Why Swara Sampada?
There are many non-profit music groups doing wonderful work in their own ways. Then why this organisation?
1. Firstly, because it is meant to forward a certain mission - of encouraging those who never sang before, or had stopped singing, to start singing. Very few organisations would take the trouble of doing this.
2. Secondly, people are forever seeking audiences for their singing. Hardly anyone wants to encourage audiences to sing for themselves, and for each other. Swara Sampada seeks to bring earlier audiences to the stage, and make them realise that they too can sing.
3.Thirdly, there are many critics in this field, whose remarks can destroy music talents. In Swara Sampada criticism is sparingly offered, if at all, and only in a constructive manner. It believes more in appreciation, which gets the best out of singers. And cooperation, which helps each other to improve. Appreciation and cooperation are not just words to be mouthed. They are principles to live by. And Swara Sampadites do it all the time.
4. Fourthly, mistakes are pardoned, though not encouraged. Improvement is encouraged. The positive alone is accented upon.
5. Fifthly, it believes in a fraternity of music lovers. Swara Sampada is not just a group, it is an organisation. Already Swara Sampada Chapters are getting formed all over India, and soon the world too. The instant bond that developes between music lovers transcends all boundaties of caste, class, religion, even nationality.
6. Finally, Swara Sampada will carry the message of music, brotherhood and peace to all peoples everywhere. In a world interested in building boundaries, Swara Sampada seeks to construct bridges.
