BHAMLA FOUNDATION’S WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY CELEBRATIONS 2019

Aaditya Thackeray, Sonu Sood, Jackie Shroff, Shaan, Sophie Choudry, Maniesh Paul, Karanvir Bohra, Anu Malik, Shiamak Davar, Vivek Goenka, Zarina Wahab, Aditya Pancholi, Emiway Bantai & Many Others From The Films, Social, Political & Business Fields Graced The Occasion

Air pollution in India is a serious issue, ranking higher than smoking, high blood pressure, child and maternal malnutrition, and risk factors for diabetes. In urban areas, most emissions come from vehicles and industry, whereas in rural areas, much of the pollution stems from biomass burning for cooking and keeping warm. In autumn and winter months, large scale crop residue burning in agriculture fields – a low cost alternative to mechanical tilling – is a major source of smoke, smog and particulate pollution. Air pollution increases the risk of heart diseases, causes allergies, bronchitis, asthama, contributes to the premature deaths of 2 million Indians every year, and is also responsible for causing mental health issues, including depression. The air pollution epidemic is evident all over the globe; animals have reportedly died after ingesting fumes and breathing in toxic, polluted air.
This World Environment Day, 2019, in India is being organized by Bhamla Foundation along with the Ministry of Environment and the United Nations Organization. With Beat Air Pollution as the theme of this year’s event, India is coming together to improve air quality and protect human health.
Bhamla Foundation, through its environment initiatives, is working towards curbing the menace of air pollution, keeping in line with the UNO initiative of ‘Beat Air Pollution’. Following the #BeatPlasticPollution song, ideated by Asif Bhamla, his foundation has come up with, yet another anthem. The #HawaAaneDe musical campaign was made a success by roping in many celebrities and influencers to carry out a message of air pollution threat, with Swanand Kirkire, Shaan and Rajkummar Rao making their presence felt among others.
Asif Bhamla, through Bhamla Foundation, had earlier set the thought in motion among the masses with the sapling plantation drive and make and use the paper bag initiative at the hands of Sanjay Dutt.
Besides Asif Bhamla, Meraj Husain and Saher Bhamla of Bhamla Foundation, Yuva Sena Chief Aaditya Thackeray, Sonu Sood, Jackie Shroff, Shaan, Sophie Choudry, Maniesh Paul, Karanvir Bohra, Anu Malik, Shiamak Davar, Vivek Goenka, Zarina Wahab, Aditya Pancholi, Emiway Bantai, Madhur Bhandarkar, Milind Deora, Ashish Shelar, Sachin Bhau Ahir, Ashok Kapoor, Parmeet Sethi and Archana Puran Singh, Edgard Kagan (Consul Gen of USA), Alok Kumar Choudhary (of SBI), Swanand Kirkire and many others from the films, social, political and business fields livened up the amphitheathre at Carter road, Bandra, and joined in the celebrations. Master of Ceremonies were Meraj Husain and Ruby Bhatia.
"We know how air pollution harms us, there is no excuse not to act. It threatens everyone from unborn babies to children walking to school, to women cooking over open fires. Remember, clean air is your right! Chal #HawaAaneDe," averred Akshay Kumar.
“Clean air is a basic human right. Together, let us pledge to make our lives and country pollution free. Chal #HawaAaneDe,” said Vicky Kaushal.
I am very proud to be associated with this initiative taken by the Ministry of Environment, United Nation, Bhamla Foundation and SBI on fighting air pollution. Clean air is what Nature has gifted us, and we’ve just made it worse,” shared Rajkummar Rao, “It’s high time we take it seriously.”
“Through the current year’s UN environment motto, we wish to inform and educate, not just the youngsters, but everyone,” imparted Shaan.
“We can produce anything in this world, from a pin to a plane. What we do not have is an instrument to produce natural oxygen. Natural oxygen comes from green plants. It’s time for all of us to be aggressive for more plantation of greenery,” expressed Ashish Shelar, MLA – Bandra West.
“Pollution is a hazard that the citizens of this country should really pay attention to. Small changes brought about by many of us will result in a very big change,” added Shankar Mahadevan.
Besides, Ayushmann Khurrana and Janhvi Kapoor have also recorded positive messages for Bhamla Foundation and The Ministry of Environment.
As the video rakes in more and more hits, the movement will gain momentum and awareness will spread among the masses. #HawaAaneDe song and campaign was created by the Bhamla Foundation in association with the Ministry of Environment, United Nations Organization as well as the entire film fraternity. As you see the peril is drawing closer and closer. It is not just an idea but a theoretical reality. Every warning about Global Warming is slowly getting true. It is also reported that unless mankind makes drastic changes in the coming years, the permanent damage because of environmental pollution will become inevitable.
Or as Asif Bhamla of Bhamla Foundation rightly put it, “I am glad that the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Devendra Fadnavis, members of the entertainment fraternity have come together with our Bhamla Foundation with a hope to make a lasting difference, so our sons and daughters can breathe air that won’t harm them. This is the time now, to make a difference, before the very air we breathe, kills us!”

We all felt so blessed,” shared Dr.Aneel Kashi Murarka, Founder – Ample Missiion.

Ample Missiion's Adivasi Welfare Mission

SCARFACE… HIGHLIGHTING THE LIVING DEATH OF ACID ATTACK VICTIMS

As you take a walkthrough of the Press Club, you see ‘scarred faces’ screaming out at you from their frozen frames, from Shirish Shete’s frames in his show titled ‘Scarface’. A veteran media photographer, who has been with the Press Trust of India for over two decades now, Shirish Shete has been dedicatedly shooting acid victim survivors for over half a decade.

