Dwarka Kala Sargam (DKS), a musical organisation of Dwarka residents, welcomed New Year on January 8 with a musical evening. It included songs from Hindi cinema’s golden era, at the community hall of Anusandhan Apartments, Sector 6.
Members, most of whom were senior citizens, performed songs at the event.
The singers were Deepak Malik and Promila Malik from Jagran Apartments (Sector 22); Kamlesh Soni from Manchahat Apartments (Sector 10); RK Jain from Mass Apartments (Sector 10); Shobha Bhatnagar and Ramesh Bhatnagar from Guru Apartments (Sector 6); Rakesh Sharma and DP Sharma from Skylark Apartments (Sector 6); Ritu Dogra from Vidya Sagar Apartments (Sector 6); Jaya Lakshmi from Heritage Tower (Sector 4); and IM Khanna from Jai Bharat Society (Sector 5).
Members of the managing committee of Anusandhan Apartments were also present.
Shashi Jain, secretary of DKS and a resident of Mass Apartments, said, “Singers from DKS performed melodies from their youth. It was an event where we recalled our golden days of youth with golden melodies.”
Speaking about DKS, he said, “Singing is our hobby. Most people in the group either have a background in music or they sing well. So it is a collective effort to recall old days and old memories.”
