In tune with mental health
It’s that time of the year when open air music fests become a common feature on the city’s cultural calendar. While the bigticket gigs almost always are commercial in nature, an upcoming concert, scheduled for this weekend at a BKC venue is looking at opening up conversations around mental health, the stigma attached to it and the need for seeking help. This is step two of the #SunoDekhoKaho campign launched on World Mental Health Day last month. It will feature artistes Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani, Shalmali Kholgade, Amaal Mallik and Armaan Malik. “Today, mental health is a serious concern in our society. It is important to spread the word and be more sensitive to the issue. We need to pledge to be more mindful — and to suno, dekho, and kaho to alleviate this stigma,” Ravjiani told this diarist. We sure like the sound of this movement.
