“An Era of Darkness: The British Empire in India”
India gained its independence from the British on August 15th 1947, after almost two hundred years of British rule. The British East India Company came to India in the 17th century to trade with a rich and prosperous India, created an Empire that lasted for two centuries, and then left an exploited and impoverished nation.
The resistance to British rule had an extremely violent phase in 1857, called the “Sepoy Mutiny” or the “First War of Indian Independence”, which led to crushing defeat. It took a decades long nonviolent movement, finally led by one of the greatest human beings in history, Mahatma Gandhi, to gain independence.To further their rule, the British deepened religious divisions that led to a bloody partition into two countries at Independence. All Indians and those of Indian origin in the world are living with the legacy of this period.
In this six part virtual series course sponsored and promoted by the Indian Association of Greater Boston (IAGB), a group of passionate teachers from the Shishubharati School of Culture and Languages will explore this topic.
We will go through a timeline of the events through three centuries, describe the critical factors and important personalities at play; using a book list, Youtube videos and voluntary quizzes to supplement and illustrate the lessons.
Prizes will be given for participation through the course, and at the end.
Who: Middle School and High School Students
When: Every Sunday 10 AM -11 AM, July 12 – August 16 2020 (Zoom link to be sent)
For any questions, please contact: Indian Association of Greater Boston (IAGB) : Mrs. Lata Rao (email@example.com) Shishubharati: Dr. Seshi Somapuram (firstname.lastname@example.org) , Mr. Vineet Kumar (email@example.com)

Yoga is a 5,000-year-old tradition from India that combines physical, mental, and
spiritual pursuits to achieve harmony of the body and mind. On December 11 in
2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the
International Day of Yoga. The declaration came at the behest of the Indian Prime
Minister, Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on
September 27, 2014, wherein he stated: "Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's
ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action;
restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to
health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of
oneness with yourself, the world and nature”. In Suggesting June 21, which is the
Summer Solstice, as the International Day of Yoga, Narendra Modi had said: "the
date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special
significance in many parts of the world.”

Join Us in our Run and support our IAGB fundraising efforts to help our local food banks and homeless shelters!
Before the pandemic, Feeding America and its network of 200 food banks served 40 million people. As the virus continues, we estimate that 17.1 million additional people could find themselves without enough food. Along with that, experts are also predicting that the COVID-19 pandemic will increase homelessness between 40% and 45%, nationally. That fact is particularly worrisome because advocates confess they already lack enough resources to fully address the current level of homelessness. Many people in our community who were employed before the pandemic now find themselves laid off or having reduced hours. Often, that means hard-working people who are doing everything right will need a little extra help feeding themselves and their families.Along with that with social services stretched thin and businesses shuttering, rather than keeping people away from shelters, the virus has driven many in. This is where food banks and homeless shelters step in – to fill the gap during the pandemic and beyond.
For food banks, pantries, meal programs and the people who visit them , the pandemic has meant a tremendous shift in not only the need, but how those programs are operating. And for shelters, the issue is having people trapped on the streets and exposing themselves to the risk of COVID-19. Hence, we at IAGB have taken two prong approach- we have taken all our effort in supporting our local food banks so that no one goes HUNGRY and supporting homlessness shelters to move people off the streets and into SHELTERS!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT IN MAKING THIS HAPPEN. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RUN/WALK WITH US AND PROMOTE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE AND 100% OF YOUR TICKET PRICE WILL BE DONATED TO SUPPORT THE FOOD BANKS.
