As you must already be aware, our friend and supporter Janaki Mehta had organized a beautiful Kathak Solo night on the auspicious occasion of the Full moon night of Kartik month. She told the story of the holiest month of Kartik through her Divine Dance. The dance performance was conceptualised, choreographed and performed by Janaki Mehta in aid of our charity Food for Life Vrindavan. The show was a great success and we are delighted to share with you that a total of 4800 pounds was raised. A certain part of this money will be used particularly towards the Kathak dance training of the school girls and the costs associated with it.
The goal that Janaki had set was of £6000 which is not far off and any further donations are most welcome to help us reach our target. Those who couldn’t attend or wish to donate further to this worthy cause please see Janaki’s donation page https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/janakimehta1.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the generous sponsors, donors, audience and participants to this event, most prominently however we would like to thank Janaki who is such an inspiration to all our school girls. Janaki sets an example for all of us how we can use our skills to help others. We are sure that a lot of hard work and effort must have gone into this endeavour. For one person to organize, invite, conceptualize, choreograph, and perform just to help girls on the other side of the globe takes a big heart. Thank you Janaki!! We are so proud of you!
