Nepali singer, Kumar Kancha, has lost his battle against spinal-cord tumor on January 17, 2011. Monday morning’s heart attack took his life in the hospital. He was being treated in SL Raheja Hospitalm, Mahim West in Mumbai, India for the last seven months.
Kumar Kancha, although being a famous singer with songs in more than 100 Nepali movies, more than 1000 songs in 25 different Indian languages in his credits, was in desperate needs of funds during his treatment. Worldwide fund raise events were organized all over the world. Famous Nepali actress Namrata Shrestha organized a concert for the fundraise, raising record breaking amount of about Rs. 300,000. All the attempts were praiseworthy but, it is very sad that, these attempts couldn’t save the veteran singer.
Can’t artists be insured for health and benefits? I hope, the concerned people will think on that direction in the coming days.
xNepali team offers condolence to Kancha’s family and well wishers and wish his soul rest in peace.
