City doctors present Geeth Gaatha Chal-20

June 6, 2022

Geeth Gaatha Chal, the popular musical show by Doctors and their family, has been entertaining the culture-loving Mysureans since the past 20 years and the 20th edition of the event was held at Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) Convocation Hall on Hunsur Road here last evening.

The event was not held for the past two years due to COVID-19.

Yesterday’s programme featured popular songs both in Hindi and Kannada including group dance. It was doctors all the way who sang their hearts out to entertain the music-lovers.

Dr. Col. M. Dayananda, Director, JSS Hospital, Mysuru, Sarvamangala Dayananda, Dr. M.A. Shekar, Vice-Chancellor of Adichunchanagiri University and Sam Cherian, Managing Director, Schevaran Laboratories, were felicitated on the occasion by Dr. M. Jagannath Shenoy, Industrialist and Philanthropist, who has been patronising and sponsoring the event all these years.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Jagannath Shenoy said that Mysureans have accepted Geeth Gaatha Chal as an annual affair. “During the outbreak of COVID pandemic many people kept asking about when the music programme would be organised next. People don’t recognise me as an Industrialist anymore. They call me as a promoter of Geeth Gaatha Chal. I wish this music programme, which has completed 20 years now, will continue to entertain music-lovers for many more years,” he said.
