TV Stars Exude Charm at EKAL Fundraising Event

The dance floor was packed

DIAMOND BAR, CA The attractive and enchanting  Avinash Sachdev and Rubina Dilaik,  who play the romantic  leads  Dev and Radhika in Zee TV's  immensely popular serial " Choti Bahu " were the cynosure of every eye in the packed banquet hall  at the Peacock Gardens Banquet Hall here, where  they  were chief guests at  a fundraiser presented by Friends of Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation of USA on the night of Sept. 22.

It was a most enjoyable evening for guests because not only were they able to rub shoulders with one of the most endearing duos in the entertainment industry but were given ample time to soak in and dance to a delightful musical journey through the Eras of Bollywood performed by Jayshree Gohil and orchestra .  All this, thanks to the organizers  who kept  the formal segment short  and brisk and to the point.

Jayshree Gohil and her ensemble rocked the crowd

After a brief statement , emcee for the evening  Esha Shah  quickly introduced the Regional President   of  EKAL, Uma Gulani who provided a short presentation on the goals of the organization, its spectacular growth  and its laudable  achievements.  She explained the Foundation's model to strive for holistic village development through education which includes healthcare, development and empowerment. She said children in the 4 to 14 age bracket are provided primary education who become change agents  and  who in turn transfer their knowledge to their illiterate parents which leads to development and awareness all around. Teachers are selected from the youth in the villages who are trained specially for the task.  The program also supports creativity, physical training and educating villagers on Government aid available and utilizing their own  resources such as water harvesting, etc.

Gulani revealed that just $365 would support a school of 30 to 40 children for a whole year and added people could participate in EKAL's endeavors by  making financial contributions or by volunteering and spreading the message and thereby building the movement.  She was followed by Anil Parekh who repeated some of the same points and added some more information, speaking in Gujarati.

Chief Guests Avinash Sachdev and Rubina Dilaik

After  sportingly agreeing to stop by  every table  to meet  guests and have photographs taken with them the TV star duo  addressed  the gathering.  Rubina  Dilaik  thanked everyone for the warm welcome they had been accorded  and requested them to become part of the noble cause by giving the children in India much needed humanistic support.  Expressing how honored she was to be involved, she thanked the organizers for their efforts to bring them to the event.  Avinash Sachdev, on his second visit to the city, added that he felt good because their presence, instead of being for  just a publicity event, was backed by a good cause.  He remarked all the problems relating to poverty and unemployment in India stems from illiteracy and once that was solved by providing opportunities for education, the country would one day be as developed and as prosperous as the USA.  Gulani then presented the pair tokens of appreciation and honored them with EKAL pins and declaring them as brand ambassadors for the Foundation.

After this the musical ensemble led by singers Jayshree Gohil and Suresh Bhatt  stepped into the limelight. They enthralled the audience with a whole range of super hits from Bollywood movies through the years. What set the evening  on fire midway through a thoroughly enjoyable performance was a pulsating medley of  favorites which included sizzling numbers.  Such was its unrelenting beat it drew a large enough crowd on their feet to fill the entire  dance floor.  The vocalists were given excellent support by Oni Benjamin on the keyboard, Hari Bhatt on the drums and Pratik Patel on the tabla and dhol all of who helped  to keep the energy at peak levels  throughout the night.
