AIM For Seva Presents Anita Guha’s Dance Drama Nandalala

The Boston Chapter of AIM for Seva Presents Anita Guha’s Dance Drama Nandalala

September 9th at 5 PM, Regis College, Weston

The Boston Chapter of the All India Movement (AIM) for Seva is happy to announce this year’s annual fundraising celebration with a dance & dinner program at the Regis College Theater in Weston on Sunday, 9th September at 5 PM. Seating begins at 4:30 PM.

Keeping with our reputation for bringing high quality dance programs by leading choreographers from India, this year we are delighted to present Anita Guha’s Nandalala, depicting stories of Sri Krishna, the enchanting eighth avatar of Mahavishnu. In this thematic production, Krishna’s glory and splendor is brought to life through dances in six styles -- Bharatanatyam, Kathakali, Mohiniattam, Kuchipudi, Kathak & Folk -- set to soul-stirring compositions by Purandaradasa, Annamacharya, Surdas, Jayadeva, and other great devotees. The music also promises to be a treat, in seven languages and set to Carnatic, Hindustani, Abhang & Folk styles. Key stories depicted are: Krishna’s escape from Kamsa’s prison at birth, his antics as a cowherd, being crowned as Govinda, playing with the Gopikas, how he fulfills duties as an exemplary householder, and his return to Vaikunta after the avatar’s work is done.

Established in 2000, AIM for Seva is a 501 (c) (3) registered non-profit organization that supports poor tribal and rural children in India to finish high-school education. AIM for Seva pioneered the concept of Free Student Homes (FSH) to provide tribal and rural Indian children with lodging, nurturing care, nutritious meals, healthcare, after-school coaching, and extracurricular resources, thus enabling them to complete high-school education. These homes are spread across more than 100 locations in 16 states from Karnaprayag to Kanyakumari, with more being built every year. AIM for Seva was chosen for the 20th All India Mahaveer Awards in the Education category last year, topping the list of nominees with its exceptional service through value-based education to rural students.

Since 2013, the Boston chapter of AIM for Seva has raised over $550,000 from Boston area donors to build and run FSHs, including adopting four of them in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Kerala. We appeal to you to support this great cause -- enabling underprivileged children to finish high school -- as a way of expressing gratitude for all the opportunities that our education has provided for us.

Our goal this year is to raise funds to support 365 children for a year at $450 per child. We appeal to the Boston community to help us achieve this goal by sponsoring one or more children. Donate generously and receive passes to the dance program, followed by free vegetarian Indian dinner.
