Awakin Talks: An Evening of Inspiration

Sunday, December 8th, 4:30-8:30PM, Mumbai

On Dec 8th, 2019, Awakin Community in Mumbai is hosting Awakin Talks, a gathering where inspiring speakers from around the country will share their stories of service and inner change. The speakers include Dr. Vikram Patel, who dedicated his life to a village after his med school and still lives on two pairs of clothes; Hans Dalal, who despite challenges of cerebral palsy has been an untiring advocate for wild-life conservation; Ritika Mittal, who is transforming handicrafts and the lives of rural artisans; and Shalini Jatia, as a secretary of Tata Memorial Trust's pediatrics, who has been uplifting cancer patients for decades with a heart of gold.

About the Event

Two simple ideas lie behind Awakin Talks. First, intrinsically motivated service creates a very different pathways to social change than merely pursuing external impact alone. Second, by simply holding space to share and listen to such stories, we unlock a profound new possibility in society. We start to Awakin -- awaken with kin.

Vinoba Bhave used to say, "What rises up like a fountain, will return in the form of many distributed drops." We feel that, in this era, social change will manifest via many small and decentralized efforts and our hope with this event is to presence those droplets of inspiration -- so everyone is moved to shine their corner of world with great love. We have noticed that when we lead with love, unexpected synergies unfold organically and we very much count on amplifying that magic.

To nurture this intention we are bringing together four diverse, inspirational souls for Awakin Talks on Sunday, December 8th, 2019.
