I won�t mind entering politics for a cause: Kalpana Patwari


Jamshedpur, March 26: Renowned Bhojpuri playback singer Kalpana Patwari today said she was ready to enter politics to serve the people if she gets an opportunity to do so. She said she would work for the promotion and development of art and Bhojpuri language if she enters politics. She however said that entering politics could never be her sole agenda.

Patwari spoke her mind on a visit to steel city to perform during a programme. Replying to a question on Hinduism, she said that Ram Mandir should be constructed in Ayodhya as it was the place of worship and one of the most sacred places for Hindus.

The Bhojpuri singer paid a visit to the Manohar chaat outlet of Madhuri Dixit Nene�s fan Pappu Sardar at Sakchi and snacked on a plate of chaat at the well-known city shop. Her fans made a beeline at the shop to get a selfie with the singer and her autograph. Patwari thanked Pappu for his hospitality and invited him to come to Mumbai.

The talented singer said she had made a video album on the centenary celebrations of Champaran Satyagraha upcoming on 14th April this year. �This album is based on the miseries of farmers prior to Satyagrah movement and the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. Both the Central and Bihar governments are organizing a programme to celebrate the occasion. My album is a humble tribute to Mahatma Gandhi,� she said.

Patwari said she was focusing on singing more and more folk songs in Bollywood. �I have sung folk songs in 30 languages including Bhojpuri and Assamese.

For me music is a medium of education and communication. I am trying my best to do something for the development of local languages with the inspiration of Bhikhari Thakur and Bhupen Hajarika,� she said.
