Soulful Events - Week 3 Jan'23

Events for the 3rd week of Jan '23

Welcome to another edition of the Soulful Events newsletter! We bring you activities and events that nourish your soul.


  • Finding Ananda, The Man and His Mission - Thursday, 12th Jan

    “Do any deserve liberty who are not ready to give it to others?”

    Recalling the life and work of Swami Vivekananda on his 160th birth anniversary.

    Finding Ananda is one in a series of COURTYARD THEATRE plays developed in Bangalore Little Theatre in the recent past.

    The play moves away from the conventional hagiographic view of Swami Vivekananda to an emphasis on his universal spiritual perspective, and highlights Vivekananda’s commitment to action for addressing pervasive social issues in society. The play also highlights the nurturing socio-cultural context of the Bengal Renaissance that shaped many lives at that time.
    Vivek is a young Indian-American in Chicago, sent to India by his parents to discover his roots – a common phenomenon among first generation Indian emigrants. They know the director of a Vivekananda theatre project and request an internship for the boy in the project. Vivek arrives in India a skeptic. In the process of debate and interaction with the project team he finds ananda. He is transformed and decides to stay back longer to work with a rural development programme committed to Swami Vivekananda’s ideals of service.

  • Ramblings at the Lalbagh Gardens - Saturday, 14th Jan

    We take a walk at Lalbagh Gardens with ecologist and bird watcher, Mr. M B Krishna and see the various observable components, and explore various methods of increasing greenery in our immediate environments of home and offices.

  • Implementing Climate Action in Cities - Monday, 16th Jan

    The recently concluded COP-27 made a breakthrough on loss and damage, however the absence of significant new steps to curb emissions has disappointed many. Localised city-level climate action is still an evolving area of practice. Cities of the global south, including Bengaluru, are finding themselves in a tight spot in the climate-change conundrum as they strive to balance growth and quality of life aspirations with net zero emission commitments and the urgency to strengthen the city’s resilience against climate change-induced risks. May we learn, discuss, share, suggest or act upon.. ideas discussed here for making our city a healthier city for us to live in!

  • Biodiversity, Climate Change and You - Wednesday, 18th Jan

    All of us are feeling the impact of climate change and unless we all unite to take immediate steps the earth could soon face drastic calamities. It is vital that we understand and protect our biodiversity. The days of economic development vs environmental protection are over. The pandemic demonstrated that!

    We now need to innovate and rethink ways to simultaneously improve both, our economic and ecological security.
