Jul 26: Panel Discussion "Business For a Cause"
Businessgyan And TASMAC invites you for a panel discussion on "Business FOR a Cause" where we are focusing on Social Entrepreneurs... people who have identified a social problem and are addressing this as a Business.
Social workers have always been looked at with awe. The new and emerging breed though is 'The Social Entrepreneur' who has grown in popularity in recent years. They have taken up social causes as a 'business venture' which makes it more sustainable rather than dependent on charity. The social entrepreneur is a highly motivated individual and the fact that he is creating wealth even as he tackles social issues, is an added impetus.
Some of the Topics Likely to be Covered:-
1) Making a Social Enterprise Work as a business.
2) Typical stumbling Blocks in creating a break through idea.
3) Funding sources for Social Entrepreneurs.
4) Why do some become Social Entrepreneurs.
5) How to change set mind sets or status quo
6) Motivating factors
On: 26th July 2007
At: The Chancery (Lavelle Road)
Time: 6:45 to 8:30 PM

Jul 19/20: VODO presents "Chimeras" in aid of Get Eve-in @ Alliance
"Version One Dot Oh!(VODO) presents “Chimeras” showcasing three of Shashi Despande’s famous short stories: “And what has been decided”, “Hear me Sanjaya…” and “The day of the golden deer”. The stories revolve around three popular figures in mythology: Draupadi, Kunti and Sita. In each of the stories Shashi masterfully reveals a very human side to the characters, thus showing them to be characters one can identify with.
The play is being staged in aid of “Get Eve-in”, a not for profit organisation which fights gender stereotyping in society through its various programs.
Get Eve-in is a voluntary organization for women,initiated nine months ago by three friends who felt strongly against common and fallacious perceptions of women around
them. Get Eve-in has organized many free workshops on self-defence covering women in the age group 10 to 50 yrs as also from diverse economic backgrounds. The workshops include various exercises, self defence tips and also interactive sessions wherein the participants exchanged personal incidents and opinions on gender issues with others. Get Eve-in also provides voluntary opportunities to help women take ownership over public spaces.

"Yes... he went to the mountains a few years ago after job quatted, we're still waiting for him to come back", answeres Kamal.
"But...", said Oprah, wiping away one tear drop from her left eye, "How long can you wait for him to come back?"
"As long as it takes him, Oprah", said Kamal,
Oprah is an about-to-burst dam. The entire studio audience is an over filled water balloon about to explode.
"Such commitment.. .", she starts, Kamal cuts her off, "Oprah, haven't you ever heard of side projects? Here take this hanky and console yourself"
"But your side project has become an international super-hit, why don't you call it your main project?", she takes the hanky and cosoles herself. "Such commitment.. .anyway", she continues, "because your undying devotion, we arranged a little surprise for you. Someone is backstage waiting to reunite with you forever", she says facing the audience with a big smile.
One tear drop starts coming from Kamal's right eye. "Oprah... did you find Geor...?"
But before he can complete the sentence, Cartman comes running out from backstage wearing a dress and crazy make-up shouting, "Wha-ever wha-ever, I'll do what I want!", Nagraj from Raj comics comes out shooting snakes at him, Oprah starts to scream, a cameraman falls off from above, a cow jumps into the audience, a fire starts....
Far far away in Himachal Pradesh, in an orchard where no roads reach, a man with a very long beard smiles and switches off the tv in his little cottage. He picks up his papers and felt pens and a basket of lunch and heads towards the door. He remembers when he first came here years ago to finish his graphic novel. He really did think he was going to go back in those days. He hadn't understood the tug of the mountains yet. He walks towards the path he knows so well now. He walks for a few hours, a half smile plastered on his face, he stops to rest under a tree and have some lunch. "Side project...", he murmurs to himself... just then an apple falls on his head.
What is it:
3sevens, (feat. kamal from Lounge Piranha) live at Maya
Who is it:
Kamal, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, lead vocals, side vocals, lyrics, arrangements Rohinton bass, tabla Rahul on tabla
When is it:
6th July - 8 pm onwards
How is it:
hundred bucks at the door, three hundred and seventy seven, seven inside :-)

"THE VALLEY OF FLOWERS AND HEMKUND SAHIB, UTTARANCHAL" .
In 1982, the smallest national park in the Himalayas was created to protect the catchment area of the Pushpavati River. This stream emerges from a glacier then tumbles downward to meet the Ganges. It follows the contours of the steep valley that leads to Hemkunt Sahib, and is the constant companion of the pilgrims who trudge upward on the footpath. The stream's source is in a valley which British mountaineer Frank S. Smythe passed through in 1931 after a successful
climbing expedition. He was awed by the variety of wildflowers growing there, and returned in 1937 to collect more than two hundred botanical species. His 1938 book entitled The Valley of Flowers brought this remote Himalayan meadow to the attention of the world.
