Leaving a high-profile job with the one of the world's biggest investment bank is not an easy decision. But the Indian couple Gaurav Pandit and his wife Sheetal had no qualms when they resigned together from Goldman Sachs in New York City. But the reason for this tough decision could leave many surprised. The Gujarati couple left the job, only because they wanted their 18-month-old daughter to stay in their native Bhanagar and learn their mother tongue. February 21 is observed as the 'International Mother Language Day.' The couple filled with pride that their daughter Taashi now 3-year-old, speaks fluent Gujarati. After working in the United States for 15years, the couple returned to Bhavnagar in 2015 and lived there for 18 months till their daughter started speaking Gujarati effortlessly. "The idea was to connect with our roots and stay with families with Taashi. She received immense love from family and friends and we could see she enjoyed a lot and she started learning Gujarati along with eating traditional rotlis. We took her to important places and forests of country including Gir. She experienced the first rain of the monsoon and drew Rangoli in Diwali. She enjoyed Holi with Keshuda's natural colour and eat Rotlas. Our journey to India will sow seeds in her which will connect to our roots in her lifetime'' "They wanted Taashi to grow up in an environment where their mother tongue is spoken. What could have been a better place than our own native? Moreover, they decided to return when she was just learning to talk. She picked up Gujarati very well and speaks fluently now," Gaurav's father Nalin Pandit.Gaurav completed his chemical engineering from Nadiad-based Dharamsinh Desai Institute of Technology (DDIT) where as Sheetal completed her graduation from the same institute. Sheetal then went to Boston for further studies. They were family friends and ultimately got married after a brief courtship. Amul celebrates ISRO’s success in its own way AMandeep

Indian-origin sculptor joins Hands Off Our Revolution movement February 20, 2017 11:24

Renowned Indian-origin British sculptor is among two hundred artists, musicians and writers, who have joined a worldwide coalition against the rise of right-wing populism around the world. 62-year-old Anish Kapoor and other members of the creative arts have signed up to “Hands Off Our Revolution movement” which began its own website on Thursday (16th Feb). The aim of the group is to stage exhibitions and events that counter far right narratives. Kapoor said that their art affirms humanity and they insist on inclusion of all and for all. The group calls for an action by people of good conscience to stand against the hateful policies of the governments that claims to represent everyone. Adam Broomberg who is one of the driving forces in the project, said that the group aims to channel anger and explore “the possibility of envisaging a future they want to be in”. The mission statement of the group said that they want to affirm the radical nature of art. "The group believes that art can help counter the rising rhetoric of right-wing populism around the world, fascism and the increasingly stark expressions of xenophobia, racism, sexism, homophobia and unapologetic intolerance." According to the group’s statement, it said that they know that freedom is never granted but is won. Justice is never given, but is exacted. Both freedom and justice must be fought to be protected. Yet their assurances have rarely been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp, at the moment.      It also stated that as artists, it was their job and duty to re-imaging and reinvents social relations threatened by right-wing populist rule. It is their responsibility to stand in solidarity. It said that they will not go quietly. It was their role and opportunity using their own particular forms, private and public spaces, engaging people together in thinking together and debating ideas, with clarity, openness and resilience. Narendra Modi to meet Donald Trump in May AMandeep
