Although this music is focused solely towards the furtherance of humanitarian welfare, I am happy that this work has struck a chord everywhere with music lovers. My fervent attempts have always been to keep the world in peace and harmony. The main idea behind this musical journey is to pull people away from the negativity creeping into society. It proves that popular music can work as a catalyst for social good.”
