Geeta Chhabra's letter to her Readers

 

Dubai

19th October 2017

My dear Readers,

 

Returning to Dubai is equally exciting – as it is when I am back in Mumbai.  Both places are special to me, and what is splendid now is to welcome all my family members for a brief vacation to celebrate Diwali.  Daughter, Vibha Bakshi is attending important international events in Dubai which have everything to do with her career as a well-recognized social documentary director and producer.    

 

I participated in an interesting Career Fair event, at the Emirates International School – Meadows in Dubai, which was on 18th October 2017.  Amongst the several pathways which were identified for student-discussions, I chose to speak on Human Services – a line which is close to my heart and ground-level experiences.  I shared my views on EKAL Vidyalaya Foundation, Navjyoti India Foundation and Dignity Foundation. I was able to offer actual knowledge on my own journey which has been a source of self-fulfillment via these organizations.  I do believe that citizens must contribute towards society and we cannot leave everything as a responsibility for our governments.  The children attended the Meadows Career Fair with great enthusiasm.  

 

In the Poetry Section I have taken a few poems which were recited by me during the Poetic Heart Events – Connecting Humanity which is held in Dubai, every year.  To view the poems kindly click on http://geetachhabra.com/poetry/poetryindex.php.
