Path forward…

Earlier this year, we embarked upon a project called “PLAN 100” to establish rural technology training centers in 100 schools. This will extend our immediate reach to over 20,000 youngsters giving them the tools they need to succeed. In a short span of past six months, we have been able to launch six school programs covering over 1,200 students

Performers

Program

Divya Nayar, Bharatnatyam

Divya started learning Bharatnatyam from age six and holds prestigious diploma from Kalakshetra College of Fine Arts. She has performed extensively in India and the US and presently teaches this great art. Today being one of the auspicious Navaratri nights, she is performing in praise of Goddess Durga.

Today the performers will be dancing to the beats of “Aisa Jadoo” & “Kangana”.

Devanshi, Stand-up Comedy

Born and raised in Pittsburg, after graduation in New York, Devanshi Patel pursued her childhood love for comedy. Devanshi’s stand up comedy is a medley of craziness in her life, the insanity that is her family, inevitable political incorrectness and the absurdity we all go through.

In addition, she has learnt Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Belly Dancing. Today she will be performing to the song “Dil Cheez Kya Hai” from the movie “Umrao Jaan”

Shiv: The KK in the setup; Sankaran: A messiah-in-the-making – listen to soulful ghazals; Nanda: Listen to his guitar;Divya: The nightingale of Heartbeats;Arvind: See his magic with a pair of sticks; Niranjan: One, who can play to all the tunes.
