BENEFITING: MAISHA FOUNDATION LIMITED
Santosh and I attended a talk with Mira Nair at the Berkeley Repertory Theater, where her musical adaptation of “Monsoon Wedding” was debuted, and we were fascinated by her works. It was also our first time hearing about the Maisha Film Lab, established by Mira. We admire Mira’s talent and generosity. Her work somehow played a role in our relationship development: Santosh showed me the movie “Monsoon Wedding” even though he does not like romantic comedy. As Santosh and I are now getting married, we're asking our families and friends to make donations to the Maisha Foundation in lieu of wedding gifts. The Maisha Foundation’s mission is to empower artist by giving them tools to tell their stories through film, enrich the world cinema by bringing new and yet-unheard voices into the global discourse, and establish the roots of a self-sustaining film industry in East Africa. We would like to start our new life chapter with kind hearts and fond memories. Thank you so much for supporting us. We immensely appreciate your kindness.
