Narika celebrates 25th anniversary

DANVILLE, CA -- The Blackhawk Auto Museum came alive recently as more than 250 guests assembled here for an important cause.

Narika, the San Francisco Bay Area-based nonprofit organization that works to help domestic violence survivors in the Bay Area Indian American and larger South Asian community, celebrated its 25th anniversary by bringing together its founders, supporters, community leaders, and their friends and families in one place.

The goal of the evening, where guests enjoyed food, company, games, music, and dance, was to celebrate 25 years of serving the South Asian diaspora in the Bay Area and to pledge continuous support.

The James Bond-themed evening was an exciting one. At the entrance, guests met with a giant elephant sculpture and a soothing fountain. As they poured in through the main doors, the energy was anything but calm.

Upstairs, the attendees were greeted with hors d’oeuvre and more drinks amidst African artifacts that highlighted fine craftsmanship.

Anitha Chakravarthi, board president of Narika, welcomed the guests, acknowledged and paid her respect to the founders of Narika, enlightened immigrant women who, 25 years ago, identified the need for domestic violence services in the area.

The guests pledged their support in various forms that will enable Narika to continue to promote women’s independence, economic empowerment and well-being.