India records the highest cases of acid attacks in the world with the worst conviction rates. As is often the case with other crimes against women, acid attacks victims are treated with official apathy and societal indifference. The victims are usually women aged between fourteen and thirty-five, and the attacks often the result of rejection of a marriage proposal or sexual advances; unable to bring enough dowry; for bearing a female child; for professional rivalry; for as petty a thing as having cooked a bad meal, so on and so forth. Often at times, men are also not spared from acid attacks.

The Press Club, overcrowded with enthusiasts, citizens and lensmen, remained silent as Shirish Shete spoke of the system being as much a mute spectator. “I have been shooting this project for over half a decade. And it is still unfinished. It began in Delhi, when I met these survivors and got entwined in their lives and then my documentation work began. Whenever I used to meet the victims, they used to tell me their stories, and there was a point where I had to tell them to stop because I couldn’t bear to hear them continue, the stories were so bad.”

The Chief Guests for the occasion were philanthropist Dr. Aneel Kashi Murarka who graced the evening with a group of acid attack survivors, supported by his organization Ample Missiion and Megha Patil, Ex Vice Chairperson of Mahila Arthik Vikas Mahamandal, Govt. of Maharashtra, Ex Member of State & Central Govt. Committee on Equal Remuneration For Women & Governing Council Member of Maharashtra United Nations Association.



“Nobody even wants to be next to them. These stories are not stories people want to hear. A photograph speaks a thousand words and with the right caption or accompanying the right story, it sensitizes society and raises questions. As a photojournalist, I’d be happy to have contributed in anyway whatsoever,” concluded Shirsh Shete.

On the occasion, the cover of Tezaab Tales, a coffee table book that highlights the alkaline truth behind the acid attack victims' lives. The photo documentary is by Shirish Shete, the text by Anusha Srinivasan Iyer and is being published by philanthropist Dr. Aneel Kashi Murarka of Ample Missiion.  

Shirish Shete, who is currently designated as the Chief Photographer with The Press Trust of India, has earlier worked with The Indian Express and Mid-Day, contributed to various magazines like Femina and Debonair among others; has travelled extensively around the globe with the Indian PM Narendra Modi, former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam, former Indian PM Manmohan Singh on their work tours and has previously exhibited in various galleries across India.

I am overcome with felicity today that Shri Amitabh Bachchan and the rest of the film industry has come forward to support me in this cause.”

Mukkti Cultural Hub has an auditorium capable of accommodating 378 people, 680 sq. ft. of  workshop space, 1000 sq. ft. of open terrace space, a 2500 sq. ft. dance studio. Every detail is taken care of, not just infrastructurally, but also ideologically, by providing State of The Art equipment, alongside wheelchair accessibility in all spaces.

Air pollution, the ‘silent killer’ that claims thousands of lives daily, has become a growing concern world over. It is primarily caused by the burning of fossil fuel, thereby leading to emissions, finally leading to air pollution as we know it today. Pollution has been around us for decades and it consequences can prove to be deadly. We have been unable to contain the dastardly aftermath of the growing menace. According to the United Nations Organization (UNO), approximately 4.2 million people die prematurely, as a result of exposure to ambient air pollution.

The anthem is written by National award-winning lyricist Swanand Kirkire. The song is set to voice by Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shankar Mahadevan, Vishal Dadlani, Sunidhi Chauhan and Ayushmann Khurrana among others. The anthem is an Asif Bhamla led Bhamla Foundation initiative. 

“The members of the entertainment fraternity have come together with our Bhamla Foundation with a hope to make a lasting difference, so our sons and daughters can breathe air that won’t harm them. This is the time now, to make a difference, before the very air we breathe, kills us! And hence the initiative,” averred Asif Bhamla, President – Bhamla Foundation. 

Bhamla Foundation, in the previous year, created the #BeatPlasticPollution anthem on the lines of United Nation’s ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ initiative. The trendy anthem based on the need to curb plastic usage as the name suggests, went viral on media, garnering a lot of traction. Bhamla Foundation, had earlier, also set the environment protection thought in motion through their sapling plantation drive.


More power to such initiatives!

The struggle came to an end when Nana Patekar, a celebrated actor in the Indian film industry, witnessed him live and told his assistant, Mr. Bipin Chunawala, Mann's father, “Mark my words. Your kid is going to be a star." Then, they decided to sponsor Mann for his music education.
During his time at MI, he was awarded as ‘The Best Player Of The Year’. He also has performances with renowned Jazz bass guitarist Marcus Miller to his credit! He has also played for Lars Deutsch, an Emmy award recipient and Oscar nominee, with International award winning artist Paloma Rush. He also played with Phrimaphaa Khornrojjachawin (nokphrima), a KPN Award winner'09, Thailand; Best singer in R&B genre in World Championship of Performing Arts 2016, 2nd price in International Festival White Night of Saint Petersburg and May Patcharapong, an internationally acclaimed bass player in a saxophone pub, Thailand. Due to which he did a drum clinic in Bangkok, Thailand in Chandrakasem Rajabhat University with nokphrima.
Currently, he is playing at Andrae Crouch’s church, often referred to as ‘the father of modern gospel music’ by contemporary Christians and gospel music professionals, with Pattie Howard as the music director, known for singing background for many major artists including Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Mary J Bilge, Brandy, Fantasia, Queen LaTifah, Madonna, Andrea Crouch, Michael Jackson, Curtis Siger, Lisa Stanfield, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Reba Rambo, Diana Ross among others. He is currently, also, the drummer for Arthur Menezes, ‘Gibson award/Albert King Award’ for best guitarist by the Blues Foundation (IBC 2018).
This has been the journey of a middle class Indian boy from playing for Gujarati Garba to Jazz, Blues, Funk and Gospel music. Truly, struggle comes to an end when someone like Nana Patekar holds your hand.
