Whilst Britain is obsessed by the expenses scandal, the economic recession and general breakdown in social cohesion, a British born charity founded and led by first generation Gujarati immigrants is showing new light out of the darkness. Children represent innocence, integrity and creativity. Sansaar's latest show ‘Masti Maja' held at the beautiful Watersmeet theatre in Rickmansworth (on Sunday 7th June) demonstrated this with a mixture of humour, music, colour and dance very vividly. To say people were mesmerised would be an understatement.

I hate gujarati school! Why do we need to speak Gujarati mum, when you can understand English? I wish we could laugh and have fun when we are learning our culture – it is all so serious! These are comments often heard from children, and parents give up on teaching Gujarati very easily. However, what I witnessed on Sunday 4th November was truly an event of a lifetime, which breaks all these taboos. A group of young professionals under the name of SANSAAR launched a new music CD of gujarati nursery rhymes and performed these on stage through colour, humour and entertaining modern music. ‘Geet-gamat’ is a unique addition to the UK gujarati cultural scene, and demonstrates the tremendous talent that we have here, so far away from our homeland in Gujarat.

If you believe in something or have an idea, which you think will benefit our society, are you prepared to take action and see the idea materialise?  You may have a vision or a dream, which you would like to share with others but have not quite had the time or courage to take that first step.  Well, my advice is do not keep the idea to yourself: be brave and take that first step!

Thousands of non-profit making organisations are formed simply from a dream or an ideal that someone wishes to see in our society.  Take Young Jains, for example: It was the vision of one person.  It now has worldwide recognition and respect, and all because many others slowly followed and believed in the vision.
