Pratham USA receives Times of India Social Impact Award

Posted on Tue, 03/12/2013 - 14:32 by easytours
 

Using philanthropy to positively impact the children of India was cited as the reason Pratham USA is this year’s winner of the Times of India Social Impact Award in the International Contribution to India category.

Pratham USA was represented at the ceremony by President, Dr. Atul Varadhachary. A former student, Mahima Maluja, who attended a Pratham pre-school in New Delhi presented the International Contribution to India Award to Varadhachary. The star-studded ceremony attended by the President of India, as well as many other prominent leaders within the Indian community and the Indian Diaspora, was held at the Ashok Convention Hall in New Delhi.

With 14 volunteer-run chapters across the United States, Pratham USA raises more than $10 million annually. More than 90 percent of the money raised by Pratham USA goes directly to Pratham and its partner organizations in India.

This award not only recognizes the efforts of Pratham USA, but most importantly, it recognizes the continued generosity of its donors, both large and small. Every Pratham USA donor believes education provides the foundation for individuals to raise themselves socially and economically. Everyone at Easy Tours understands they have succeeded because of education and this is why we actively support this organization to support the children of India on their path to success. We offer guided visits to Pratham facilities on nearly every tour package we offer.

The International Contribution to India Award is given to an organization based outside of India making significant contributions to address key challenges within India. Social issues of concern include poverty, access to quality education, poor healthcare, social inequity and limited employment opportunities among others.


Taj Malabar

Posted on Tue, 03/12/2013 - 14:22 by easytours
 

The extraordinary craftsmanship of the Taj Malabar can be envied even from the still, soothing Keralan backwaters. As soon as you step into the lobby, you immediately feel calmed by the dark mahogany wood ceilings and soft lighting. The room's design will remind you of a romantic 1940s film.

The hotel’s pool is a mixture of water and garden. The negative edge pool appears to melt seamlessly into the languid Cochin bay. From many angles, seeing where the pool ends and the sea begins is impossible. This pool paradise is the perfect place to read a book or bath in the sun.

Whether enjoying yoga poolside in the morning, or a romantic sunset dinner with a loved one, the Taj Malabar is a sanctuary of peace.

The restaurants make you feel as if you’ve stepped into another world. Whether snacking at the hotel bar, Mattancherry, or sipping an exotic drink and listening to the soothing sounds of a live pianist, you are guaranteed to be surrounded by luxurious ambiance.

The contemporary rooms, with wooden floors and aranmula mirrors, fashion classic luxury at every corner. Many rooms are living works of art. The sculpted archways and Dutch ceiling beams emphasize the height and generous space of the Victorian interiors.

The energy provided by these rooms will fuel your body for the next day’s activities. At Taj Malabar you can treat yourself to the ancient healing art of Abhyangam or take the Cinnamon Coast, the hotel’s luxury yacht, out to cruise the backwaters.


A renovated Rashtrapati Bhavan opened to public

Posted on Tue, 02/05/2013 - 10:23 by easytours
 

An ornate two-ton crystal chandelier hanging 108 ft. (33 m.) from the roof commands attention as one steps into the circular Durbar Hall, a historic niche in the resplendent Rashtrapati Bhavan. The crystals are gleaming, the bulbs luminous, Delhithe floor has been scrubbed, portraits restored, columns of marble and stone polished, and the dome-shaped roof has a fresh coat of paint. Durbar Hall, after long years of not being used is ready to host dignitaries and watch events unfold.

President Pranab Mukherjee’s order to use the space in Rashtrapati Bhavan and to throw it open to the country and its people is being followed by restoring all unused rooms, rediscovering old furniture and artifacts, and positioning them as per the original design.

Recently the Durbar Hall was used for the President’s interaction with delegates of the 13th Conference of Chief Justices of the World.
