Kolkata, December 5, 2010 (Calcutta Tube/IBNS): Music has never been so soulful and rhythm-divine as Kolkatans remembered the hapless victims of 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai through a musical journey embracing peace at Kala Mandir.
”I like Sandeep’s creations. He is very thoughtful and knows how to infuse life in his beautiful dance forms. I really appreciate his effort for a noble cause,” said dancer-turned-actor Jaya Seal while singing praise for eminent classical dancer Sandeep Mallick.
She was there to attend a programme titled ‘Shanti Bhavna’ — a classical tribute to the victims of 26/11.
Speaking on the latest musical creations of her husband, noted tabla player Bickram Ghosh, she said, “Bickram is busy with one of his precious projects on fusion music. Its more of an earthy stuff which attempts to showcase an artistes’s journey.”
The programme was organised by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) All India Helpless Woman and Child Development Organisation.
Speaking on the occasion, Deb Kumar Mitra, Founder Chief Secretary of the NGO said, ”The children are the future of the nation. This programme is a testimony to the fact that no matter how hard the external forces, people will always rise above adversities.”
The evening also saw outstanding performances by noted artites Biblab Bhattacharya, Soumen Sarkar, Umesh Misra, Ujjwal Bharti and Sounak.
