Hindustani flautist, Singers Vijay Prakash and Shri Pravin Godkhindi perform at ‘Music for Meals’ by The Akshaya Patra Foundation

4th March 2024: The Government of India’s implementing partner for the mid-may meal project, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, hosted Music for Meals, which is an annual mega event, featuring Vijay Prakash, renowned playback singer of ‘Singara Siriye’ (Kantara) fame, and Pravin Godkhindi, acclaimed Indian Classical Hindustani Flute Player. The event was aimed to blend the harmony of music with the mission of feeding millions of children in need.

The concert started with Sri Pravin Godkhindi’s harmonious jugalbandi with his son, Sri Shadaj Godkhindi, wherein they performed Pahadi raga. This was followed by an electrifying duet by Sri Vijay Prakash and Sri Pravin Godkhindi, featuring popular numbers such as Kaadhal Rojave, Singara Siriye, and Jai Ho! 

 

The entry to the event was uniquely designed, with individuals getting a complimentary pass by donating to 3 children (Rs. 4500). The proceeds will serve mid-day meals to socioeconomically challenged children in government and government-aided schools across India.

The concert was also graced by the presence of Sri M.L. Varchuswee Raje Urs, Grandson of HH Shri. Jayachamaraja Wadiyar, Royal Family of Mysore, Sri Prakash Belawadi, Indian Actor, and Sri Rockline Venkatesh, Indian Actor and Producer. Furthermore, the event also featured the student beneficiaries of the Akshaya Patra Foundation, who joined Sri Vijay Prakash for an impromptu performance.

Speaking at the event, Shridhar Venkat, CEO of The Akshaya Patra Foundation said, “We are immensely grateful for the support of all our donors, who have been pivotal in our mission of uplifting children across the country. However, our work is far from done. There are still millions of children in need of our support, who deserve a chance at a better future. In this context, ‘Music for Meals’ is a crucial event, as it not only raises awareness about the impact of nutrition on quality education but also rallies support from compassionate individuals like yourselves, who are committed to joining us in making a difference.”
