Happy Diwali

Of all the festivals we celebrate in India, Diwali is by far my favorite. It’s a celebration of light, happiness, and everything positive about life. And all the oily fingers and hot wax candle burns are worth it, because Diwali nights are one of the most beautiful of the year. We’re happy that we were…

The Tea-Candle Project

Shine for Jeevarathni

Visit to People for Animals

Hello! Do you remember our sale on August 12th, at Mallya Aditi International School? Well, since we collected payment in the form of coupons, we had to wait for a couple of weeks to get them changed into money. After that, we had a bit of trouble coordinating a good time to visit. Buuut…. Good…
