Our most recent 'family extracurricular' involvement was The Ekatva Tour, a dance drama show performed by 16 children from Manav Sadhna.
Manav Sadhna, an NGO based in the Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad, is dedicated to the upliftment of the underprivileged through love.
They were truly a blast! It was a great opportunity to practice my Gujarati and Hindi speaking skills, and because they're young & innocent, they didn't make fun of us if we said something incorrectly or searched for the correct words! Their show was amazing! It was series of 10-minute episodes of Gandhiji's life, and the way these kids acted and performed was truly inspiring. We hosted a couple kids at our house and they had a blast playing our instruments with my brother. They were extremely talented and gave my brother a few pointers. Another day, ALL the kids were over and they had a complete musical party -- sooo much fun (and loud)! 

There's an amazing, indescribable aspect about the innocence of kids. The week-ish with the kids was a memorable time. I'm not sure if they'll remember us, but we'll definitely remember them.
