ANNUAL DAY 2005 CELEBRATION
A BIG HIT
EK PYAAR KA NAGHMA HAI
Swara Sampada Organises Programme
of Evergreen Melodies
2005 saw a full house at Kalidas Auditorium, Mulund, enjoy a four hour musical extravaganza called Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai.
It was presented by a musical organization called Swara Sampada, which is devoted to converting bathroom singers into living
room singers, and living room singers into stage singers. This was a celebration of their Annual Day. It witnessed a huge
turnout in spite of being a weekday.
The programme began
with the theme song Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai ably presented by Mohna Joshi
and Dilip Sonetha. This was followed by a lovely rendering of the song Tareef Karoon Kya Uski, which electrified the
whole house. This was presented by the Compere of the show and President of Swara Sampada, Dr. Ajai Singh, a psychiatrist
by profession. As the programme unfolded, different singers presented songs based on five themes: Love, New songs, Sentimental
songs, Fun songs and finally a session of Duets/quawalli//bhajans. The highlight of the show was the superb rendering by singers
who had never sung on the big stage before. It would match any good professional performance. This was the opinion of even
the chief guest of the show Shri Kuldeep Singh, music director of such famous films as Saath Saath. Also present as
Guests of Honour were Shri Vithal Nadkarni, senior group editor of The Times Of India group of publications and Smt.
Jayashri Parikh connected with the performing arts.
A book on music called
the Swara Sampada Sourcebook on Music written by Dr. Singh and his coauthors was also released on the occasion. It
is the result of a two-year experiment called Swara Sampada. It describes how someone with the desire to sing can actually
go about doing it. The book claims it should prove invaluable to all potential and even established singers.

The show was well
conducted by the President of the organization Dr. Ajai Singh whose lively presence on stage motivated the singers to give
off their very best.
As one witnessed
the performance one felt if these were bathroom singers at one time, then this surely needs to be reported to the Ripley’s
Believe It Or Not. The audience was well appreciative of the singers and applauded their performance throughout.
all, a commendable effort indeed. And worthy of duplication.
