YONI KI BAAT celebrates its 2nd year on Eastside !
Month of May 2019 marked the 2nd year of our foray onto the Eastside with our popular annual event Yoni Ki Baat at Bellevue Arts Museum. It was great to meet and greet our audience during the wine reception post the show. Many of them were attending YKB for the first time and it was heartening to see the impact, feedback and love that we received. 

Could not have done this without our volunteers who assisted with makeup, hair, food, photography etc. in making this event such a success. 
Another PROUD moment for Tasveer !
Our ED Rita Meher is one of the honorees of the prestigious 'Building Bridges Across the Nation Award' The event was felicitated by WASITRAC and UW Electrical & Computer Engineering. The award was presented to Rita by Counsellor General of India, Sanjay Panda .
Thank you for all the love and support, AND THE HONOR!  Well deserved indeed!
