Swapan Sett:Kolkata violinist performs to raise money for ailing wife

Swapan Sett, a 71-year-old violinist from Kolkata, is on a mission to raise money for his ailing wife, a cancer patient. She is under treatment at the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai.

Sett travels across the country, plays violin at public places and collects money to achieve his target. At the same time, he promotes classical music among youngsters. He performs at restaurants, hotels and other places. He has been able to generate money by selling CDs containing 24 tracks of melodious violin recital.

I talked to him and find him true artist at heart. He believes in sending CD's and his paintings to his cause supporters. He is a simple man and has no email or social media presence.

You can send check or letters and he would be happy to reciprocate in whatever way he can. For authenticity look at the end of this note.

Swapan Sett/ Poornima Sett
74/F, Balaram Dey Street

Dear Supporters,

I am Ankita from Milaap. I had a talk with Mr. Swapan Sett today regarding his wife, Poornima's health. He has shared his gratitude to all of you.

His wife was diagnosed with cancer 15 years back and the treatment is still continuing. Earlier, she was undergoing treatment at Sterling
Hospital but now she is shifted to Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.

"Travelling at this age is a little difficult but I have to take care of my wife and cannot leave this responsibility on someone else", he said,
when asked how does he manage so many things at once. The good news is she is recovering fast except for the regular medical checkups.


Thank you so much for your support and prayers.
