Good evening with big a smile.
I have to share good news and not so good news. As everyone know, I have been looking for cafe place for the last 3 years to open this " dream come true". But it is difficult because of the high prices for housing in Bombay...and besides that no one has reached out to help with any financial need. Most people read the articles and just mention that they like what they read, but nothing more then that.
Believe me if I tell you that its so difficult and not easy for me knowing that so many people know about the project, and wether they are in a fortunate and strong possision or not, not anyone came up to say; "Amin, let’s work together and find the way to make this cafe dream for real". There are a few ANGELS that gave all what was in their reach.They know and feel what the project is all about and share their empathy and love for it. They walk with me even though they live miles away, but at the same time close to the heart. Hand in hand they are making sure that I will never give up this objective, this dream cafe.This project of love for the benefit of these children who can have the opportunity to develop working in "their" dream cafe. Believe it or not, those friends who are with me on this project are with me from day one! These are the ANGELS that believe in the better.
I have found a place in Mumbai ,Andheri EAST M.I.D.C. The price is around 20,000,000 Rupees, so in Euros would be around 300 thousand. I am giving the example in Euros because most of the ANGELS who have been helping me, are from EUROPE.
After a 2 hours talk with the constructors/landlords they finally settled this price. The constructors do not really care for my motivation and intention behind the project. As businessman they only care about the money and they do not have the empathy to give me time and understanding to start this beautiful project.
I like this place for many reasons, it is a calm place, green, and it can have a space where people can read books in a calmness, meet with social activities and events, like talks, conventions, have a coffee, tea and a healthy snack quietly and peacefully and avoid the rush or running around all the time.
I would like to offer to people a moment where they can come in touch with themselves and enjoy and appreciate the products they are consuming which are made with love and care. These days we eat without any knowledge about the products we consume. Its all so "plastic" and superficial.This is the way it is nowadays and also most of the places in Mumbai are very dirty. To me, the most important things a café should have hygene, and a good share of the sun light and fresh air. Not to mention clean and comfortable mens and ladies washrooms. Without these characteristics, a café cannot come in existence. After all, what people need is good health and mindfulness. Thus, all these circumstances should come together. Proper hygene, peace and tranquil environment, and of course the quality of the products made with awareness and love to be served with kindness.
I don’t know how to obtain this place but I have only 30 days to fix the closure, and then 30 days more to make the first downpayment before the place gets locked out by someone else interested!!
