In a collaborative drive to ensure road safety, Tapas Foundation along with Confederation of Indian
Industry(CII), Young Indians & Yi Bhopal conducted a Road Safety Awareness Campaign in Bhopal,
Madhya Pradesh. We inaugurated the campaign by taking over the road through a Bike Rally where 40
riders came along in their gear and glory to spread the message of road safety. We collaborated with
Bhopal Riders Community for the rally.

With the support of IEHE NSS Bhopal, we performed 10 street plays on road safety in Bhopal city and
Adampur Chhawani. Street play has always been a great medium for us to connect with the public. As a
part of the campaign, we created awareness about sensible honking in and near 15 hospital premises in
Bhopal. We also hosted an awareness session for ISBT bus and highway truck drivers on various safety
measures that they should always follow.

Team Tapas also engaged with children during the campaign but on a more colourful note – through
drawing and quiz competitions. We covered 15 schools in the city and screened a short film – Chota Cop
for the students which is based on road safety. With Foster For Furrballs, an organisation working for
animal welfare, we ensured the safety of stray cattle who are often the victims of road accidents,
especially during the night. We did a radium strip drive to cover their horns with neon reflective bands
which will make them visible during the night and protect them from any unforeseen accidents.
It was a very fulfilling and effective campaign where we came together to ensure road safety. We want
to thank our collaborative partners – We Care, Young Indians Bhopal, Bhopal Riders Community, IEHE
NSS Bhopal, Foster For Furrballs and Mayank Kapoor for their generous contribution that made this
campaign a great success.

Kaun Zimmedar

The ravaging effects of the Covid-19 pandemic were felt by all of us in India. We have all lost a known one, directly or indirectly. Social media was flooded with images of suffering, of loss, of desperation and chaos and people gathered themselves to take on the fatal battle with the pandemic and its consequences. 
Tapas Foundation has collaborated with the Hip-Hop crew MP04, and their member Rabbit the Villain, all hailing from Madhya Pradesh, to bring out this track ‘Kaun Zimmedar’. Through the song and the video we urge the people to acknowledge the wrongdoings that have taken place, to ask the right questions, and most of all to offer support to those who need it the most. The music for the song was given life by Ezik from Chandigarh, who has also mix-mastered it. 
This compelling video was shot and directed by Snehdip Biswas, and the edit was done by Psybaa. You can also find the album artwork on our Instagram @tapasfoundind by Nitya Bellani @itsajpeg.

Project Thirst

‘Either give us water, or poison us and be done with us.’ This is what a mother of 8 children, Kashi had to say about the extreme water crisis in her village in Maharashtra.

This is the shared feeling of all the locals of remote areas like Mhaismal, Gadwal, Dandichibari, Deola, Sirispada and Pangarne. These are people who have been struggling with water crisis for so long that they have grown old dealing with it.

Nobody wants to marry their children into this crisis. Yet, people like Kashi and thousands of others are stuck in the grueling daily routine of procuring water, going far and out, often being forced to dig it out from shallow, muddy pools. They have to routinely risk their lives for water by getting into the depths of fast depleting deep-wells. Nobody listens to their plight. Year in, year out, nothing changes. And life struggles with thirst. ‘Project Thirst’ was an attempt to capture this struggle and bring it to the world. It was an attempt to get their voices to reach those in a position to make a difference. If this is achieved even remotely, the initiative would be a success.
