Ashish Patel, sarpanch of Kalwada village in the district, who organised the event said they collected money for Jalaram Manav Seva Trust, a charitable organisation, to help them buy an ambulance for the village.
The video shows devotees holding wads of notes. As the sprinkling continues, it creates a carpet of crisp brown, green and auburn notes. Even kids can be seen throwing money in the air. Soon the singer's harmonium is wrapped in notes.
The money is being collected simultaneously and a few men are seen segregating the notes based on their value. They also run the wads through a currency counting machine.
Folk singers being showered with cash are a common sight. In 2016, folk singers were showered with Rs 40 lakh at an event in Gujarat's Navsari district over a month after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation. In the same district, at another event, new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes were showered on a singer amid cash crunch crunch post notes ban.
