Gen X would rather watch the movie than read the novel (and that if possible
on DVD, but we'll stick to the root), and that's cause for concern to many.
And when you've named yourself 'Book Of Hope', the irony is not lost on many.
Here is the Indian arm trying a kickstart.
The 'Book Of Hope', an international publishing house dealing with youth issues,
circulates its publications to nearly 79 countries, and has a branch office
at Faridabad (Haryana). With co-ordination by its local branch and the Manna
Full Gospel Church at Safilguda, the publishing house is, to create awareness
of itself, organizing a cultural program for the members of the YMCA and for
the common public.
"Shake the Nations" is a theater group comprising school and college children
from the US, and is basically into performing dramas, human videos (enacting
the lyrics of various songs) and skits. They will present a drama and a few
skits today. This group is on its vacation, and is coming to Hyderabad after
performing at a number of cities across India. The schedule of the group will
be known on the performing day.
A music group called "Clay" from Kolkata will perform next. The group has earlier
performed in Nepal, Bangladesh, the United States and Canada. This troupe is
a veteran of the field, and has been performing mainly at churches, singing
gospel songs. The members of "Clay", Thompson (bass guitarist), Darryl Lingwood
(rhythm guitarist and vocalist), James (lead guitarist), Sherman Jackson (Keyboards),
Dayanidhi Rao (lead vocalist), Paul David (drummer), and Philip and Shanti (husband
and wife, vocalists), will present around 10 songs today. Some of the ones that
they are going to perform here are "Change The World", "Hey I'm Believer",
"Picking Up The Pieces" and "Count On Me".
