Awarding D. Litt and Doctorate degrees to renowned personalities and celebrities of India and abroad, maestros of music/dance/instruments, social workers and budding talents is another praiseworthy activity of Hindustan Arts and Music Society India. One of the most memorable moments of my life was when HAMS awarded D.Litt to classical flautist honourable Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasiaji, Hon’ble Pt, Jasrajji, Pt. Anup Jalotaji, Pt. Nayan Ghosh ji, Guru Gajendra Pandaji, and others. In August 2018, at Mumbai, HAMS was blessed by many of these great personalities whose company or even darshan was a dream for many people in the world of Music, Dance and Arts. Thousands of students appear in the examination of Dance, Song, Art and Recitation every year in India and somewhat ten countries abroad from the institutes affiliated under HAMS.
HAMS has been looking forward to establish MUSIC UNIVERSITY in India, most probably in Madhya Pradesh (Hoshangabad) that would be a milestone in cultural development and advancement in INDIA. Research work in folk songs, dances, imparting education free of cost to physically disabled persons, awarding scholarship on merits, organizing competitions and conferences on National and International Levels, implementing schemes and programmes of Art and Music in Central and State Governments are some leading activities done by HAMS. Noble efforts, honest approach, sincere planning and egoless attitude are the key words for HAMS. A solemn company of Pt. Prosenjit Poddar the Secretary of HAMS has made it possible for me to serve Music and Art with full vigor and enthusiasm. Pt. Poddar’s devotion, foresightedness, clarity in vision and tireless efforts will definitely give new heights to Hindustan Arts and Music Society in the coming years.
