Inspiring Indian Women (IIW) group supported by Indian Women in London, Chak De India group and Jammu Kashmir Festival Team use ‘ART’ as a medium to create awareness towards the sufferings of children in war torn countries, to imbibe humane ethos and spirit. And what can be better than music to do this, as it knows no boundaries. For hope, for a world of peace and harmony- together, we spread the message of peace and love through cultural heritage from the state of Jammu and Kashmir in India.

Carrying forward the flame of Jammu Kashmir Festival at Bhavan lit by Kashmiri Pandits Cultural Society President, Lakshmi Kaul, the performers and supporters in their colourful attire brought Kings Cross, North Ticket Gate to a standstill.  Curious passers-by stood by as flowers of peace were handed to them by little kids Nainika Tikoo, Sheev Dhall and Jivika Dhall. The crowd simply swayed and danced as the message of love and peace became loud and clear. The organisers Rashmi Mishra, Richa Kalra, Roopa Lutzenberger , Lakshmi Kaul and Lalit Sharma made all efforts to ring in the message of multi-cultural society, tolerance and brotherhood through music and dance, right from the heart of London, Kings Cross North Ticket Gate.

The dance was choreographed by Veena Jain from Storm V Academy based in Illford and Shine Krishna from Rhythm Art and Dance Academy based in Tooting. Other participants were Piya Shukla Sharma, Sonam Uprit, Shubham Uprit, Shah Anand, Shweta Dhall and Gurdeep Dhillon and Christina Shiju George.

Mike Guy, the area manager of North Ticket had been specifically co coordinating with great interest so that all goes well. The staff at Kings Cross North Ticket Gate supported this initiative enthusiastically. Veena Jain made sure that the passers-by joined in and made merry. The day 5th November, 2016 Jammukashmirknocking@Kingscross event has left an indelible impression in the minds of all those who witnessed the performance.  The delighted commuters were left with deep thoughts regarding war/ peace and showed eagerness for more such awareness programmes involving more of the public. A particular British girl was seen continuously kissing the organisers and saying, thank you.
