New Delhi, 6th June. The celebrated Bollywood singer was at his creative best when he poured his heart out with his emotional songs from the Hindi films during a fundraiser in which the partner organisation OMIDYAR NETWORK INDIA pledges to double all the donations made on the fund raiser.
Arijit before starting the event said, “I wish all of you are doing well and staying safe. My heart goes out to each of you who has experienced the loss of a loved one. No loss hurts more than this, and today I share your pain’.
COVID is the harshest reality that shows no immediate signs of defeat. We need to gear up to beat it and support India through this immense crisis said Arijit Singh. He sang all time favourites Suno na sangmarmar ki minarey , Kaisi Teri khudgarzi and the popular Kabira song that has rocked the nation on the occasion.
Managing and looking out for the lives of 1.3 Billion people is undoubtedly difficult, and while the infrastructure in larger cities is improving, rural India remains affected and often ignored.The pandemic has reached our rural communities, most of whom are largely unequipped to handle it. The lack of adequate healthcare facilities and shortage of medical equipment, staff and supplies at primary healthcare centres have made many villages in India COVID hotspots.
I have grown up in a small town in Murshidabad in West Bengal and wouldn’t be who I am if not for my small-town upbringing. Seeing how COVID is affecting the people of rural India and watching these regions lack the required infrastructure saddens me and improving things in these regions is of critical importance for the livelihood of crores of people. Said Arijiit.
We need Oxygen, Beds, Medicines, Food and Financial aid for those who have lost family members. As the next wave hits, rural India will likely be affected the most. I have joined hands with Social For Good and GiveIndia to extend a helping hand to rural India. But it is not possible without your support. Together we can help rural India breathe and beat COVID-19. Contribute how much ever you can, added, the versatile singer Arijit Sigh. The event is on right now his facebook page.
