“Amar Panchhi: Rising from the Ashes”
The event promises to strengthen hope and build trust in between our fellow citizens. There will definitely be questions thrown at us as to how a performance-oriented event is supposed to strengthen hope and trust amongst us. The answer is simple: unity. Whenever there is an event of such a scale, people from all nooks and corner of the country, people from all echelons, come together on a single ground to enjoy, and make merry. We are expecting not less than 60 thousand audience this time. So there, when 60 thousand people are on a single ground, it becomes very simple and effective to send out the message loud and clear to them. The message this time is “rehabilitating the earthquake victims”. Like the previous event, we have again collaborated with “Nepal Army Wives Association (NAWA)”. NAWA has always organized events that raise funds for great causes. Our previous successful collaboration “Mohit Chauhan – Live in Nepal” had an audience of 28 thousand, and all the money raised from that event was invested in building a huge vocational training school for women, especially the daughters and widows of army men from all over the country. The vocational training school now stands tall in Chhauni and is already operating, slowly but steadily bringing about the necessary changes in the lives of Nepali women.
April 25th, 2015 can be termed “the blackest day” for Nepal. The earthquake hit us all hard and how. Many people lost their lives and their properties. It’s almost been a year now but there are evidences where people are still homeless and underfed. The relief distribution has not reached many areas of the country. Major destructions were mostly caused in various remote areas but unfortunately the people from those remote areas have not been aided with any kind of relief. Our event is set to happen on May 14th, 2016 – a few weeks later than the one-year anniversary of the deadly earthquake. This is our noble try to tell everyone that we all have to move on from all the bad things, but in the process, we should not forget the ones affected adversely. Sure the developed areas of our country have recuperated well, but what about all the neglected villages? The people from those villages continue to bear the brunt of the earthquake. We feel humbled to be able to organize an event that will aid the victims, and rehabilitate them for a better tomorrow. All thanks to NAWA, our artists and our sponsors for you will be the main agents of change.
