Turning Wounds Into Wisdom The Shenpenn Khymsar Way!

“In order to write about life, you must first live it.” – Ernest Hemingway

He writes poetry in four languages, pens lyrics in three, is a monster shredder who composes rock to heavy metal to pop to Spanish to mellow romantic numbers to dark music alike. If that isn’t enough, he is a world-acclaimed Tibetan activist, international rock-u-mentary filmmaker and now writer-director Shenpenn Khymsar is rewriting history by making Broken Wings, the first Nepali-Hindi-English film from Darjeeling, 72 years after Indian independence.
“Broken Wings is the first true representation of the Northeast. To an average Indian, Nepali means momos, security guards and a regiment. In an artistic sense, I am asking for inclusion of people from the Northeast.”
It has not been an easy journey for Khymsar. Born in exile, the struggle to find his true self and the want to go back home seems an eternal quest. “Tibet needs to be free,” he says simply. The rebel in Khymsar has always tried to rebuild his broken wings through the medium of cinema. His unconventional effort of combining political filmmaking with entertainment, mirroring the frustration of an entire young generation in the hills of North-Eastern India is evident in both his documentary ‘Journey of a Dream’ and his current feature, Broken Wings.

“Life has never been easy. There have been times when I was depressed, rebellious, angry and could not rationally articulate happenings. What kept me going were my dreams.”
The autodidact artist in Khymsar worked on his Hindi, studied scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita to the Upanishads, the Vedas, the Nalanda tradition besides mastering Urdu poetry. When it comes to Shenpenn Khymsar, it looks like victory is the only way forward for a person who refuses to go down to destiny!

Kamala Harris’s Rise Sends A Message Of Hope To Young Girls Of Colour And Every Immigrant In The US – Tel K Ganesan

US State Senator, politician, lawyer and Vice-Presidential running mate Kamala Devi Harris has scripted history by being the first Indian-American or African-American woman to be appointed as the Vice-Presidential running mate.

It is a known fact that Kamala Harris has a huge support base in the Indian-American community. Indian-born Hollywood producer, philanthropist and serial entrepreneur Tel K Ganesan is excited at the power push for the senator as it “sends a message of hope to young girls of colour, and any immigrant, for that matter.”

Ganesan, who met Harris at Detroit, Michigan during her political run for the primary race of the Democratic presidential ticket, avers that Harris is “high energy, positive, upbeat and a bubbly person.” Ganesan had an instant connect with her. “We shared wonderful, happy moments. She is very friendly. It is much like talking to a friendly neighbour.” Both Ganesan and Harris’s mother Shyamala Gopalan hail from Chennai. “We very briefly spoke in Tamil – vanakkam and nandri. We did talk about sambar,” he grins.

Though Harris considers herself black, she has also spoken of her Indian roots. Harris has worked in international development around the world and return to live in villages throughout India in the mid-90s. Her matrilineal family of strong South Indian women has always been her inspiration. Her mother is a Tamilian from Chennai, and had moved to the US for higher studies. Her father is Donald Harris, of Jamaican descent. Ganesan is very proud of Harris’s achievement. “As an immigrant, it is a great inspiration. She already has a track record of breaking barriers. She started off as the first person of color in the office of the district attorney in San Francisco as a tough prosecutor and later as California Attorney General before winning the Senate seat four years ago. Harris is also the first person of Indian descent to ever get on the presidential ticket. Harris amassed more than $35 million over 11 months despite challenges that black women candidates face in raising money.  If the Biden-Harris ticket wins, Harris will be the highest-ranking female US official in the country’s 244-year history. And it is not just that, Biden who would be 78 if he wins, might only serve a single four-year term, instantly making Harris a leading 2024 Democratic Presidential contender. She serves on several high-profile committees in the Senate including the Intelligence Committee and the Judiciary Committee.”

Ganesan believes that such a historic move is only possible in a country like the United States. “Hope fuels life and hope fuels opportunities. This will address the bottom-line issue of under-representation of women and minorities on US public company boards and will match the changing demographics we are experiencing in the country today.”

