As we head into the end of March, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the recent events in Atlanta and Boulder and across the country. It has disheartened me to my core to see these heinous acts continuously taking place. It causes a disruption to our communities that we have worked hard to build. It shakes up our trust in society.
It is our individual and collective responsibility to take action against hate, and remind our communities that people matter and culture matters. I introduced Bhangra/Bollywood to the fitness industry 21 years ago to educate and excite my community about my culture through dance. All of us come from cultures that are important and have something beautiful to offer. And opening up our minds to a world outside our own enriches us greatly.
As we move towards spring and new beginnings, let’s pray that we can recharge with good energy and spread a positive vibe amongst our communities.
I continue to be that cultural energizer
