Dr. Giri Speaks at NKU and Xavier University

Last March, Northern Kentucky University photography professor Barbara Houghton visited Ma Dham to document the work Dr. Giri is doing to help the widows of Vrindavan for her photographic essay titled "Changing India, one Woman at a Time". She invited Dr. Giri and I to come for the gallery opening on November 15th. She also arranged to have Dr. Giri speak on the status of widows in India and screened "White Rainbow" at her University as well as neighboring Xavier University. It was a wonderful trip. Barbara and her husband Keith, hosted us at their lovely home set in the woods and served us excellent food. It was a great time to get to know Dr. Giri better in a relaxed environment. Her talks were powerful and her enthusiasm was contagious.
I'm looking forward to our upcoming trip in February to continue with the important work that is set before us. Won't you join us? It will be life changing!
