Nimesh Reflects On Ekatva
Posted by Neil Patel on Jul 17, 2012
Nimesh shared some remarkable stories from the Ekatva journey, from the early (and not so well-received) performances to the serendipity in their visa applications (which one visa officer said bluntly weren't likely to get approved) to starting a kindness conspiracy with the captain on the children's first plane ride to Nimesh's unique style of tough love at Disneyland to the children spurning the zoo to spend time with a paralyzed boy to bringing a classroom of underprivileged children in Chicago's South Side to tears to a special performance in LA from the "Planting Seeds" artist. For two solid months, the Ekatva team was "drenched" in love by volunteers and well-wishers that served them in myriad small ways while also helping to put together an incredible tour which including marketing, logistics, technical, venue, and more for 16+ shows of hundreds to thousands of people in attendance.
Nimesh also shares his single most special highlight of the 2.5 year journey, a very touching moment.
For Nimesh, Ekatva at its core was about inner transformation and external inspiration, And it was carried out with mindfulness of the day-to-day journey, learning and dealing with the ups and downs, and trying to plant seeds of kindness inside and out. A journey of a life time.
