The Indian Association of Palliative Care and the Shankar Mahadevan Academy – Nirvana, began collaborating in January, 2022, to present the palliative care community with a series of free virtual evening of harmonies known as ‘Singing for the Stars’.

This initiative aims to provide our ‘Stars’, our palliative patients and their caregivers, and our healthcare professionals, each of who is a star in themselves, with free virtual musical evenings via Zoom, to help them unwind, relax, and to of course bring a smile on everyone’s face who has tuned in.

Since it’s inception, palliative care patients and their caregivers from across the country, have been participating in these musical events by singing along, dancing along and cheering for one another, all while forgetting their pain and other distressing symptoms, even if it is only for a few hours. It been shared that for some palliative patients, participating in this initiative has been the last musical concert that they attended.
