Eknath Panth a guide who managed the trip for Lopamudra Mitra and her musician friends in Nepal, experienced a great loss due to the massive earthquake. Lopamudra said, “It was a plan to support Eknath. He became a friend during our trip in Nepal. I felt very upset to know about his loss. It’s a very small contribution meant for him. I requested PRSI to initiate this concert that we could support him mainly.”