Statistics reveal that 42% of women in the US have faced gender discrimination at work. Even in the military, women represent 16% of the enlisted forces and 19% of the office corps. “Kamala Harris’s rise opens up the dream of women and minorities sharing the same power, privileges, rights and opportunities as the privileged and is a giant stride for women in politics. India and Pakistan have had women in political power, but for the US, this is a first. A person born of immigrant parents running for the second highest position in the land, shows us the impossible is possible. It reinforces that the American Dream is still alive and well.”

A green card holder and permanent resident of U.S.A.; Atul Arora had completed his graduation in B.A. from Lucknow. He had assisted big production houses and films in various departments during their filming in Lucknow like Anil Sharma’s “Gaddar…Ek Prem Katha”; J.P. Dutta’s “L.O.C: Kargil”; Chandan Arora’s “Main Meri Patni Aur Woh”; Ashu Trikha’s “Baabarr”; Abhishek Chaubey’s “Ishqiya” and its sequel “Dedh Ishqiyaan;

Dubai Based Immigration Consultancy Vazir Group Eyes The Indian market Announces Its India Plan

Immigration Expert Gaetano Giornofelice of Dubai’s Vazir Group: Investment of Rs. 25 lakhs could get you  immigration under the Canadian Foreign Worker Program

New Delhi 08/04/2020:  Dubai headquartered Immigration consultancy Vazir Group has announced a Free ‘Immigration Through Invest Mentoring Tour’ along with one-on-one consultancy sessions in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and its neighbouring cities later this year. The Expert organization that has been in the immigration business for over a decade, has successfully assisted over thousands of families to immigrate to their destinations of choice.

The Company specializes in Immigration for Investors & Entrepreneurs and the Canadian Foreign Worker program and has successfully ventured into multiple geographies like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Lebanon and Egypt over the past few years, through its offices in Canada and the UAE. It has assisted several individuals and families with their immigration intricacies.

Gaetano Giornofelice, Senior Immigration Mentor, Vazir Group said,”During the India visit, Vazir Group will be introducing aspiring individuals to the Canadian Foreign Worker program where individuals can move to Canada in as early as six months and for as little as 50,000 dollars, which is about Rs 25 lakhs and the Canadian Entrepreneur Program that grants permanent residence while the applicant is in their home country. What’s more,  the Canadian Immigration for Entrepreneurs can be procured in  record processing times.”

It is noteworthy that the number of Indians who became permanent residents in Canada increased from 39,340 in 2016 to 80,685 in 2019, through the first 11 months of 2019, an increase of more than 105%, according to a National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) analysis of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada data. Full-year Canadian statistics show more than 85,000 Indian immigrants in 2019.

The Vazir Group has also unveiled its exclusive Cyprus immigration program at a cost that is over 75% less than that prevailing. The investment which is mainly in the real estate sector normally costs between 2.5 to 2.9 million Euros. However, Vazir Group is the only consultant across the region that offers the same immigration at a mere 6,88,000 Euros through a financing program.

Gaetano Giornofelice further said ,”In spite of the comparatively high level of investment required, Cyprus remains a leading choice for business professionals across the region owning to the passport’s powerful status. Our exclusive program now makes the EU citizenship even more accessible for a wider cross section of applicants. In addition to Cyprus, we have devised similar programs for Greece and Turkey, which obviously come at a fraction of the cost. We aim to make the acquisition of residencies more accessible for desirous applicants through our experience and service network across these regions.”

The Vazir Group Consultancy series of events are scheduled for later this year. It is pertinent to state here that  the India venture will be a prelude to establishment of  Vazir Group’s largest branch office in India.

Sums up Giornofelice, “India is undoubtedly a bustling pool of aspiring talent and ideas and we have been fortunate enough to assist several applicants in securing their future through our Dubai offices. However, realizing the recent surge and increase in investors from India, a service on homeground was the obvious move. Our team and process involves our in house legal professionals, documentation auditors with governmental experience and expert consultants that allow us to maintain our  99% + success rate for desirous applicants.”
