It will be a confluence of the traditional and the modern, a mixture of fashion, shopping, chatting, food and fun at a Women’s Only function scheduled to be held on Friday, October 27, 2023 in Auckland.

Called, ‘Deep Mahotsav’  (A Grand Festival of Lights), the socio-cultural programme is being organised by Better Future Trust, a holistic charitable organisation that aims to secure a safer, more peaceful, more harmonious and more prosperous New Zealand for the ensuing generations.

It is the vision of popular businesswoman Shivani Arora, Founder-Director of the Shivani Restaurants in Auckland and Hamilton and Better Future Trust.

The event will be held from 6 pm at Mt Eden War Memorial Hall located at 489 Dominion Road, Mt Eden as a forerunner to Diwali, the Festival of Lights and Karva Chauth, an observance by Indian women for the wellbeing of their husbands.

Ms Arora said that Deep Mahotsav will be an exclusive ‘Ladies Night,’ replete with colour, costumes, good food and ‘great fun.’

“Among the highlights of the event will be cultural and fashion stalls, Garba and other dances, a fashion show, free Henna and a sumptuous dinner. Tickets priced at $50 are on sale. There are many prizes to be won at the Mahotsav,” she said.

About Better Future Trust

Established in November 2022, the Better Future Trust aims to enhance the quality of life of New Zealanders across ethnicities and ensure better standards of environment and sustainability for the ensuing generations.

Social and Economic Well-being is at the core of the activities of the Trust, with the immediate, short-term and long-term objective of fostering good physical and mental health of all people living in New Zealand. As a part of this Mission, the Better Future New Zealand Trust will strive to encourage healthy food habits, preserve animal life and safeguard the environment.

At the core sit key values driving the organisation forward. These are Empowerment, Compassion, inclusivity and equality.

Ms Arora said that the Trust work with people of all faiths and beliefs.

“We believe that women and our youth are powerhouses and wish to empower them to become the best versions of themselves. We are all human and so we approach our mission with compassion, seeking to alleviate suffering and promote understanding and amity among communities. Our Trust strives towards addressing challenges facing the younger members of society, especially on issues relating to their mental health and fostering their career and social ambitions, empowerment of women, upliftment of the downtrodden and encouraging dialogue between various communities to promote an inclusive and harmonious society,” she said.

The recent projects of the Trust were providing women’s hygiene products, sanitation, food and baby products valued more than $50,000 to the victims of Cyclone Gabriel in the Hawkes Bay region earlier this year and gifting laptops to community seniors and teaching them how to use them. The latter was a part of the efforts to empower seniors to be independent and regain self-confidence in accessing services and facilities.

“Our future projects include improving (a) educational resources for children (b) nutrition among the younger members of the society (c) focus of children in classrooms and (d) digital literacy of the members of the community. We would also partner with the Police and other stakeholders in eradicating bullying and harassment,” Ms Arora said.
