The national capital saw a night of musical melody as Delhi-based NGO Wishes & Blessings hosted the third edition of the fundraising concert, Jashn-E-Qawwali, at Kamani Auditorium on May 10. The event featured performances by the renowned Qawwali group, Niazi Brothers, who mesmerized the audience with their diverse repertoire, including traditional Qawwali tunes, Bollywood hits, and original compositions.

"We are extremely overwhelmed by the turnout and the resounding success of Jashn-E-Qawwali," said Geetanjali Chopra, Founder and President of Wishes and Blessings NGO. "This marks the third edition of the fundraiser, with the previous two immensely successful. The funds raised this year will directly contribute to our WB Rasoiprogramme, addressing the fundamental need for food among those in need. We are grateful to Niazi Brothers for their continued support and to everyone who attended and contributed to the cause".

 Standout renditions of classics like "Kun Faya Kun," "Chaap Tilak," "Bhar De Jholi," and "Damadar Mast Kalandar" delighted the crowd. Over 500 attendees enjoyed the event, including beneficiaries of Wishes & Blessings' programs such as Sahas, a women's upskilling initiative, the street-to-school project, and the community kitchen. 

The funds raised will support the expansion of WB Rasoi, the NGO's initiative to provide nutritious meals to those in need, with the first WB Rasoi recently launched in Noida, NCR.

"It was an honour to perform for such a noble cause," shared Shahid Niazi, one of the artists from the Niazi Brothers troupe. "When we needed help, they were the ones who helped us during our low phase, and this was our time to give something in return. We are proud to be associated with Wishes & Blessings NGO for the past three years and look forward to contributing more."
