Global post-event feedback for Hope 2020 via different media

It indeed was a great feeling being united on a global platform for a cause, to make a difference for the motherland. The success of the program tells the story of the tremendous background effort, sincerity and meticulous planning. Congratulations to each one of you involved .It was a highly appreciative gesture to include the overseas Bengali Associations on your platform. Sincere appreciation. – Jayati B. Maitra - Bangiya Parishad Qatar

Big congratulations to you and the team on the success of the first night. I was actually up watching last night. Great show and well done. - SuranjanSom - The Global Bengali and Stay a[LIVE] Concerts) – UK

Very good distribution model using BSS and RS. I am sure you have the list for musicians and technicians for distribution. I was really worried about Bengal Chief Minister Relief Fund. Normally those funds never reaches the needy people and is used for party works. We will surely donate - Mulund Mumbai (Facebook)

Hope 2020 was a huge success. It was such a fantastic event with stars and celebrities performing on the same stage. It must have been a huge effort. Hats off to CAB and NABC combining efforts with NRI organizations across the world. Great to see you care so deeply about your motherland and donated generously for India and Bengal. – Tapan Misra, Senior Advisor, Indian Space Research Organization, ISRO

জুনের শেষ থেকেই দেশজুড়ে করোনার দাপট বাড়ছে। বাংলার অবস্থাও ভালো নয়। করোনা আর উম্পুনের চোটে বিধ্বস্ত বাংলার বিভিন্ন এলাকা। তাই দেশের মানুষের পাশে দাঁড়াতে এবার বলিউড এবং বাংলার গানের বিশিষ্ট শিল্পীরা জোটবদ্ধ হচ্ছেন। উদিত নারায়ণ, শঙ্কর মহাদেবন, কুমার শানু, অলকা ইয়াগ্নিক, বাবুল সুপ্রিয়, অনুপ জালোটা, কবিতা কৃষ্ণমূর্তি, হরিহরণ, ডালের মেহেন্দিরা থাকছেন। আবার বাংলা থেকে উষা উত্থুপ, রাঘব চট্টোপাধ্যায়, রূপঙ্কর বাগচী, অন্তরা চৌধুরী, শ্রাবণী সেন, শম্পা কুণ্ডু, ইমন চক্রবর্তীর মতো বহু শিল্পী গান গাইবেন। জুলাইয়ের তিন, চার, পাঁচে ইউটিউব চ্যানেলে দেখতে পাবেন এই কনসার্ট। গ্লোবাল স্ট্রিমিং টাইম রাত ন’টা। ভারতে কনসার্ট শুরু ভোর সাড়ে ছ’টা থেকে। তারিখ জুলাই ৪,৫,৬। করোনার চোটে বাতিল হয়েছে এ বছরের নর্থ আমেরিকান বেঙ্গলি কনফারেন্স। তবে দমতে নারাজ কর্তৃপক্ষ। এমন কনসার্টের মাধ্যমে তাঁরা বাংলার মানুষের কাছে ত্রাণ পৌঁছে দিতে বদ্ধপরিকর। ইতিমধ্যেই টলিউডের টেকনিশিয়ানদের মুখেও হাসি ফোটাতে উদ্যোগী হয়েছে এনএবিসি। - Ei Samay (Facebook)

This is a great initiative to support Bengal people. We would like donate but it’s very unclear to us that ‘How the funds will be distributed (distribution model) and will reach to the needy people”. Can anyone from NABC core team respond and provide the details - Mulund Mumbai (Facebook)

It's a great idea that NABC thought of arranging this online program this year. Usually the budget for NABC every year is more than $1 Million (Tickets and corp sponsors) and more than 90% is spent for renting the venue, pay the artists and all other associated expenses - Dilip Som (YouTube)

How exciting, love the count down!!! FINALLY, the wait is over - Madhumita Sen (YouTube)
