Music to heal: Concert for the flood victims

All around the world, people are reaching out to help the flood stricken in Bangladesh to rise and survive. Though, nature seems to play a game and wash away mankind, humanity still lingers on and tries to save as many as possible.

Along with the several hands that reach out to help the flood victims of Bangladesh, Rupkatha, an event management company, also laid out their resources for the flood trodden victims. Sujon and Robin, two young students and also the partners in this project recently organised a concert at the Winter Garden of Hotel Sheraton, to generate funds for donation to these victims.

Big time names of today like NagarBaul, LRB, Warfaze, Dalchut, Artcell and Black performed to their delight and also the audience's. The bands performed various numbers from their albums and rocked the crowd who sang along.

The funds collected that evening were donated to the many agencies which would be working towards rescuing these flood victims and also to develop their souls and minds so as to once again look forward into their lives with hopes and aspirations.
