/ I do not long for kingdom, nor paradise nor salvation. All that I long is to ease the miseries of my men, says this sloka. The Vasantha memorial trust desires the same and the misery that it aims to ease the world from is cancer, a disease that afflicts 3% of Indian Population. It embarked on a journey to make cancer never in the year 1993 and in the 16 years it has brought hope, health and happiness to hundreds, thousands and lakhs of people.

Cancer is a disease of the community and the community has to put an act together to get rid of this from its fold. To gather the like minded in the crusade against cancer and to associate good things in life with cancer it has employed music as its tool time and again. Since the year 1998 veterans in the field have lent their voices and raised the hopes of cancer affected. To keep this effect sustained and reach deeper and wider into the society this album Music with mission was conceived. Top ranking contemporary Carnatic musicians have rendered some excellent classical pieces and also incorporated a message. While Nithyashree Mahadevan urges people to join in the fight against cancer, Unnikrishnan seeks Murugan’s blessing for the fight and Bombay Jayashri appeals for a season of everlasting spring in the lives of the cancer affected.

By patronizing this album you have brought a smile to someone’s face, hope to an eager heart and breathed life to a grateful soul. There is life after cancer and you too have joined to say so. Thank you.

Remembrance Day Programs

In every epic & in every Indian movie the real impetus to the fight against evil comes only after an unfathomable loss .Do we require such strong arousal? Can we not be subtly stimulated? Can we not be inspired to good things? Can we not care for cancer victims without seeing tragedies? This is what the trust would like to convey to the all knowing.

And to reach this message it organizes an evening of Bhakti sangeet on every Remembrance Day, by a person who talks to the lord himself & also has the ability to take us to him
