Today, they will be performing at the 100 Pipers Billion Hands concert in Mumbai. Proceeds from the show will go towards rehabilitating the victims. A comprehensive web-based platform, www.abillionhands.com, is supported by Network18, and urges ordinary citizens to come together and express their anger and anguish over the events of the last week.

The idea is to provide a cathartic experience and debate on how each of us can work constructively towards making a difference. From facilitating donations to encouraging citizen activism, billionhands aims to be the voice of the people.

Collective voice
Commenting on the launch of the website, Rishi Khiani, COO, Web18, said “A billionhands.com isn’t only about the Mumbai terror attacks, it’s about providing a platform for change where we can channel the collective voice we have towards ensuring change.”

Speaking on the concert Farhad Wadia, CEO, E18, said, “We are much obliged to both Jethro Tull and Shankar for agreeing to perform at this concert. It’s important that we use this platform to spread the word of peace and harmony.”
