Alok Das Gupta said, ‘We humans are social beings. We depend on each other for our survival. The COVID-19 outbreak has forced people to change their lifestyles. Online programmes can help artistes connect with the audience and provide must-needed respite and recreation in this time of crisis. I thank Bangladesh Ganasangeet Samannay Parishad for arranging this online event.’
‘Music can inspire people during crises. The COVID-19 outbreak has forced us to practice hygiene and maintain social distancing. As programmes at public venues have been cancelled, we are organising online events to help artistes connect with the music lovers amid this crisis. Besides, online programmes provide aspiring artistes a platform to showcase their talent. We will organise more shows in the future,’ said Manjar Chowdhury Sweet.
