Summer Soft Musical Treat for Cancer Patients
On or around June 21 each year, the rays of the sun will be perpendicular to the Tropic of Cancer at 23°30' North latitude. This day is the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. It's the longest day of sunlight for places in the Northern Hemisphere.
We, the volunteers of DNipCare, in collaboration with our fellow volunteers from NSS Unit of IIT, Delhi held a Summer Soft Musical Treat for Cancer Patients on 21st June 2014, the longest hot summer day in Shanti Avedna Sadan, the Hospice Centre for terminally ill Cancer Patients in New Delhi.
Antony Cyriac, Ajith Kumar, Abdul Kareem, Kasturi Babu, Dr. Beena, Seema Prasad, Shikha Gulati, Mrs. Antony, Shefali Babu, Anurag Acharya, Shivanandan, Hemul Bunkar, Esha, Niten Mukesh etc., participated in the program and presented a lively enthralling evening for the suffering Cancer Patients to enjoy the soothing music. Niten Mukesh played the Guitar and others participated in the singing program.
It was an effort by us to provide little comfort through the potential of music in the lives of those patients who have otherwise nothing to think of except about their progressing disease while the best care and support being given by the Shanti Avedna Sadan authorities.
