From an Ivy League
education to working on Wall Street to burgeoning fame as an MTV rap star and
then...to volunteering in the slums of Ahmedabad, India, Nimesh Patel (affectionately
known as Nimo) has traversed both the well-worn path to "success" as
well as a "road less traveled".
It's said "the longest journey you will ever take is the 18 inches from your head to your
heart," and Nimo has quietly walked that path, which included giving up
music altogether (including listening to it for a year), until recently
spontaneously responding to the creative call again. Along the way, Nimo
explored what it meant to serve people--working with a group of children in
India to create a globally-toured arts show called Ekatva ("Oneness").
And in a way he rediscovered himself, in the process coming to embody qualities
generosity, and gratitude.
The range of topics
Nimo's young life and work have touched are eclectic to say the least -- from
higher education and business, to immigrant/diaspora experience, to music
industry stardom, to service and non-profit work to just living a true,
fulfilling, authentic life.
On August 10h, we'll
get to delve into some of those topics -- through stories and music -- and
further inspire the powerful light that exists in all of us. All are
