UNESCO and Sounds of Silence - Voices United - The Nation’s Anthem of Hope

UNESCO New Delhi and Sounds of Silence in partnership with Presenting Sponsor DUKES, Wynk Music and Magic Bus is launching Voices United on 28th August.


“UNESCO New Delhi is delighted to partner with Metalloid Productions, in this initiative. The Preamble to the Constitution of UNESCO states that ‘since wars begin in the minds of men and women, it is in the minds of men and women that the defences of peace must be constructed’. Therefore, in times of constraints and restrictions on our daily routines, we hope that this music will encourage the people to come together to face the current COVID 19 pandemic with valour. Eric Falt, Director of UNESCO New Delhi


Dukes and UNESCO are the driving force behind Voices United - a contemporary and multi-lingual version of an old classic produced by Metalloid Productions to instil a sense of community, restore hope and raise funds for our charity partner Magic Bus, towards their Crisis Recovery programme in India. Funds raised will help restore incomes of 2,00,000 families and ensure 300,000 children stay in school, complete their education, and get better employment opportunities.


Anil Srinivasan, Deepak Pandit, Haricharan, Javed Ali, Karunya, Raghu Dixit, Rasika Shekar, Sathyaprakash, Shillong Chamber Choir, Shilpa Rao, Shweta Mohan, Soham, Taanya Kalsi and Usha Uthup will be singing this track with 8 languages - Hindi, English, Bengali, Khasi, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil.


“As we battle economic challenges, their emotional impact and the dark uncertainties of Covid 19, we want music to offer a ray of hope as well as faith in our strength as a nation that stands united cutting across all lines, all differences to fight this.” Mr. Ravinder Agarwal, Managing Director, Dukes India.


Since the past few months, Dukes has been unwavering in their solidarity with the nation. Whether it was each of their employees contributing a day’s salary to the PM Cares Fund, donating blood or distributing free biscuits to frontline healthcare workers and feeding stranded migrants, every act has been an affirmation of their mission. Of spreading joy with foods that create joy.


“Independent India hasn’t faced a challenge as big as we have in the last few months. The pandemic, the economy crashing, the migrants-crisis, the possibility of war, have left us all in a dejected place. We pro- duced Voices United to lift the nation’s mood and make it the Nation’s Anthem of Hope! We thank the artists, our sponsor Dukes India and partner UNESCO New Delhi for trusting us and playing a key role in bringing this project to life.” Pritish Kollati, Chairman Managing Director, Metalloid Productions


With the majority of world still under lockdown, content consumption has primarily shifted to digital plat- forms. More people across all geographies will be able to access Voices United for hope and to support the initiative. Music is one of the most accessible forms of stress relievers and mood boosters. It gives an oppor- tunity to listeners to collectively make a difference to lives while staying distanced and that is what this ini- tiative aims to accomplish.

Mr Atul Kumar Tiwari, Additional Secretary, Ministry of I&B, GoI said that media & entertainment industry has tremendous potential to contribute to the growth of the Indian economy. If can generate direct and indirect employment opportunities for the students. “The National Education Policy delivers equal importance to performing arts, which will provide a new thrust to the education scenario in the country and give the media and entertainment industry its due importance,” he noted.


Ms TCA Kalyani, Managing Director, NFDC, GoI said, “We are in process of approving the proposal for the champion services sector where incentives will be provided for co-produced films in India and foreign films shot in India." Speaking on skill development, she said, “NDFC has been organizing technical workshops in schools in south India and multimedia training is being provided to children with special needs as well. We are trying to explore wider opportunities for students in the media and entertainment sector.”


Mr Subhash Ghai, Founder & Chairman, Whistling Woods International, said that the National Education Policy has given a new breather to the country’s education system. The media and entertainment industry, he said provides on the job training and there's a huge demand for skilled professionals.  He further mentioned that the need of the hour is to identify local talents and promote local stories of India and thinking beyond the obvious is the key to succeed in this industry.


Dr Ashish Kulkarni, Founder, Punnaryug Artvision Pvt Ltd, said, “The new education policy will make India a global leader but there's a need for innovative courses in the rural area as the basic inputs of skills comes from rural India.”

Asian Paints launches a new service to create the home of your dreams


Called ‘Beautiful Homes Service’, this end-to-end service offers a convenient and hassle-free experience to those wanting to design their homes

Pune, August 26, 2020: The new normal of living primarily at home has people rediscovering the love for their home and personal space. The Indian consumer has always had a very emotional relationship with their home, making it not just a functional space but an expression of their personality and values. In the current context this relation has only amplified further. Asian Paints, India’s largest paint and décor company, has always aimed at being an integral part of this home-making emotion. Taking this into account, Asian Paints launches a new, convenient and hassle-free service that enables people to transform their homes the way they want. Asian Paints’ Beautiful Homes Service is an exclusive end-to-end solution that provides consumers a personalized interior design service with professional execution to create their dream home their way.

The journey to the creation of Beautiful Homes Service began several years ago when Asian Paints first segued into products other than paint, like Sleek brand of kitchens and the bath ware range. In order to better understand consumers and be part of their décor conversations, Asian Paints also launched, a content and design editorial website, almost four years ago. Today, is a community of close to a million followers and subscribers. The site’s design coverage and discussions have ensured that Asian Paints is able to communicate directly and hear their consumers. These diverse efforts to become a more intrinsic part of the Indian homemaking process culminates today in the launch of Beautiful Homes Service.

Mr. Amit Syngle, MD and CEO, Asian Paints Limited said, “While Consumers today diligently pursue the creation of their dream home, seeking out that which reflects who they are, unfortunately they are left to contend with templatized designs. Furthermore, the new normal has encouraged many consumers to engage with their homes and spaces in different ways. Homes have turned into offices, gyms, classrooms, and much more. This eclectic use of living spaces has further amplified the need for personalization in home design. At Asian Paints, it is our mission to not only empower the consumer to dream but to also bring those dreams to life. The Beautiful Homes Service will help people transform their homes in their way without worry.”

The Beautiful Homes Service has been launched in nine key cities across India to provide a personalized and professional interior design experience to consumers. Beautiful Homes Service has undertaken a top-notch safety protocol during the COVID times for consumers as well. Asian Paints has also released a campaign with two digital films for this service.
