As India has been scripting a new path of growth and progress based on the foundation of universal brotherhood, My Home India has been trying to fructify its vision of “Vasudev Kuthumbhakam”. From its inception in 2005 till date My Home India has achieved many milestones in its endeavour to encapsule the cultural diversity of North East India and create a bond of fraternity, providing a new vision to the society at large in this field. My Home India has tried to set an example at times of difficulties faced by the nation. We have been trying to bound together all the states of North East, which had been previously riddled with sectarianism due to ethnic conflicts, diversity of language and cultural discrimination. One such effort that we are doing since 2006 is Nest Fest.
The main objective of Nest Fest is to have a grand welcome to the youths coming from various states of North East to the National Capital for pursuing further studies and to provide them with a feeling of home away from home and to create a sense of bonding. We stand with our brothers of North East not only at the time of admission through helpdesk but throughout their stay. My Home India has been providing assistance 24/7 all over India through its helpline no 9321127701 aiding our brothers and sisters from North East in dire situations.
It is a beckoning sight to watch a glimpse of the beauty and cultural diversity of North East at one place. NESt. Fest provides an opportunity to present the art, culture, attire, cuisine and the festivals of North East before the people of Delhi. The Bamboo dance of Mizoram or the Loha dance of Meghalaya with their vibrant attire are mesmerising to say the least. NESt Fest is not just an event, it is an endeavour to envisage under one roof the concept of Ek Bharat, Shresht Bharat. This event is a golden opportunity to develop friendship with the youths of North East and put to fruition our motto “Bond of Fraternity “as we believe that the Nation can achieve greatness only when the feeling of oneness percolates to every Indian.
The event had the privilege of being graced by prominent personalities such as Speaker Shri Om Birla, Defence Minister Shri Rajnath Singh, Smt Mary Kom, Shri Bhaichung Bhutia etc.
Speaking about our projects Hon President on 9th July 2022 said “ The activities of My Home India , especially the verticals like ‘Sapno Se Apno Tak’ that helped thousands of victims of human trafficking to reunite with the families and the ‘Rashtrawad Pe Manthan’ wherein a conscious effort to propagate right understanding about nationalism has being made is highly appreciable. The young people being made aware about nationalism is a commendable effort.” Till date we have reunited more than 3300 children with their families.
This year also we will be holding NESt. Fest on 16th September at Talkatora Stadium from 9 :30 AM onwards.
