When love and kindness speak a universal language

Published: December 27, 2015

“Humanity is a religion, and kindness is its most effective prayer.”

With this thought in mind, the Human Touch was formed by a team of advertising professionals based out of Mumbai looking to channel their creative energies into building something beautiful and thought-provoking. To tell stories that would move a mass of people and make them believe in the indomitable power of the human spirit and inspire them to rise beyond the chaos that surrounds them in their world.


The first two videos conveyed exactly those thoughts – stories of selflessness, innocence and genuine kindness that touched millions of hearts all over the world. The response so far has been phenomenal and people from all over the world have shared and cared for the videos. It was one of those special ideas that struck a chord with everyone irrespective of their age, nationalities, race or religion, proving once again that love and kindness speak a universal language.

It was this amazing response to the videos from the audiences in Pakistan that caught the attention of the prestigious Express Tribune. They got in touch, offering to do an article on their endeavour and in the process spreading the message to their expansive readership all over the country. Thus, another journey began for The Human Touch to spread its wings and take flight into as many hearts as possible.

Greatly overwhelmed and inspired by this global outpouring of love, The Human Touch will keep on creating video content month after month, bringing beautiful stories of human emotions and kindness to light. The stories would be an honest mix of real life events and fictitious accounts with one single aim in mind – to leave the audiences with positivity that resonates with them for a long time, filling their hearts with a message of eternal love and hope.

We follow and believe in Dalai Lama words when he said,

“The planet does not need successful people. The planet needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds.”
