A brain child of entrepreneur Ms. Shomu Mitra proclaims “Basically Creative Connection’s helps brighten the lives of under privileged people coming from lower socio- economic conditions by giving them the opportunity to grow holistically and bloom in life. We are starting a new chapter, however we know the journey will be so tough but I am sure it will be satisfying. Our dream is to see that every child, beginning with Maharashtra and then spreading to the remotest part of India gets quality education and a holistic development”

“Help people become motivated by guiding them to the source of their own power” a group of creative people from different fields of art and music came together as active members of the group to set up a maiden venture- Creative Connection’s. Creative Connection’s to work with grassroots initiatives for effecting positive changes in the lives of underprivileged children, their families and communities.
Creative Connection’s underscores the fact that helping is not simply a matter of dispersing money but of making a deep, long-term commitment and casting a hard eye on results. Charity is just not writing cheques & not being engaged but Philanthropy is being engaged, not only with your resources but getting people & yourself really involved & doing things that haven’t been done before.
For an emerging country like India, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself, and their education is the cornerstone of this progress. But education for children cannot be achieved without ensuring the welfare of the family – a child can go to school regularly only when the family, particularly the mother is healthy and empowered; the family has decent livelihood opportunities and a steady income.
Realizing this, Creative Connection’s, beginning in the corridors of education, will soon adopt a life cycle approach with intensive programmes focused on family health, livelihood and women empowerment, which address the needs of children, their families and the larger community.

Talk on Indian epics and tales from lesser known cultures and continents at India Habitat Centre...

The Katha Project will be organizing a talk on Tracking the Epics on February 19th (Friday) 2016 at Amaltas in the India Habitat Centre, Lodhi road, New Delhi by Mythologist Utkarsh Patel and the author of the book “Shakuntala- The Woman Wronged”.

The talk will discuss the two most popular Indian epics, Ramayan and Mahabharat and the many versions which exists across the Indian sub-continent.

Talk On Indian Epics (Copy)

Registrations are free and on a first come first serve basis. The talk will begin at 7:00 p.m. and guests are expected to be seated by 6:45 p.m. Those who wish to attend can send an email to

About the talk: The Ramayana tradition has enjoyed a unique popularity throughout the subcontinent of South Asia (comprising the modern states of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka) and beyond – for versions of the tale have flourished in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Though it is not the same for Mahabharata, probably due to its sheer size and complexity, Mahabharat too has had its share of versions, especially with reference to certain episodes if not the whole text. The talk will aim to capture this diversity and will bring forth the many interesting versions and tales from lesser known cultures and continents through an hour long interactive session.

About The Katha Project: The Katha Project is an experimental project in the area of comparative mythology and ancient history. The Project’s aim is to bring mythology and history to life through the art of storytelling and narration. This is mainly through talks, debates and interactive sessions about ancient ruins, places, beliefs and art forms with mythological or historical significance. The Katha Project has held various sessions with eminent authors, archaeologists etc. in Mumbai. With the talk on tracking the epics, The Katha Project will launch its base in Delhi.

I was wondering if there is a possibility of doing a pre-event story around the same. Mr. Utkarsh Patel, corporate-professional-turned-mythologist, author of “Shakuntala – The Woman Wronged” and professor of Comparative Mythology at the Mumbai University who has qualifications in Mythology, both Indian and World from Mumbai University will be happy to share further insights on the topic.

Talking about the video, Bejoy said, “It’s got the fire starter quality to it. I deliberately wanted to get out of a narrative based approach and try and do something completely different in the treatment. The style and the grandness was planned to give the video a wider appeal”.

On this occasion, Babul Supriyo, who has not only conceptualised the song but has also composed the melody,  expressed his delight and happiness in  working with the legendary .  actor.  “While we were dubbing the other 2 songs it was Hema ji’s enthusiasm that made this duet happen!   She is an absolute sport and surprised all of us with her zeal to try new things.  It was a challenge to get the right direction, both lyrically and conceptually, because I didn’t want it to be a regular duet song.  I am very happy with the outcome and extremely grateful to Hema ji for pouring her heart into it.  My sincere appreciation to the entire team of Saregama for making this happen so very beautifully.  I am sure the album aptly titled Dream Girl and releasing on the eve of Valentines Day will make many a heart  beat faster, for love and with love”

At the launch, Hema Malini said, “Art and entertainment is what keeps me going; it is a part of me now. I had not explored my singing talent before and I am therefore very excited to showcase this side of me to the audience. Hope they continue to shower their love on me as they have done over the past years.”

Mr. Vikram Mehra, the Managing Director of Saregama on comments “We are proud to associate with Babul ji and Hema ji in this prestigious endeavour”
