Apna Dil to Awara

We started the programme with this song.

Harmonica Distribution

Santa and others distributed tower make harmonicas to all the children.

Magic of music

Santa trio( Manhar Majithia, Alex and his son Avlon ) and Paresh Bhatia did the right job to bring big smiles on their faces.

Hum kisi se kum nahi

They were asked to play harmonica on their own and one can see the joy on their faces. They really freaked out.

They played...Danced...and enjoyed

A Real Joy

Music made them laugh

We all felt a sense of fulfilment last Sunday on seeing smile on the faces of special children. With Harmonica Club members Manohar Majithia and Alex Lobo donning the Santa Claus, playing jingle bell... jingle bell on the mouth organ and Alex's son Avion doing the jig, it became Christmas time at the Prakash residential school for mentally challenged children. Paresh Bhatia and his disciple Devansh played 'Hum Honge Kamyaab' and 'Lakdi ki Kaathi' to the accompaniment of claps from the school children whose joy knew no bounds when each one of them was given a mouth organ by the Harmonica Club. All the children played the harmonica to their heart's content.

Chaudavi ka chand ho :Manohar Vaidya

Manohar Vaidya is a backbone of the group. At this age, without any vested interest he is always ready to help the group. We do not find words to thank him..
I still remember the day when he came for the first time, silently watching others play, and after the meeting got over he started playing with such an expertise, that members wanting to go home had to stay back for almost an hour. That day all of us felt ...'yes we have found the player we needed the most'.
