Singer Benny Dayal’s Live in Concert at The Forum Vijaya Mall, 06th February 2016
I went to the Forum Vijaya Mall today evening and I was so fortunate enough to see something special there. Yes, singer Benny Dayal’s Live in Concert was arranged there. I was enthralled to see the crowd waiting for his performance. I couldn’t find a single place to accommodate myself to watch his show. Yes all the 4 floors plus the ground floor were flooded with people and majority of the time I watched his performance while travelling in the escalators from one floor to another.
Some how I managed to get some space to stand and capture the videos and photographs. It was a great experience watching the live in concert. Also watching such performances increase the vigour in media aspirants like me and it makes us to work harder and achieve the goals sooner.
Had a great time with under privileged kids along with my parents and friends
Its 7 years since I spent my birthday with under privileged kids. So I decided to spend this birthday with under privileged kids and also wanted to entertain them unlike other years. Since the time I became an Event Emcee I have been hosting a lot of birthday events and NGO events. A few weeks back a thought flashed into my mind that I should host my own event this time. So I decided to spend a few hours with these kids after their lunch to entertain them and make the day memorable for them. Though my birthday is tomorrow, due to non-availability of my parents’ time I decided to visit the memorial home today.
