Charity Concert for our Children in India - 1 Feb 09

Musical evening

Yesterday Thomas and Iris organized a charity concert in the Indian vegetarian restaurant “Zimt & Koriander” with the motto “food for a Day”. Since about one year Pavan Sharma, the owner of the restaurant has been supporting the project future for kids in India with a donation box. All in all it was possible to arrange five times food for the children at the Ashram. In order to make people understand this charitable project better Pavan had the idea to organize a small exhibition of photos in his restaurant. So yesterday they had the opening night with a small concert.

Yashendu had sent some pictures and Thomas and Iris added a few of their photos so that they could exhibit a total of 12 pictures. The pictures show different activities at the Ashram:
The preparation of food, a food for a day sponsored by the guests of the restaurant, distribution of food to the pilgrims, a big Bhandara feeding about 500 people and beautiful close-up views of children.

Thomas told that many visitors were noticeably touched yesterday by the pictures of the happy children’s faces who could enjoy a good meal. Iris framed the event with poems of Rabindranath Tagore. Tagore has also founded a school for children in Shantiniketan, Bengal, and thus the lyric verses which he wrote about children suited the exhibition very nicely. With the Sitar Thomas put the atmosphere of the verses into music and deepened it together with his friend Michael who played the arabid Udu-Drum.

Pavan provided all the guests with delicious vegetarian food so that not only the ears and the eyes but also the palate was pampered. The guests also generously filled the donation box so that it will be soon possible to sponsor another food for a day. The exhibition will be in the restaurant until the end of February: www.zimtandkoriander.de.

After that there is the possibility to show these photos also in other cities. It would be possible to create a touring exhibition which makes the work of the Ashram clear in a easy and free way. Whoever has interest in making this exhibition can feel free to contact Thomas at thomas@jaisiyaram.com

I remember reading about this restaurant in the diary before it must be a good place.
