We had meeting with Mukhosh group few weeks back and discussed about fund raising and helping each other. We had sent this udpate to our group already.
Introduction of Mukhosh
mukhOsh is a Bangla theatre group comprised mainly of researchers and alumni
of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore . Please visit http://www.mukhosh.org to know more.
Mukshoh theatre play in Bangalore and their service to society. Mukhosh team made a wonderful theater play on 12th and 13th Jan 2008 at Seva Sadan Auditorium, Malleshwaram. The Show theme and name is “Jibon Muchki Haashe…..” (A sweet and sour comedy) by Ayan, (inspired by “The play is the thing”, a play by P.. G. Wodehouse)
The best part is Mukosh agreed to provide the proceeds to INDIA SUDAR.
On the show:
Ravi and Shiva attended on behalf of INDIA SUDAR and we had put a small stall with our posters and pamphlets. It was great experience to meet different people and explain our activities.
Show was close to 3 hour show with a break in between. The show was really very good and well prepared. Though we do not understand Bengali, we coul really appreciate their acting, stage preparation, technology usage, co-ordination and their presentation, it was really amazing and inspiring. We are sure a play of this length would have taken them quite some practice.
Myself and Shiva explained our India Sudar activities on stage before starting the show.
We met different people and they were interested to know what we are doing and how they can support us. One IIsc Phd student from US donated Rs. 500 there and we yet to receive other donation details.
On 13th Jan 2008, Mukhosh handed over a cheque for Rs.5000 as a token contribution to INDIA SUDAR on stage. They yet to check their accounts and calculate. We would get some more contribution from Mukosh :-).
On behalf of INDIA SUDAR, we thank MUKHOSH for providing a different platform to reach people and their wonderful support during their show including allowing us to put a stall (with table, chair etc), allowing us to give introduction to audience on stage and etc.
Thanks a lot for entire “Mukhosh team” for their support and it was excellent performance.
This is the first time India Sudar has partnered in cultural’s for fundraising and it seems to have had a good start.
