    This fundraiser will benefit

    street dogs of India.

    from New Delhi, Delhi


We (Vijay and Nandita) are both huge animal lovers and this is something we've bonded over along with our shared love for food and vegan cooking. Both of us have spent a fair amount of time around dogs be it Goldie (who Vijay grew up with), Mowgli (Nandita's cousin, Akshita’s dog), or Nandita's rescues (Bruno, Bijli, Sultan, Monty, Elegance and Jugnu) and have cherished our time with them. More recently we decided to adopt Bruno (one of Nandita’s rescues from India), who we now raise together in the US. Bruno has filled our lives with love, and getting to experience his unique personality gave us a shot at pseudo-parenting which has been a huge gift to both of us. It would mean the world to us if a small part of our wedding could be directed towards giving these adorable munchkins a better life, because they deserve the world and much more!

We want gifts from our wedding to be donated to The Modern Mowgli that is a charity based in Delhi and Haryana that rescues and rehabilitates gravely injured and neglected animals from the streets of India. It was born 7 years ago with a crumbled note of 10 rupees in pocket and with her grandmother's teachings of SEVA (serving, to be of service) in heart. These 10 rupees were used to feed some biscuits to dogs. This seemingly little act of kindness, later, lead to a daily drill of keeping as many as 190 pure souls fed with food and needed care at all times. Not just that, they provide meals to 200 street dogs daily, through hail and storm. They have been in action for the last seven years and hope to be around for another hundred.  

We've been very grateful in life to find love in each other and in our friends and families. We'd love nothing more than to be able to share this love with the ones that are less fortunate on our day. Animals have always been a huge part of our life and have bonded us in ways more than one, so this is our humble way of thanking them for all that they have done and continue to do.

If you're currently reading this, you have the ability to bring a change in the life of several animals with your donation. Even the smallest donations will help cover their medical bills, put food on their plate and help them sustain their mission. To find out more about the work that they do, you can find them on Instagram: @themodernmowgli19 

With love,
Nandita, Vijay and Bruno!
