prakrity sessions

Prakrity Sessions, not just an electronic music internet radio show, but also a fundraiser for the education of underprivileged children in Nepal. Prakrity started this weekly internet radio show in July 2011 with a goal to raise more awareness of the needs of underprivileged children in Nepal, where Prakrity is from, and with a focus to raise awareness across a younger audience who caters to electronic music in general (since it's never too early to start).

Prakrity has been dj'ing since 2001 and producing electronic music even before that, with his first release having come out in 1999. For his "day job" Prakrity is involved in social entrepreneurship, i.e., running a 30+ year old rug manufacturing family business that focuses on giving back to the community, starting with its employees, by providing countless perks, such as free education for the children of the employees and free health insurance for both the employees as well as their children. The social wing of the family business, Hoste Hainse, a non-profit which manages and oversees all programs run under social entrepreneurship currently runs four non-profit free-for-all community schools in the rural south of Nepal (Sarlahi) touching the lives of over 2,000 underprivileged children. More information @ www.hostehainse.org.

Hoste Hainse

As the years passed and Prakrity found a huge difference in his "customers" between his "day job" and his "night job", he thought it would be important to raise more awareness amongst his "night job" customers, as each and every one of us is human, and we all have an innate desire to help out other human beings, especially less fortunate ones. Hence, starting in the summer of 2011, Prakrity has been dedicating all his "night job" activities towards raising awareness of the needs of underprivileged children in Nepal.

In addition to awareness, listeners to the radio show also have the ability to financially contribute; thus, the fundraiser. The way it works is that almost every track that Prakrity features on his weekly electronic music internet radio show is available for purchase through the Prakrity Sessions WebSite @ www.prakrity.com. Tracks usually cost as little as $1, thanks to Amazon mp3, and the referral proceeds that Amazon pays to Prakrity Sessions is donated 100% to Hoste Hainse. In essence, it's a win-win for all parties involved -- (1.) the original artists who make the music, as the listeners purchase and download their tracks legally, (2.) the listeners, as they are able to purchase music at a very affordable price, almost always around $1, and (3.) most importantly, the underprivileged children in Nepal. More information @ radioshows.

Another aspect of the fundraiser is to campaign for $5 per month donations in perpetuity, regardless of whether a person purchases music or not. $5 per month is not a new idea; it has been used by numerous other non-profits in their fundraising activities. With recurring donations being able to be automated via websites like PayPal, we can essentially "outsource" the overhead of collection to a 3rd party, with low overhead (3%). More importantly, $5 per month is a small enough amount for a lot of us to keep giving for the rest of our lives. Now, the only thing left is volume.

The $5 fundraiser was launched with Prakrity Sessions 100, the 100th episode of Prakrity Sessions, which fell on Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday, May 25, 2013. A massive 4-hour radio show was broadcasted on both Revolution Radio, the then newest carrier of Pralaya Sessions, as well as the main website @ www.prakrity.com. The 4-hour special showcased the history of electronic music, to some extent, at least as far as how Prakrity experienced it growing up, spanning tracks from 1983 to 1999. Since then, the "History Lesson" has continued over episodes 200 in 2015, 300 in 2017 and more recently 400 in 2019.

Fundraising has not only been in the ether, but also on the ground. Prakrity Sessions 100 was not only celebrated with a massive radio show on the air, but also a huge party on the ground. In the Washington DC metro, the finest Nepali DJ's, namely DJ Sakar, DJ Ronnie, DJ Gorkhali, DJ Harkay and Prakrity, got together and donated their time and effort to host a $0 overhead event, where 100% of the funds collected at the door were donated to Hoste Hainse.

Now, in its 8th year of broadcast, Prakrity Sessions is still going strong with weekly shows, not only online @ www.prakrity.com and on Apple iTunes as a free subscribe-able podcast, but also on local fm in Kathmandu - Radio Nagarik 96.5 Mhz., which picked up the show in April of 2017 - it airs Friday nights 9pm local time.
