Powai Sharadotsav : A Festival with a Purpose
We started with a book fair back in 2013. We brought together publishers and book sellers from all over India under one roof and presented a wonderful event to Mumbai. This week-long event saw people pour in from all corners of the metropolis. Renowned authors came over from all over the country and talked to their readers, signed books for them, participated in on-stage discussions, etc. As expected, the event was widely covered in the media too. We have not been able to continue the effort on an ongoing basis due to shortage of funds but we do dream to revive it in different forms in the coming days.
We have been organizing Powai Sharadotsav, an autumn festival around the well-known Durga Puja since 2013. It has been well-received by the whole of Mumbai right from its inception. While Celebration of Togetherness is the primary purpose of this event, we always highlight and work on a social cause every year during the festival days. The themes of these festivals were:
2013 - Realise the Goddess within
2014 - Youth Empowerment
2015 - Rediscover our Heritage
2016 - Respect for our Elders
2017 - Care for ( Underprivileged) Children
2018 - Realize the Power within
2019 - Nature's Heartbeat
2020 - Festivity with Responsibility
2021 - Heartbeat of Hope
We have been organizing cultural events such as drama, musicals, etc by renowned professionals in order to give a glimpse of our glorious heritage to the people of Mumbai.
We have been working with various NGO-s in an effort to extend a helping hand to the needy. We donate our time, clothes, money, etc as and when we can.
Going forward we plan to organize events around the unique features this great city of Mumbai offers. We look at many of them everyday but we don't see how blessed we are to be here. We intend to highlight and celebrate them.

Lend a helping hand
We believe the biggest joy one can experience is the joy of giving and the joy of receiving. These are two sides of one coin. All of us need help from others at different points in time. We extend a helping hand to those in need of a financial aid or a particular skill or a warm heart or a pair of ears to listen to what they have something to say. With our limited resources, we try to extend this help whenever we can. We are not a registered NGO but we work with many NGO-s and extend our assistance.
