The success of the past concerts motivated Dr Batra to organise ‘Yaadon Ki Bahaar 5,’ an annual charity musical show for Shepherd’s Widow Home.

The home takes care of over 30 old widows and provides them with free housing, medical care and other necessities. Dr Batra’s Clinic has been associated with it for past 30 years, providing free lifetime treatment to inmates.

Dr Mukesh Batra said, “These women have gone through so much in life and I think it’s our duty to see that they don’t spend their twilight years in isolation, pain and misery.

They don’t need our pity but our love and care, more so, because they feel lonely and left out from their families. This concert is not about the money that goes to them or the charity; it’s a tribute to their spirit.”
