Shankar Mahadevan stole the hearts of the elders and Rotarians who were assembled at the Byculla Centre of Ananda Yaan, the widely acclaimed Elder Day Care program of the Rotary Club of Bombay on June 12th. 2018.
The program began with Chairman Alok Sekhsaria and Co Chair Chris Bluemel welcoming the guests. Chris enumerated the various activities that had been done in the Ananda Yaan centres.
President Ramesh Narayan thanked Shankar Mahadevan for being there, and said that Ananda Yaan had truly achieved its mandate of spreading happiness among the underprivilegd elders at Byculla and Dadar Sea Link. He added, that in doing so, the members of the Ananda Yaan Committee were the happiest people of the lot.
Six members of the Dadar centre then presented what they had learned from the Shankar Mahadevan Academy and its Joy of Music program. The three songs were appreciated by all.
And then Shankar Mahadevan, with great humility said the most important thing he cherished was the blessings from the elders.
He then sang with his normal panache and thrilled the large crowd that had gathered even outside the centre.
