Alive Indians band to dedicate performance to Uri attack victims
New Delhi, Sep 26 (IANS) Alive Indians, a collaborative music band of popular Hindi Folk rock band Aurko Live and Bandish, will dedicate a forthcoming performance to the country’s unsung heroes, especially the Indian soldiers who lost their lives in the recent Uri attack in Jammu and Kashmir.
The band will perform as part of the fifth SHRM India Annual Conference and Exposition 2016, to be held September 29-30, on the theme ‘Dare-A bold new HR’ at Hotel Taj Palace here. Their performance is a highlight of the gala awards night of the event, and it also assumes significance in the light of the Uri attack, in which 18 soldiers lost their lives.
Alive Indians, along with Bengaluru-based NGO Unsung Heroes that works for the welfare of ex-servicemen, will also dedicate a song to Indian soldiers and bravehearts.
Supratiek Ghosh, founder and lead singer, Band Aurko Live and Alive Indians, said in statement: “Alive Indians is proud to be associated with SHRM India to honour the unsung heroes who are our real heroes because they represent an institution like the Indian Army and sacrifice their today so that we have a secure tomorrow.
“Any contribution from our side will be small in the eyes of their sacrifice. We wish to make India Alive with music and on September 29, we will, through our music, try to wipe the pains of these heroes.”
Alive Indians is the brainchild of Ghosh and Christopher Powell, founder of the band Bandish, who despite living in different parts of the country, shared the common dream of creating something unique and different in music.
