What is Under The Stars? What is Daan Utsav?
Under The Stars (UTS) will be part of Daan Utsav (Oct 2nd to Oct 8th), India's very own festival of giving which started in 2009 and has grown by leaps and bounds across cities in India. Indians from all walks of life are encouraged to engage in acts of giving during the week, this could be something personal and individual or something you organize as a group. It can be by giving your time, money or skill to a cause. During the week there are also platform events organized by volunteers for which the general public are invited to participate..... Under The Stars is one of many such events.
Under the Stars (UTS) is a unique sleep out event in India - which took place last year for the first time in India and was a big hit in over 20+ cities. It aims to raise awareness for vulnerable children and those living in destitution and homelessness. The event will also be a fundraiser for NGOs working in this area. It will take place on the night of Oct 1st at Ascendas Grounds, Park Square Mall, ITPB Whitefield.
