THE OTHER SIDE KALPANA
It is known fact that girls/women are very much dominated in the North India region. Earlier female singers/artists were looked down upon. But Kalpana entered this scenario as a storm setting a trend. Today every well to do family wants their daughter to take music as a career and singing profession and Bhojpuri music is now very much respected.
She is the first person who spoke for the need of Bhojpuri script to recognize the language.
She is promoting Bhojpuri music internationally. She has created history by becoming the first Bhojpuri singer to perform a Bhojpuri show in Mascut, The Gulf of Oman.
She is also involved in the activities of Nova--Netar Heart Old Boys Association, Maa Kali Mandir Trust – Bakhorapur, Ara ,Bihar. Bakhorapur in Ara is a very backward area. She is involved since two years and collect funds through charity shows for the trust. Every year the trust donates 25 sewing machines to widows, 25 tricycles to handicapped persons and essential commodities like food grains, clothing and medical treatment to poor people affected by natural calamities. The trust also arranges marriages for 11 poor girls irrespective of cause and provides for free education in kali mandir. Kalpana is now planning to devote a part to cancer patients. She is associated with “Cancer Patients Welfare Cell” looked after by The Assam Association, Mumbai. Due to lack of specialized medical treatment of cancer in North Eastern States, the numbers of cancer patients arriving in Mumbai for better treatment has increased manifold. To tackle the situation the association has been extending help especially to the patients by way of arranging accommodation at reasonable price, medical check-up for the patients residing in Assam Bhawan, blood for the needy patients, consultation with renowned cancer specialties, monetary help to the economically weaker for purchase of medicines, train tickets and meeting other expenses. Now a day Kalpana is busy doing lots of charity shows to collect fund for the benefit of cancer patients.
On 28th October, 2006, Kalpana performed in a Charity Cultural Evening for the benefit of cancer patients.She also donated a cheque of Rs 10,000/= for the patients aids.
Wish Kalpana a grand success of this humanitarian endeavor.
