    Abstract:

Applications: It can be used in music academy. Bamhum is easy to learn when compared to other similar instruments like flute. It has a get scope in concerts and it can be exhibited in stores. It is the world’s youngest musical instrument. In that sense, other musical instruments take a very long time to learn and play whereas Bamhum is the easiest musical instrument to learn and play, in fact it can be played instantly even by a novice or child. Musicians and Musical shops all over India are the potential clients for selling this product. Following are some of the salient features – Low weight and less space required for storage Easy to play
Advantages: The user can moderate the tone of his/her to get desired musical notes and pitch from the instrument. Thus effectively, the range and tone of the user becomes the tone and range of BamHum, which makes it so versatile. Rattle at one end of the instrument (for amplifying notes) and a hole in the bamboo node (closed internal partition) for passing of the air at the opposite end. It has only one opening (hole) through which the user has to hum, which then gets musically amplified through the instrument.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
