Mandala South Asian Performing Arts Launches New Headquarters at National India Hub Devon Avenue

Asian Media USA © Chicago IL: Mandala South Asian Performing Arts Lanches New Headquarters at National India Hub on Thursday – May 19 2022 at 2642 W. Devon Avenue, Chicago IL. Devon. Devon Avenue has long been a site for cultural exchange and South Asian diasporic community. Since those like Jagdish Khatwani opened the first South Asian business on Devon, India Sari Palace, in 1972, and the Patel Brothers opening their trademark grocery store in 1974, this region has become a home for the largest community of South Asian residents in Chicago, Illinois and the broader Midwest. With the waves of the South Asian diaspora also came the businesses, cuisines, and arts of ancestral traditions. But, as many of us have learned, particularly with the trials of the pandemic, making space for tradition has become challenging. Mandala Arts has moved its headquarters where we believe South Asian arts are already deeply rooted; the arts need and deserve an advocate, supporter, and leader. With current and future artistic partnerships and collaborations, Mandala believes that Devon can grow and thrive. Invited guests Alderwoman Debra Silverstein, Alderman Andre Vasquez Jr of Chicago’s 40th ward, Mr. Ranjit Singh Consul Chicago, Mandala Board President Dr. Umang Patel and Paragi Patel, Pranita […]

Press Conference & 15-Minute Bus Tour of Illinois Prairie Path in Hillside Asian Media USA © Hillside IL: Voters are outraged that Illinois Governor JB Pritzker and Hillside Mayor Joe Tamburino want to spend about $15 million state taxes to make the Illinois Prairie Path more dangerous for bicyclists and pedestrians than it is today!  Instead, voters want far safer and less costly solutions to fix the Path, possibly saving Illinois taxpayers $14 million.  Read the Hillside Neighbors “Prairie Path Plan“ at www.hillsideneighbors.com. Also, voters want Pritzker to build a Prairie Path bridge over Mannheim Rd. at Warren Ave. between Hillside and Bellwood for maximum safety.  Other villages have built bridges like this over busy roads for pathways.  To pay for the bridge, voters want Pritzker to shut down a controversial state project in Hillside that was never built and reassign its $2 million state grant. The Illinois Prairie Path was created in 1963 as the first rails-to-trails conversion in North America.  A recreational path for walking and bicycling, the Path extends 60 miles from Maywood (east) to Geneva (west.)  Where the Path crosses Mannheim Rd. at either the Mannheim Rd./Washington St. or Mannheim Rd./Madison St. intersections, users face dangerous, fast-moving trucks and vehicles turning from all directions.
