A few volunteers (Harbir Kaur Bhatia and her mother Gunwant Bhatia) are traveling to Ukraine/Poland area and border to provide refugee and humanitarian support. They will be supporting logistics, medical aid, supply deliveries across the Ukraine border, and helping immigrants evacuate safely and will provide regular updates from there. Currently, most of the support is being provided by local individuals in each country and NGOs. There is a huge need for financial support, extra hands, and specific supplies. We are collecting funds and specific supplies. Many men are staying back to fight, and women and children are rushing across the border. Children's hospitals, maternity wards, and all civilian sites are not off-limits now. Students and immigrants are left stranded and facing difficulty getting out. After landing, the Volunteers will visit and help the Rotary Club of Poland and Poland Gurdwara. As they are providing significant support to refugees and immigrants. The volunteers will be on the ground stationed with United Sikhs. We request your support in helping in this crisis. Funds will be distributed directly to the individual families and orgs providing support. We will be providing regular webinar/video updates from the sites. We will be your eyes and ears on the ground. Thanks for the support and assistance!
India is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, with distinct forms of customs and traditions from every part of the country contributing to our rich heritage. Yakshagana is a traditional theatre, developed in the southern states of India, that combines dance, music, dialogue, costume, make-up, and stage techniques with a unique style and form. It is believed to have evolved from pre-classical music and theatre during the period of the Bhakti movement. Its stories are drawn from several epics from Hindu, Jain, and other ancient Indian traditions. Unfortunately, due to rapid modernization, many traditional art forms, like Yakshagana, are slowly fading away. It is no secret that Indians take a lot of pride and joy in their culture. So let’s join hands in not just keeping our heritage alive but also embracing it!
