Samvaada is a dialogue which allows a flow of meaning among us,
a flow of love and connection between parents and children,
a flow of connection and encouragement between fellow parents,
a flow of Dharma between contributing members of society.
Samvaada enriches our lives.

Festivals have always been a very key and an integral part of every culture. The months of Ashadha (July), Shravana (Aug) and Bhadrapada (Sep), are very auspicious, as, in these months, we seek blessings of our different Rishis, Devatas and Pitrs (ancestors). The newsletter includes a welcome note by Sonali Ambasankar and articles on Janmashtami and Navaratri and our SHINE students have enthusiastically participated in these festivities.
Its been a wonderful journey with our Shine Samvaada as we welcome the New Year. Its gratifying to see the involvement of our children in honoring our ancestors, celebrating Navaratri and Deepavali, contributing to a cause on Children’s Day and reveling in the knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita.
As we celebrate the Hindu New Year, let us all welcome Bhagavan Sri Rama into our lives. May we all live the values that characterize and glorify him. Let him become an intrinsic and inseparable part of our lives so that we stand up for Dharma (universal values and principles) that become the “adharastambha”, the foundation for life on this Earth, our only home. You will notice that our newsletter has a brand new look for the new year! Also SHINE Samvaada is becoming a shining newsletter by children, for children and with our children. We are happy and proud of how they are living a life of Dharma.
