So how are doctors beating the Covid blues? Well, here’s one way. Over the lockdown weekends, medics in Kolkata have been performing with their counterparts in the UK at e-concerts, in the memory of Bollywood superstars.
The medical profession globally is facing a huge challenge, both physically and mentally, with the unprecedented Covid-19.

Essex Indians, a registered charity based in Essex, UK has been working relentlessly to keep the medical fraternity and the community rejuvenated with weekend shows.

They have conducted tributes to the Bollywood geniuses, Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajpoot whom we lost recently and also to Kakaji (Rajesh Khanna) on his eighth death anniversary.

The virtual concerts (Rajesh on Sunday, Sushant Singh Rajput on July 11, Irrfan on June 27 and Rishi Kapoor on June 6) through Streamyard app and streamed to Facebook Live and YouTube Live have been keeping the doctors busy in the weekends.

Hosted and coordinated by Dr Anirban Mandal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in NHS, UK and Dr Arpita Ray, Gynaecologist and Infertility lead of Bourne Hall clinic, Essex, along with the doctors from Kolkata, Essex and other parts of the world had more than 40 performers from India, Bangladesh, Australia, UK and USA.

The e-shows refreshed the virtual audience for 6-7 hours with music, dances, acts and discussions by distinguished guests like filmmakers Kamaleswar Mukherjee, Buddhadeb Dasgupta, Bedabrata Pain, Dibyendu Bhattacharya and Sohini Dasgupta.

Dr Queen Aditya, Gynaecologist from Kolkata, who herself is a regular performer in the concerts, said “ These virtual concerts certainly keep us relaxed in the weekends after stormy weeks in the hospital and provide the oxygen to keep calm and carry on the following week . “Dr Arnab Gupta, who heads the Saroj Gupta Cancer Research institute, Kolkata, is also a regular performer.

Dr Amitabha Chanda, Neurosurgeon from Dhaka said, “Very nice feeling to sing with my medical colleagues all over the world while paying tribute to the irreparable losses in the film industry – a mixed feeling indeed”.

Dr Arpita Ray, trustee of Essex Indians said, “Generation next all over the world benefitted immensely learning about Indian culture and values”.

Dr Anirban Mandal, trustee and general secretary of Essex Indians thanked all artists around the world for spending quality time together enhancing the global team bonding and said, “We will continue the weekend shows in 2020 to boost the morale of our medical colleagues and all other professionals”.
