In light of recent acts of violence and the impending danger faced by Indian citizens all over the country, the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce and Priyadarshni Academy arranged for an interactive workshop on ‘The Art of Self Defense/Protection’ by leading Hollywood actor Glen Levy at the Indian Merchants Chamber Hall on May 22, 2013. The primary objective of the program was to teach people how to best defend themselves when faced with an adverse situation. The session laid emphasis on the safety and security of women and Glen personally pointed out specific techniques which women could use to defend themselves.
Glen Levy and the New Zealand-based group Rock Your Life are in India to reach hundreds of audiences through this workshop to cultivate preventive techniques to curb the occurrence of such attacks. They are working through Indian groups including The Sage Foundation to reduce the menace.
Rock Your Life, under its film production wing, is also making preparations during the current trip to produce a film based on Bhagawad Gita in India where we have the opportunity to see Glen dawn the avatar of the chivalrous Arjun.
