Ruhan Kapoor takes centrestage at Global Punjabi Association Institution of Padmashree Mahendra Kapoor Awards and Spirit of Independence Day Celebrations.
Singer Ruhan Mahendra Kapoor took centrestage alongside Raaman Khuraana, President – Global Punjabi Association, Annu Kapoor, Johnny Lever, Vijayta Pandit, Amrit Mann, Dilraj Kaur and a host of other celebrities at The Global Punjabi Association’s celebration of the spirit of Independence in loving memory of the musical genius Padmashree Mahendra Kapoor. The day also marked the fourth anniversary of the Global Punjabi Association and the second year of the Padmashree Mahendra Kapoor Awards hosted by the same association.
Says Ruhan Kapoor, “It is the 70th Independence of India celebrations in dad’s memory. And it will be a momentous occasion. I will miss dad and we have done thousands of shows together. I miss him every time I perform alone but he is with me through his immortal songs.” Ruhan will perform songs like Hai Preet Yahan Kei Reet Sada…, Tum Agar Saath Dene Ka Vaada Karo…, Neele Gagan Ke Tale…, Lakhon Hai Dilwale…, Mere Desh Ki Dharti…, Mahendra Kapoor’s Punjabi song medley, and duets like Tere Sang Pyaar Nahi Todna… among others.
Says Raaman Khuraana (President – Global Punjabi Association), “While there is no dearth of great causes for an organization like this, it is also true that occasionally one needs to celebrate, dance and laugh for the many blessings that Waheguru Ji gives. This is a dual celebration as we are giving away Mahendra Kapoor Awards to many deserving Indians.”
The Global Punjabi Association has been doing a great service in bringing the people of Punjabi origin together to do good work. The association has, at its core, a dream and vision of social and cultural uplift, uniting and harnessing the dynamic energies of their members to the service of the aged, the sick and the downtrodden. This association is a non-political and non-Government organization. In a short while, it has already taken up a host of cultural programmes as well as programmes for disabled children, fitting of prosthetic for old and impoverished persons with medical issues.
