composed by eminent music director Sanjayraj Gaurinandan and sung by Mahalaxmi Iyer, Dr. Rahul Joshi and Dr. Mukesh Batra. It will be distributed free of cost to all homeopathic colleges, homeopathic doctors, and lovers of homeopathy in India. This is the first anthem for homeopathy in the world.
