Come and enjoy a scintillating performance Jaagrata, by Ms Megna Murali, a Bharathanatyam dancer. The story is inspired by the book Another Heaven, by Annu Subramanian. After successful performances in Albany, New York and Dallas, Texas, Megna has another opportunity to raise funds in the Los Angeles area. We request all to come and support the cause and make a difference in the lives of unfortunate children and women, who needs support.
The proceeds from this program goes to support Project Udaan, a premier organization that helps rehabilitate sex workers in Kolkata, West Bengal. There are approximately 11,000 sex workers in the brothels of Sonagachi and Kalighat in West Bengal, which includes men, transvestites and girls aged 13-20.
The community battles abject poverty, the risk of contracting sexual diseases including HIV, physical torture, violence and premature ageing. Since 2012, The Art of Living has worked with sex workers and their children through Project Udaan, to bring about a change in their mindset. The deep-rooted stigma attached to their work has conditioned them to live in a state of low self-esteem. The sex workers have been taught Sudarshan Kriya, yoga and pranayama, which has helped them to overcome depression.
