A few days ago in Gujarat, a bhajan performance by Gujarati folk singer Kirtidan Gadhvi in Navsari was showered with cash close to Rs 40–50 lakh. The event was organized by Swami Vivekananda Eye Temple Trust to raise money for a new eye hospital. The attendees showered the singers with notes worth Rs 10 to 500. Gadhvi estimated that the entire collection was worth over Rs 50 lakh.
“People shower Rs 10, 20, 50, and 100 notes amounting to lakhs of rupees every day at bhajan programmes,” said Gadhvi, adding that the programme received donations of around Rs 40-50 lakh.
