Cultural Diplomacy Missions

Cultural diplomacy reveals the soul of a nation. Ravi's government sponsored tours promote cultural exchange and understanding through keynotes on entrepreneurship (a pillar of democracy) and music programs that bring together talents from traditionally opposed cultures and religions, creating global harmony through innovation and the arts.   Video

What happened when Ravi went to Jakarta Indonesia and put a Christian, Buddhist, and Sharia Law Muslim in a room for two weeks with other equally diverse millennials, and taught them all to write songs together?  Video

Imagine an Iraqi who was captured by ISIS writing music with a Kurd whose family fled their country after being gassed by an Iraqi (Saddam Hussein).    Video

Ravi also created and hosted a global exchange between students of education programs with which he partners: Shanti Bhavan Children's Project (impoverished children in India) and EYM/Educating Young Minds (foster children in Los Angeles). Such exchanges can foster world peace by enabling kids to bond naturally before "learning" to hate each other.   Video
