Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Bryan Adams will be coming to India in October for a multi-city tour, and says he is excited about performing in the “beautiful country” again.
This will be his fifth visit to the country. The gigs are lined up in support of the music veteran’s 21-track compilation “Ultimate”, which released in November last year. “Namaste India. At the onset I’d like to wish each one of you a very happy Independence Day. India is one of my favourite places in the whole world,” Adams said in a statement. “The love and generosity that I have experienced here is immense,” he added.
The tour will start with a concert in Ahmedabad on October 9 and move to Hyderabad (October 11), Mumbai (October 12), Bengaluru (October 13), before wrapping up in Delhi on October 14. The event is produced by ENIL and has partnered with Infibeam Digital Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. for the gig in Ahmedabad. “I am eternally grateful to ENIL for (giving me) the opportunity to perform again in this beautiful country,” added the Canadian rocker, who is known for his signature brand of feel-good rock and roll and big ballads like “(Everything I do) I do it for you”, “Summer of 69” and “Please forgive me”.

A couple of months ago, I visited Sassoon docks, mumbai's oldest fish market looking for St+art India's art project.
Alas, I was disappointed!
The art project had been shut down a long time ago, dejected I almost left, but thought might as well walk to the end of the pier to look out towards the sea.
As I was reaching the end, a couple of fishermen came up to me and asked me about the camera hung around my neck and I realised all was not lost.
I started talking with them about various things about their lifestyle and this is one case that hit me hard.
The fisherman in frame is 16 years old, said the elders who were busy tying nets together for their next expedition.
He lost his father a couple of years ago, his mother taught him the business, and he started working at the young age of 14.
He used to go out with the elder fishermen and help them fish initially but within a few months, he started going out on his own. He was the first person on the sea in the mornings and used to be ready to go out again a second time with the other fishermen. Working so hard, he manages to send both his sisters to school.
When I see this picture, it inspires me, to never procrastinate, to work harder than ever before and to appreciate the fragility and value of life. I have suffered setbacks of my own doing, mistakes I made, friendships I broke, time I lost and I hope in time, I might be able to redeem myself.
