Dwarka: On October 23, Tere Mere Geet- Season 4, Hindi songs based singing event was organized by Age Well Association, Dwarka which received thumping applause from the residents of Dwarka.
With the monumental success of the earlier three annual musical events, Age Well Association, Dwarka once again excelled in their mission to entertain Dwarkaites and at the same time, succeeded in providing a huge platform to many aspiring singers to beat monotony created by the pandemic.

The format of the singing event had three categories. The top three contestants from each group were awarded. Children from NGOs were presented with mementoes and prizes. Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Shri P S Dhunta, who is well regarded amongst the music fraternity for his initiative and contribution in promoting music in Dwarka.
Like in previous years, Age Well Association provided opportunities to children of Dwarka based NGOs to exhibit their hidden talents in singing. A parallel platform was provided to the children of Bal Vihar Children Home, Strand N Stride Foundation, Change Network and Foundation of Handicapped Development, all four NGOs from Dwarka. It was an attempt to instil confidence in children and to explore their singing talent.
