Dr Mukesh Batra enthralls the audience with
‘Yaadon Ki Bahaar 4’ Singing Concert

~Proceeds of the function will be donated to Shepherd’s Widow Home~

Mumbai, 16th January 2014: After pioneering and extending his gentle homeopathic healing touch across India and the globe, Dr Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri recipient, Founder & Chairman, Dr Batra’s Positive Health Clinic, delighted the hearts of Mumbaikars with his melodious voice. The memories and success of the previous three editions of the Yaadon Ki Bahaar concert, which is held every year, motivated the enthusiastic doctor to perform ‘Yaadon Ki Bahaar 4’ today at the YB Chavan Auditorium in the city. The opening song of the event was rendered by Hriman Batra-Dr Batra’s seven year old grandson. The chief guest for the event was Pankaj Udhas, coveted Ghazal Singer of India.

The concert marked Dr Batra’s annual donation to Shepherd’s Widow Home in Mumbai. Managed by Bishop of Mumbai – CNI, the home takes care of over 30 old widows and provides them with free housing, medical and other necessities. It fills the void in their lives and provides them vital support that keeps important aspects of their lifestyles intact while improving their overall quality of life. Dr Batra’s have been associated with Shepherds Widows’ Home for the past 30 years and provides free lifetime treatment to its inmates. The musical concert with its enchanting medley of songs was a treat for them. It was also heartening to see over 500+ audience appreciate and applaud Dr. Batra’s melodious rendition of Bollywood’s golden numbers from yesteryears.

A larger-than-life personality, Dr Batra regularly takes time out from his busy schedule to give back to the society. Inmates at such homes mostly come from increasing nuclear families, growing career and social pressures which our younger generation are overburdened with. He feels that elderly widows do not need our pity. “What they need is attention, understanding, love and care from their fellow human beings — more so, because they feel extremely lonely and left out from the lives of their family. It is our duty to see that they do not spend their twilight years in isolation, pain and misery. When I see them smile, and dance, while I sing, I feel truly fulfilled. My greatest inspiration comes from supporting a cause, doing my bit for the less privileged.”


Madhuri Dixit, can’t stop humming and dancing to the Oral B jingle

Mumbai, 17th January, 2014: Known for her enigmatic and charming smile, Madhuri Dixit, the brand ambassador and Chief Smile Officer of Oral-B kick started the fourth edition of Smile India Movement by shooting for a dance video at a mall in Mumbai. This is the first time that a Bollywood celebrity has participated in a flash mob-styled performance. Shoppers were absolutely thrilled to witness the surprise star act. The jingle, sung by the National award winning playback singer Rekha Bhardwaj and choreographed by the multi-talented Ganesh Hegde, captures the essence of how a ‘bindass bateesi’ is the key to a beautiful life!

The mesmerizing dance moves of Madhuri not only brought smiles on faces, young and old, but also got them to forget their worries and join in the foot tapping number. The performance created a stir among the audience and the mall reverberated with the cheering and applauding by the crowd while the enthusiastic Madhuri interacted with audiences by encouraging them to match her steps and her signature smile.

The passion with which the crowd reacted to the dance break out was overwhelming to witness. Everyone from youngsters to mothers, store staff to police inspectors dropped their personal errands and enjoyed the spectacle. Spectators got a glimpse of the fun side of Madhuri, who kept interacting with the dancers and joking around with the crew.

The catchy jingle, which is one of the key highlights of the video, truly caught her fancy. Madhuri couldn’t stop humming the melody even during the breaks between shots. The jingle aims to spread the message that a family which smiles together is truly a reflection of a happy and healthy family.

Commenting on her association with Oral-B Smile India Movement 4, Chief Smile Officer Madhuri Dixit said, “I loved the overall experience of dancing with the crowd. It took me back to the memories of dancing on various pop numbers. In fact my dressing was very similar to what I wore for the Que Sera Sera video. The enthusiasm of the dancers and the crowd, kept all our energy levels high. It was a great experience to be shooting with friends and fans all around me, watching them enjoy it and bringing a smile to their faces. The Oral–B Jingle is so upbeat that even my children love it and hum it and then we all break into the signature step. I am truly proud to be associated with the Oral-B Smile India Movement 4 and encourage people to take better care of their family’s smile and ultimately their overall oral health. “

As India’s Chief Family Smile Officer, Madhuri believes a family that smiles together, stays together! So celebrate your family’s smile with the jingle through the link appended below –
