Valentine’s Day is no more about spending time with your spouse, spouse-to-be or love interest. At least, that is what singer Madhushree seems to say. She spent her V-Day in a very special way -- with colours and a cherubic band of kids.
The singer, along with painter Amisha Mehta, spent V-Day with 40 kids at Kalaghoda. The event, a colour therapy initiative by the painter, was intended at improving kids’ creativity by letting them have a blast of colours on canvas. The little ones were asked to paint whatever they wanted on canvas. No rules or restraints were enforced. No restrictions regarding themes or materials. The result? A riot of colours! Canvases with smiling faces, capturing remarkable and unusual moments in smudged, spilled and happy colours.
Madhushree had a delightful time with the kids, doting on them and encouraging them to paint. The event also saw the participation of popular personalities like veteran writer Brij Katyal, DJ Neeraj and Brinda Miller among others.
Singer Madhushree is quite popular both in the North and the South. She has given hit songs in films like Guru, Yuva, Rang De Basanti, Kal Ho Na Ho, Kuch Na Kaho among others.
This event goes to show that V-Day can be enjoyable otherwise also. Kudos, Madhushree!
