Their objective is in sync with various healing techniques and practices to make people stress free however at odds vis-à-vis approach. At the helm of affairs of this group is Mukesh Shinde, a mechanical engineer and professor by profession, who is working with a local engineering institution here.

On being asked about the motive of this group Shinde said “We wanted to distress and humanise people’s lives as it has become highly mechanised. Given today’s fast-paced life, one has got oodles of stress in it. We perceive music as one of the best therapies to give vent to pent-up emotions. It helps relax frazzled nerves and muscles too. In addition to this, it also keeps mind focused and efficient.”

Being asked about the inspiration he said “Well, whether we believe it or not everyone love hooking to music because of its rejuvenating abilities and tremendous healing powers. It is evident from the fact that number of people sings in their bathrooms. Not only do we want bathroom singers, but also people irrespective of their age. He described it as a journey from “Mug to Mike”. He further added “We would like to offer them platform to showcase their skills and partner with us in making people’s life better”

On future plan, Shinde sounded optimistic as he said “Well, we have one branch in Bhopal, apart from our Ujjain head office branch. Soon, we will cover the entire country where every city will have our centre. Apart from this, we are also organising a singing event at ‘Vikram Kirti Mandir’ in Ujjain where all the family members of our singling club members will put on display their singing skills.”
