Happy Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi is the biggest festival that Punekars celebrate and Pagdandi is infected by the fever as well. From selling Eco-Friendly Ganpati Idols by Eco-Exist (www.e-coexist.com) to conducting a ‘Make your Own Ganesha’ workshop by Niranjan Upasani of Bluewiss (www.bluewiss.com), we did it all! 🙂

No Looking back by Shivani Gupta

No Looking Back by Shivani Gupta is an inspiring and moving memoir that showcases the indomitability of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds. Pagdandi along with Ekansh Trust (www.ekansh.org) organized a book reading event on Saturday 22/3/14. It was an honest and heart touching interaction with our audience. Was truly a privilege for us to host Shivani.

More about the film:

On a Sunday, 26-year-old widow Sudha tells her 7-year-old sun Ahish that she will go to the market. He wants to join her at all costs, but she leaves him at home with explicit instructions not to leave the house. When his 14-year old friend Neha visits him, his mother’s orders are soon forgotten. Together they leave the house to explore the neighbourhood. Then both of them observe that his mother is not on the market but hiding a secret instead.
