Revocation of Article 370 is like end of leprosy: Kailash Kher

Tuesday, 13 August 2019 | Parvinder Bhatia | Jamshedpur

Welcoming revocation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, renowned singer Kailsah Kher said that the revocation is like end of leprosy. Kher, himself being a Kashmiri, said that his forefathers hail from the land and had faced severe atrocities. During a press meet here, he said that by revoking Article 370, Union Government has ended the leprosy from the forehead of the country.

Kher said that the Government has taken the right decision and this will pave way for development. Sharing his love for the homeland, the Padma Shri awardee said that he would not like to built a home there but would like to set a music academy Kala Dhaam.   

Kailash has been impressed with the divine beauty of Kashmir. And later on, one of the songs from his album ‘Rangeele’, ‘Yaadan Teriyan’ had Kashmir based music video.

It may be mentioned here that Kailash Kher was born 7 July 1973 in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh to a family with Kashmiri roots. His father’s name is Pt. Mehar Singh Kher and his mother Chandrakanta Mehar Singh Kher. His father was an amateur musician whose performances of traditional folk songs were a regular household event.

Kailash learned music from him in his childhood. Kailash Kher was brought up in a musical atmosphere and from his school days he was fascinated by music and used to listen to his father's Indian folks songs all the day.

Meanwhile, the 'Har Har Mahadev' chant and sounds of bell resonated across the city as thousands of devotees thronged temples to seek blessings of Lord Shiva on the last Monday of the auspicious Shravan month.

Temples were decked up with colourful lights and flowers. The devotees waited in long queues since early morning to offer prayers to the deity and sung bhajans. Inside the temples, the fragrance of agarbattis, sandalwood and flowers gave a pious feel. While the serene air that accomplishes religious festivities instilled a positive feeling among the devotees.

Latter in the evening famous singer Kailash Kher performed at Sakchi gurudwara ground and enthralled the devotees.
