It seems to be the season of social awakening with Aamir Khan‘s ‘Satyamev Jayate’ being debated vociferously throughout the country. On the other hand, another gentleman of repute from the industry, Shekhar Ravjiani, arguably one of the biggest names in Bollywood is quietly and tirelessly working towards a cause that he believes in. Ravjiani has been carrying out his social responsibilities in the way he knows best, by creating wonderful music. The music in question being his recently released Marathi single ‘Saazni‘ composed and sung by him, proceeds of which will be given to Maniketan, a NGO that looks after the well being of underprivileged girls.
‘Saazni‘ roots from Shekhar’s childhood interaction with farmers during his stay in rural Nashik. Most of Bollywood have come out in full support of Shekhar’s efforts with several of them taking to micro blogging sites to show their appreciation. However, Shekhar has found a rather special supporter from outside the industry in the form of politician Raj Thackeray. When Mr. Thackeray was informed about Shekhar’s efforts during a recent meet, he lauded his commitment to the cause and also extended his pledged support in every way possible to him. Here’s hoping others in place of high repute take cue from these gentlemen and lend a helping hand to a cause that is in need.
