AS THE PRESIDENT OF HAMS
It was a heavenly experience, when I held the position of the President of HAMS. HAMS is a worldwide organization of high ethics and aims to serve not to rule. HAMS is a great organization to promote Indian Culture and to support relevant traditions and customs in a global examination centre to serve mankind with imparting knowledge and conducting examinations of songs, instruments, dance and various arts. Sustaining a balance between culture and civilization HAMS is building bridges between countries and breaking barriers of narrowness and meanness.
CONSISTENT EFFORTS ALWAYS FRUCTIFY HAMS:-
It fulfils “Need of the Hour”, that is to establish healthy relations between persons of different countries through organizing programmes frequently. My visit to Thailand and Malaysia played a very crucial role in my life where I came to know how much Indian music and culture is welcomed in other parts of the world. Loved and respected by them, regular classes of Hindustani and Carnatic classical music in KualaLampur in Subhash Chandra Bose Auditorium and classical devotional songs in SAI MANDIR in Malaysia left me filled with pride for my beloved country India. Awarding D. Litt and Doctorate degrees to renowned personalities and celebrities of India and abroad, maestros of music/dance/instruments, social workers and budding talents is another praiseworthy activity of Hindustan Arts and Music Society India. One of the most memorable moments of my life was when HAMS awarded D.Litt to classical flautist honourable Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasiaji, Hon’ble Pt, Jasrajji, Pt. Anup Jalotaji, Pt. Nayan Ghosh ji, Guru Gajendra Pandaji, and others. In August 2018, at Mumbai, HAMS was blessed by many of these great personalities whose company or even darshan was a dream for many people in the world of Music, Dance and Arts. Thousands of students appear in the examination of Dance, Song, Art and Recitation every year in India and somewhat ten countries abroad from the institutes affiliated under HAMS.
HAMS has been looking forward to establish MUSIC UNIVERSITY in India, most probably in Madhya Pradesh (Hoshangabad) that would be a milestone in cultural development and advancement in INDIA. Research work in folk songs, dances, imparting education free of cost to physically disabled persons, awarding scholarship on merits, organizing competitions and conferences on National and International Levels, implementing schemes and programmes of Art and Music in Central and State Governments are some leading activities done by HAMS. Noble efforts, honest approach, sincere planning and egoless attitude are the key words for HAMS. A solemn company of Pt. Prosenjit Poddar the Secretary of HAMS has made it possible for me to serve Music and Art with full vigor and enthusiasm. Pt. Poddar’s devotion, foresightedness, clarity in vision and tireless efforts will definitely give new heights to Hindustan Arts and Music Society in the coming years.
