Ma­heka’s Attack on Can­cer

Society - - NOVEMBER 2014 100 -

DESIGNER Ma­heka Mir­puri re­cently held a fundraiser and char­ity gala show with a dif­fer­ence in Mumbai. Last year, it may be re­called, Ma­heka had launched an ini­tia­tive to fight can­cer un­der the aegis of her foun­da­tion MCan, which works to­wards pro­vid­ing fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to the un­der­priv­i­leged in their fight againWWst the deadly dis­ease at the Tata Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal. Ma­heka Mir­puri was spurred to ac­tion af­ter she lost her fa­ther and brother-in-law to can­cer in a span of just one year. Mean­while, the Move for Can­cer Aware­ness event by Ma­heka com­bined glam­our with giv­ing. A live auc­tion of en­sem­bles, art, jew­ellery and a re­sort stay was held. The sit-down evening was themed around the quaint par­adise that is Kash­mir, com­plete with shikaras and lo­tuses. Vivek Oberoi walked the ramp in Ma­heka’s de­signs, while mod­els sashayed the run­way to soul­ful ren­di­tions by sufi singer, Kavita Seth. We ap­plaud Ma­heka for her sin­cere ef­fort and drive.
