The SONY TV just aired the ‘Rock On For Humanity’ show. The purpose of the show was to raise money for the homeless kids in Bihar. How? The audience were asked to send SMS. 😐

Frankly speaking, I don’t get it. How can anyone dance and sing to raise money for the homeless? Agreed, the show raised about Rs. 4 crore, but I believe lot of money was spent on organizing the show. It would have been more effective had the money spent on show was spent on helping the homeless.

Look at it. I want to help someone. I can’t go and help in person. So what I do – I dance and sing. I shout. I scream. I ask people to send SMS. The mobile company then, without taking its own share, gives all the money to the needy. It makes sense. Huh?

But, lot of ‘young & peppy’ people did help the poor by sending SMSes and dancing with the big stars from Bollywoood. It will take me some time to be in the mainstream.

    What is the problem in organising a show and raising money?

    “It would have been more effective had the money spent on show was spent on helping the homeless.”

    Tell this to an entrepreneur, that instead of investing money in a business or making a movie (so that he can earn money from it and live a good life), he should use the money itself to live a good life… effective?

    Presumably, the money that went in the show would have been lesser than that raised from it. That’s the point in conducting a show with the money you have and make more money for your cause.
