An invitation to celebrate the 65th Dhammachakra Pravartan Din Online
The pandemic has not only exposed social fault-lines and weaknesses in a way that can no longer be ignored but also exacerbated many of them, not only in India but throughout the world.

India and the world are faced with old questions they can no longer ignore, and new questions they have to face...

Covid Relief Work - Food Kit Distribution to Vulnerable in slums

By tejadhamma on Mon, 26 Jul, 2021 - 14:21

Here is a film shot in a slum called Alamnagar, Kamptee. We are working in 24 slums...
