Volunteer NMIMS - Ishana

Student of NMIMS College, Ishana Mantri an Intern volunteer with Trishul Learning Centre

Ishana Mantri a student of NMIMS, has all the qualities that are required from an MBA student and a professional corporate executive of the future. Career oriented, sharp, focused, a complete set of qualities that are required for making of a future corporate leadership. These are the qualities she reflected upon the students she was guiding and mentoring at Trishul NGO. Beside helping smaller children with academics she was totally focused on helping one of Trishul student Shruti Vyas who was appearing for 10th Grade (SSC) board exam. She was not only very hard working but a absolute task master with her students, she expected them to put the same sincere effort she put herself. She also offered to help Shruti whenever she required for future career guidance, she was more like an elder sister to her than as a faculty.

Ishana is one of the volunteers who would not just take initiative but ask for more assignments and more work. She shared several ideas with Trishul Women Empowerment Team, and was very open critique for anything she felt was not done perfectly. It was a delight to have a volunteer like Ishana Mantri as part of Trishul NGO team.

This dance is performed by a Rajasthani tribe which mainly resides in the Jaisalmer region. In this dance a variety of instruments are played by men whilst dance is performed by women.

Katakh Fusion

Kathak is the Hindi name for one of the eight major forms of Indian classical dance. The origin of Kathak is traditionally attributed to the traveling bards of ancient northern India known as Kathakars or storytellers.

Maharashtra Folk Dance

Lavani. - Lavani is a combination of traditional song and dance, which particularly performed to the beats of Dholki, a percussion instrument. Lavani is noted for its powerful rhythm.
The word Lavani is derived from the word “lavanya” meaning beauty. Women perform this dance in their traditional attire called nauveri or a nine yard saree.

Koli Dance - This dance pertains to the fisher folk of the Koli district of Maharashtra. This dance symbolises the lives of the fishermen. Both men and women take part in this dance. The movement depicts catching fishes using nets and rowing of the boats used for fishing.
