quotes We are calling for brave and compassionate Bangaloreans to take part in this unique event and first of its kind in India. Simply put, we are asking 1500+ individuals to sleep out in the open on the night of 1st October – no tent or gazebo, just a blanket, a pillow and a couple of good friends or colleagues to share in the challenge and experience of one night Under the Stars. quotes
