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 spontanesouly responding to the creative call again. Along the way, Nimo explored what it meant to serve people--working with a group of slum children in India at the Gandhi Ashram, to create a globally-toured arts show called Ekatva ("Oneness"). And in a way he rediscovered himself, in the process coming to embody qualities like kindness, generosity, and gratitude.
The range of topics Nimo's young life and work have touched are ecclectic 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 July 26, 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 warmly welcome.
The Empty Hands Album is completely offered as a gift, downloadable here.
