Combining the best of both Eastern and Western teaching methods, I hope to instill in the students a love for dance. The students start in small groups learning the basics - posture, movements, rhythms, gestures from my able staff members under my continuous supervision. As they mature in age and technique, I personally groom them further in developing a deeper understanding of the dance form and enhancing their performance by working on - grace, endurance, sensitivity and presentation. While audio or video tools may be supplementary, I believe in a one - on - one approach much like the oral and visual learning that is the hallmark of my 'tradition'. - Ramya
Arpana means 'offering' in Sanskrit and it is with this spirit of offering dance to the Divine that the school began. Since humble beginnings in 1982, Ramya Harishankar has personally trained several 100 students in this rigorous art form with more than 150 of them 'graduating' and performing their dance debut or Arangetram. The teaching follows much in the pattern of the 'Guru-Shishya' tradition of yore. The students are not mere enrolees in the school but develop a personal relationship with their teacher over the years, learning many intricacies of the dance form, performance techniques and cultural awareness. Through her school, Ramya has helped build artistic sensitivity, appreciation and understanding of cultural traditions in the community. Her students also acquired physical and mental discipline, strength of character and personalities that have held them in good stead through their high school, college and working careers. Many continue to be a part of the Arpana Dance Company post Arangetram and some have become torchbearers of the form.
"I believe learning a performing art and achieving a certain amount of proficiency requires regular attendance, a good practice schedule, exposure to all dance forms/ dancers, family support, self motivation and an intelligent approach. Even though it may be only an extracurricular activity for many students, the art form itself is no less than any other art or science, requiring years of dedicated mental and physical work. It is a life long journey of growth and learning." - Ramya

Over the years, it became clear that an aggregation-based model would the be ideal way for our clients to choose insurance policies suited to their needs. Consumer empowerment has always been the spirit of G1G, and in 1997 - in a world before widespread e-commerce - G1G became the world's first online insurance aggregator, very much like popular airline and hotel booking websites of today. As we came to realize that every journey is unique in very many ways, we began exploring new ways to connect our diverse customer base of travelers, immigrants, green card holders, international students, foreign nationals and even expats, to specifically tailored plans. In 1999, G1G began working directly with underwriters to design products that they knew travelers and visitors wanted.
Since its inception over 3 decades ago, G1G has continued to revolutionize the industry by being the only aggregator to operate a customer portal, placing all of the users primary needs in one place. In spite of considerable growth and expansion, G1G has always placed customer service first - more so than anyone else in the travel and visitor insurance space. In fact, even though other providers such as Visitors Coverage and Insubuy got their start at G1G, we have continued to innovate and disrupt the market by reimagining the way travel insurance can be delivered to the end user in ways no competition can. Simply put, no one knows the market as well as its founders and no one else shares G1G's values and mission.
Today - with its abundant history and experience - G1G is far from the start up it once was. Yet, we consider ourselves something of a re-start up. Rebranded for the modern travel industry with the core focus on user experience, we embrace the latest ideas from the neighboring tech industry and use that to make the process of connecting you with a plan that fits your needs quick, easy, and straight forward. In keeping with our company motto, we want you to do what we strive to accomplish every single day - enjoy the journey.

Since 1994, Hindu Heritage Endowment has worked to help people and strengthen Hindu communities around the globe.
If you are one who has been touched by Hindu thought and culture, you may wish to further enrich your life by giving back to Sanatana Dharma in countries around the globe and helping preserve its rich heritage for future generations. Hindu Heritage Endowment (HHE) provides such an opportunity. A public charitable trust recognized by the United States government, HHE was created to maintain permanent endowments for Hindu projects and institutions worldwide. Its endowments benefit orphanages, children's schools, ashrams and temples. They support priests and publish books; and they are designed to continue giving that financial support year after year, decade after decade, century after century.
The staff at HHE is one-pointed in their dedication to seeing that qualified donations will be used effectively for the purposes intended. Each beneficiary must give a detailed yearly report on its income from HHE and a schedule of how the next year's funds will be spent before funds are issued. We take it as a sadhana to see that your gifts meet their purpose.
Please place Hindu Heritage Endowment in your will, your year-end giving and/or your monthly budget. Whether you are inspired to give a few dollars to support orphanages or bequest millions in your will, write, give us a call or look us up on the Internet. Find out how to enrich your life by helping to preserve the treasures of a profound heritage for generations now living or as yet unborn.

At Kalanjali: Dances Of India we believe that dance has the power to promote a healthy self-image and enhance essential life skills that go beyond those acquired in our dance classes. We aim to teach the most authentic classical form of Bharatanatyam as we were taught in India, and also to impress upon our students a love for dance, and an understanding of its antiquity, scientifically evolved details and inherent beauty. Let them dance well, and let them become ambassadors of a cultural wealth reaching back thousands of years.
We share the dreams of our Guru Rukmini Devi Arundale who founded Kalakshetra College of Fine Arts more than 70 years ago, to preserve the then-threatened performing arts that had survived in the temples for millennia before the British overwhelmed India and tried to snuff the ancient voices. Through Kalanjali we strive to reach across all boundaries, both within our own multi-faceted Indian culture, and beyond the limits of any division. Founded on the belief that dance can positively impact anyone’s life regardless of age or skill level, Kalanjali provides authentic training in a friendly atmosphere, where both teacher and student share the challenges of the journey.

Welcome to Paru's! We specialize in the cuisine of South India, where cooks typically use rich spices and aromatic herbs to transform intricate conjurations of vegetables, lentils, and rice into tasty meals that are as fulfilling as they are filling. Masala Dosa, Idli, Uppuma, and Sambar are the mainstays of a style of cooking with which all India, and now much of the rest of the world, has fallen in love.
Paru's was first established in Washington, D.C., in 1975, after my family had immigrated from India. They wanted to engage in a business that would harmonise with their beliefs and their life-style, and so my father combined his entrepreneurial skills with my mother's talents in cooking and plunged boldly into the difficult job of keeping a small restaurant running seven days a week. Following the success of that first venture, we moved to California where our present location opened in March of 1979, and we've been here on Sunset Boulevard ever since. As more and more people have become aware of the physical, social, spiritual, and environmental benefits of the vegetarian diet, Paru's has become somewhat of a landmark both to local vegetarians (as well as non-vegetarians who simply like the food!) and to visitors from abroad.
The strict culinary traditions of our ancestors, which my dear parents and I brought with us from India, assure you that every meal at Paru's is prepared with loving-kindness as well as technical mastery. Our staff is friendly and considerate and has been part of the Paru's family for many years, and our kitchen is 100% vegetarian. Most of our offerings are vegan as well, except for many of the drinks and desserts which may contain milk products.
Camaraderie, relaxation, a happy stomach, and serenity of the soul--these are the experiences that await you at Paru's.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
