When they sang their hearts out and won many in return: Jashnerekhta 2017
When we roamed around the stages, the lawns on the 19th of Feb, the last day of Jashnerekhta little did we know that we would be given this gem of a performance. As the voice floated across the lawn audiences began to move in the direction as if the voice was drawing folks to itself.
The Voice came from the dias where the young boys from the Hosla Charitable Trust had no idea of what they were about to create. For almost close to an hour they held the audiences in their own with one melodious number after another. The audiences only grew after the boys began singing and remained hooked till the end.
One thing common between the singers and the listeners was while one sang their hearts out the other had to give-in their hearts for the spell these young singers created.
Localturnon salutes the spirit and the talent in them. Our applause and appreciation for them will never stop for they are our true winners in Life !
The short clip is a collection of our memories from the Jashnerekhta 2017 – and we term it as one of the most memorable of this year’s event for us!
