The magnificence and grandeur of Delhi’s most celebrated place of expressing emotion had to be saved. And what better way to protect culture than bringing together the very people it represents!Inline image 1

The stage at Akshara had been designed to last for hundreds of years, to be an oasis of Indian thinking and culture, to be one of the eminent intellectual hubs of the country’s life. The theatre is home to hundreds of people who go there in search of joy, emotion and illumination. This image was jeopardised when the theatre was in dire need of a total of Rs. 5,00,000 to pay its electricity bills.

Thankfully, crowdfunding came to the rescue. As soon as their campaign went live, the huge community that Akshara had built throughout the years came together and decided to do everything it could to protect the lights from going off.

A mountain sized target of five lakhs did not seem too big with the overwhelming support of theatre lovers and their campaign got overfunded in just a month!

The power of crowdfunding and Akshara’s community made sure that no force whatsoever can bring down the curtains!

So, if you’ve got an idea, it’s time you take a leap of faith and turn it into a successful crowdfunding campaign.

I hope you got all the positive reinforcement you need to start a campaign. Write to us at or tweet to us on Twitter @BitGiving if you have any questions!
