Janaki’s Kartik Maas

Dear Friends, 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 […]

The Adventures of Tuk Tuk Challenge!(Day 4)

Our Tuk Tuk team had a tough day today. Rupa prabhu shared a glimpse of his adventures below:  Today is a long one 289 km from Panjim, Goa to Kundapur, Karnataka. Starting was not so good, I was driving on my side and a car overtook us and even though there was no one coming, he cut into us too soon and the back of his car hit our front side and jolted us. It was not too hard so I managed to keep the auto rikshaw on the road. I then tried to chase the guy who obviously did not bother to stop or anything, but soon he was gone! And guess what? after 100 kms on road, in the middle of no where, our accelerator cable broke! I stopped one guy on scooter and he kindly called his mechanic who was about 3 kms away and agreed to […]
