The first season of Ever Last (June August 2020) focused on building a community and platform- where seniors can relax, interact with the young generation, and at the same time receive information on how to stay healthy and happy during the lockdown. The sessions were all about getting seniors involved and helping them spend time on recreational activities like music, art & literature, and make some time for exercise through youngsters.

Speaking about The Everlast Season 2, Jagadish Ramamoorthy, Co-founder & Director, Alserv said, We received great appreciation from our customers and their families for The Ever Last Season 1. For the second edition, we thought we could plan something special as its the Margazhi month - a time when the elderly like to attend concerts and sabhas. As that option isnt available due to the pandemic, we thought it would be good if we can bring that sabha experience to their homes. We have an excellent line up of Carnatic artists and musicians to create the most compelling and memorable expererience this Margazhi season that is open not only to Alservs consumers but to the public as well.

The sessions would go live at 7 PM every day on Alservs Facebook and Instagram Pages starting December 11th.
