HUM... Power of We!

HUM means “WE” in Hindi. The Organisation HUM is not about “You”, or “I”… it is about “US”!

It’s not about the ”ME” generation it is about the “WE” generation! It will try to deal with matters that concern us. The future of our kids, the nations and this planet Earth!!!


Why HUM?

For the last 3-4 years one question that kept haunting me was, “What am I doing to carry forward the great movement that Yo-Yo Ma has started in the form of The Silk Road Project?” Deep in my heart I wondered, "Wouldn’t it be great if I could start something in India? Make an ensemble in India and get my friends from the Silk Road Ensemble to come and share the musical treasures they have with the younger generation of musicians of India? Get my friends from all over to come and do similar sharing?"


Similar groups can be made in these different countries. Wu Tong already has one in China. Maybe one day these smaller ensembles can come together and carry the great movement of sharing and getting to know the commonalities in our cultures and traditions forward? Would it happen? We wouldn’t know till we have tried. Thus HUM!!!


Why HUM?


Well I think India is facing it’s greatest invasion in the form of television! No “Timur Lang” no Mongol or any foreign invader has probably wrecked more havoc in this country than what this present form of television is doing.


They came and could devastate and plunder areas that they could reach, but they never enjoyed the penetration that T.V. has today. It reaches the homes in almost the remotest parts of India, Unhindered and Unchallenged! Do I have to mention that the worth of most of the things presented is not even worth mentioning?


The only thing that matters are the 3 C’s,? Cricket, Cinema and Crime?
