Summary of Mumbai Talks of Dr.Nandita Shah

SHARAN had a series of its pathbreaking talks and workshops in Mumbai recently, by its Founder Director Dr.Nandita Shah. Starting from 20th of September till 3rd of October 2010, these talks were held in a wide-variety of places with a vast spectrum of audience. They were organised with the help of Sharan volunteers Mr. Ashit Sheth and his wife Rima, both of whom had benefitted immensely themselves through these workshops, turning them into lifelong loyalists. Organised in places like the BMC, Indian Merchants Chambers, Rotary Club, Bombay Chartered Accountants Society, Senior Citizens Clubs, corporates like Human Factors, colleges like Sophia Polytechnic, schools including BJPC, Gopal Sharma Intl, etc., the talks were very well received and highly appreciated! There were also highly specialized one-day workshops specifically for people suffering from Diabetes and Heart Disease, which resulted in many participants adopting lifestyle changes for disease-free living.
The facts presented in these workshops astounded laymen and doctors alike. And the mantra for all this was simply - a whole food, plant based diet! In addition, organic food was also recommended. Audience of all age-groups seemed clearly impacted as they eagerly asked a plethora of relevant questions and gave very positive feedback. All in all it was a successful fortnight of awareness creation by Sharan.
