To the delight of all the guests present dinner was served promptly on time in the beginning of the evening and was followed by live 15-piece orchestra performance which transported everyone into the past, with their wonderful ditties to the popular background scores of yesteryear. The singers bringing these memorable songs to life were Salman Alvi, Waseem Baig, Karam Abbas, Rosemary, Ashfaq Hussain and Wahab Khan. Accompanying these evergreen numbers were their video screenings from the movie in which they were sung, adding to the nostalgic magic of the evening.

A documentary was shown to highlight the work after which Dr Zarine Mogal gave a vote of thanks. The music programme then resumed, the evening ending with the announcement of door prizes and lucky dip draws.

It may be noted that National Epilepsy Centre is an NGO designed exclusively for epilepsy care. It provides holistic management to all patients, especially those from low socio-economic strata with epilepsy irrespective of their religion, caste or creed.
