An international mission
This Saturday evening (October 24), India is coming to Bristol – via Hollywood – with an international mission to help a children's home in India.
Nomads is sponsoring One Night in India, which includes international musicians, inspiring speakers and a bustling Indian style market. The mission is to save the crucial food-growing land of Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home.
On the banks of the river Ganges in Rishikesh, India, sits Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home. Started 25-years ago by Prabhavati Dwabha, a 1970s Hollywood actress, Prabha shares her home with over 60 children at risk of murder, prostitution, child labour, begging, starvation or total neglect. At Ramana’s the children have sanctuary, love, food and a rounded education via the home’s free school for over 160 local children. Here's a short video about Ramana's Garden https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEqZt5Pa7TE
The home needs help. The organic farm that supplies 90% of the home’s food is under threat. Ramana’s need vital funds to secure the lease on the land and protect this integral part of their everyday lives. To help achieve this, Prabha, together with three Bristol women are encouraging the city to celebrate the sounds, colours, scents and vibrance of India, for one magical night.
The benefit event will take place at The Elmgrove Centre in Cotham and will include artists such as Praful, virtuoso performer, composer and world music pioneer; Sika, who creates his unique sound of world, ambient dance and trance with both ancient and contemporary instruments; Sudha, who is known for her beautiful chants and meditative mantras and Tarisha, whose uplifting ballads are dedicated to women and the Goddess. Prabha herself will also be there, sharing her stories of setting up and running the children’s home.
“Life has shown me time and again that the more you give, whether it is of your self, your wealth, your time, your knowledge, or your heart, the more you draw back to you.” Prabhavati Dwabha
Guests can expect to enjoy delicious Indian snacks and chai while browsing the stalls selling goods and wares. There will be a stall from Ramana’s Garden to pick up more in depth written information about different ways to support the children at Ramana’s and to buy jewellery made by the children. The event will also be live streamed around the world, so everyone can join in online for one night in India!
