The Humming Notes is an idea to bring together the best of all the fields in an out of box manner through some interesting write-ups. The purpose is to keep readers informed about the latest trends and happenings. They constantly strive to surprise their readers with some unusual features. We got in touch with the team to explore more about what this platform offers, here is it for you:
Tell us how it all started – where did your vision for The Humming Notes come from?
Ambica has been a journalist for more than 15 years and Supriya wanted to get into creative writing. She had been working with a government related subject earlier in the media. We wanted to do something more than the regular stuff that was coming out in the market, something more in-depth and creative as well as informative. As Dhruv is doing his MBA, we roped him in to help us handle the operations, marketing and other technical stuff. And sitting in a café in Connaught Place, mulling over our cups of coffee and doughnuts, we came up with The Humming Notes.

How difficult has the journey been? Any stories you would like to share?
Till now the road has been quite smooth except for one or two speed-breakers. Once we were invited for a food review and the person concerned didn’t turn up at the last moment. It was a disappointing experience, but not a deterrent. We learnt to be more careful with our appointments.

We shall be part of a global network.
If not for The Humming Notes, where would you be now?
