Shrimant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust organizes a music festival between Gudi padwa and Ram Navami in Pune every year. The music festival was canceled last year due to the raging pandemic. To the delight of music lovers, it will be held this year. The festival kicks off on Saturday, April 2, and lasts nine days.
In recent years, the festival is held in the Ganesh Kala Krida Manch, Pune. The music festival, which started way back in 1984, is the only Indian music festival that has free entry for visitors. Special guests for the event include Kedar Jadhav, Nitin Daithankar, Sanjay Upadhye, Ajay Gaikwad and Abhijit Jadhav.
Many veterans of music and culture will be featured at the festival this year. This festival is unique because it even features some young artists. The festival immerses every visitor in a serene sense of happiness with its harmonious tones. Those present can enjoy violin performances on Saturday evenings from 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm.
The festival offers an enriching experience to those who love Indian classical music like maestros Pt. Shounak Abhisheki and Manjusha Kulkarni Patil will grace the music festival. Shrimant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust has released an informative leaflet with all the details about the music festival.
Many social initiatives under the auspices of Dagdusheth Halwai Sarvajanik Ganpati Trust have been implemented. For example, the trust offers educational and financial support to underprivileged children and the option of microfinance to small entrepreneurs.
In March 2014, the Dagdusheth Halwai Sarvajanik Ganpati Trust provided assistance to farmers whose crops were damaged by heavy rains and hailstorms. The trust also built houses for 12 farmers from Nimgaon Ketaki in Pune district.
