Attended a meeting on finance bill in Kisumu

It is really interesting to know that a country like Kenya known for uninvolvement of people in jurisdiction, invites people to give a feedback on forthcoming finance bill. When I heard them I found that the government team was all set to hear us. Could manage to suggest about the charges on advertisements on our own premises. They replied about every category patiently and also took feedback from our team of HCK kisumu.

It is a good lesson about how system works locally.

Morari Bapu

I had heard a lot about Morari Bapu and when I did meet him in person, I found him to be so simple and also a great orator. When I heard him live at Ebedor Club this July, I was really impressed with his simplicity, of accepting everything around him. I was ready with my questions when I went to see him. He was straight forward and answered them all. When I was chatting with the sponsors of the event, I found that no matter what kind of background they came from, Bapu has been successful in impressing and educating all segments of the society. The Katha rendition was mostly in Hindi and Gujarati but I found an American old lady enjoying every bit of it. Perhaps the language of the heart is universal and is not bound by any artificial boundaries. The best part of Bapu is, wherever he goes, he promotes grass root talent, people who come from very humble backgrounds. He promotes them in different countries and helps them connect with a larger audience. This time he had brought some of the best and famous poets, standup comedies, writers and other performers from Gujarat. Were it not for Bapu, these skilled individuals would not have been able to travel, meet people and impress the world.
