The beauty of music and writing is tragically seen as just something people do merely for fun. Sadly, there aren’t many platforms where they can learn, sharpen their skills, and get better at it. While the elusive means to reach broader audiences remains a distant dream. Consequently, to sustain themselves, these individuals are forced to let go of their innate talents, driven to embrace alternative means of livelihood. The cruel absence of recognition and pathways ruthlessly kills their creative essence, leaving their boundless skills cruelly untapped.
In a concerning example from Nikhil Kamath’s episode 8 of “WTF is going on in the world of content,” it has been highlighted that despite their creative contributions, musicians, singers, and lyricists in India often face inadequate IP rights recognition, leading to meager earnings. This underscores the need to perform at weddings and corporate shows. Seven out of ten richest celebrities in the World are musicians but India doesn’t have one in a thousand.
The podcast also talks about Bollywood not kicking and the need for a new model which incentives writers in this country as writers are the backbone and there is no business without them.
