Mumbai | Tuesday, Jun 30 2009 IST
Palak Mauchhal, who at the age of six, collected funds for a noble cause, heart operation of downtrodden kids, by singing on stage, is now set to inspire school students.
Her story is being featured in Maharashtra's moral science text books.
In a bid to inspire seventh class students, the Maharashtra government's education department has decided to publish her contributions, her mother Mrs Amita Muchhal told UNI here today.
Palak was already given space in 'Jeet Apki', a book by noted management guru Shiv Khera.
At the age of 17, Palak has so far, collected Rs 1.71 crore from 1,460 stage performances across the world in 14 languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil, Kannada and Sanskrit, to finance surgeries of 338 children while 509 were still in waiting.
The singer had her name registered in Guinness Book of World records and Limca Book of World Records. Palak said, ''a poor family had approached my family to help their son's heart operation. I did a stage performance to generate funds. Since then I have been singing for such needy young heart patients''. Mrs Muchhal said in a bid to carve niche in music industry, her daughter was learning music from noted teacher S N Mishra for the past two years in Mumbai. ''She did playback singing in 13 Bollywood movies and was selected among five prominent personalities of India by the BBC and Star Gold channels,'' she added.
Palak also took part in Salman Khan's show 'Dus ka Dum' recently and her episode will be aired on Sony television shortly.
