Bombay Jayashri’s ‘Bhaire Baanvari’
Noted vocalist Bombay Jayashri will present a fund-raising musical concert on the story of Mirabai in Chenai on March 7. Titled ‘Bhaire Baanvari’, the concert will take place at Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Concert Hall, Lady Andal Venkatasubba Rao Higher Secondary School in Chetpet.

Speaking to reporters in Chennai on Wednesday, Jayashri said proceeds from the event would go to Sankalp,a non-governmental organisation working for children with learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorder.

“Mirabai's life is an eternal source of inspiration for many poets.She is a very embodiment of courage and creativity. Her poetries are refreshingly contemporary,” Jayashri said.Conceptualised by Gowri Ramnarayan, the concert would trace the life of Mirabai through her poetry. It would also feature bhajans sung by legendary singer M S Subbulakshmi and Falguni Mitra.

Following Chennai, the concert would subsequently be held in many cities, including Delhi and Bangalore. Donor passes are available at Sankalp, 6th Avenue, Anna Nagar West, and also at Landmark, Nungambakkam; Odyssey, Adyar; and Oxford Book Store, Haddows Road.
