Autism Rocks Holds a Fun-Filled Event to Raise Funds for Research and Awareness on Autism

An article published by Xpress on March 30, 2016 revealed plans by Autism Rocks to host a fun-filled festival later on April 1 just before the beginning of the Dubai Autism Awareness month. In a bid to attract large crowds and get the youth involved, the foundation banked on the performance of top global artists such as Tyga and Flo Rida.

Further, the festival was set to host other activities for families in attendance such as rodeo bull, crazy golf, live music, petting zoo, bouncy castle, face painting, horse rides, inflated rides as well as barbecue. Consistent with Autism Rocks’ tradition to host top DJs for its concerts, DJ Fever and BFG were named as the official DJs of the event, which also included 117 Live as an official partner.

Usha Shah, the wife of Sanjay Shah Denmark, asserted that personal commitment was the primary drive for making a difference in society. Autism Rocks was established in a bid to transform the manner in which autistic individuals are seen or treated in society. Usha told Xpress that she and her husband, Sanjay, wanted to make an effort for other autistic individuals like their son, Nikhil.

Who is Sanjay Shah

Sanjay Shah is widely known in various spheres for his business acumen and philanthropic efforts. He was raised in Central London, specifically in the Marylebone neighborhood. Shah changed his career path from a doctor to an accountant after realizing he had no interest in pursuing a medical career. Consequently, after studying accounting, he went ahead to work for various top financial institutions such as Dutch bank Rabobank, ING, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley as well as Merrill Lynch. The financial crisis of 2009 triggered a significant change in Shah’s life, as he opted to establish his brokerage business through the help of several graduates who he hired to work in a small rented office. This marked the birth of Solo Capital.

Shah has created a business empire for himself by operating and running a myriad of companies situated in Dubai, London, The British Virgin Islands, The Cayman Islands, Luxembourg as well as Malta. He is highly credited for his philanthropic role in promoting awareness regarding autism through his Autism Rocks foundation. The Foundation has been in a position to raise millions of funds for autism research work by holding concerts, which are graced by top celebrities in the music industry such as Michael Buble, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Lenny Kravitz, as well as renowned Deejays.

Malini Saba Shows That Woman Can Be A Powerful Force in Business

I am always impressed by strong women who rise above their challenges and do something great with their life. Such is the case with South Asian’s most recognizable philanthropist Malini Saba. As the chairman of Saban, her career and history are impressive, to say the least. She does a great deal of work with at-risk women and children. She uses the Global Investments in Women platform, a company she started back in 2001. It was the former United States President, Bill Clinton, that inaugurated her to her office. She is striving to bring legal empowerment and health care to impoverished women around the globe.

In reading her daily routine online, I was humbled. Saba gets up at 5 am every morning to have enough time to get things done. However, one of the most important parts of her morning is her daughter. She not only gets her ready for school, but they walk together to and from school each day. She leaves at 7 am for the commute to the school and her office again at 3 pm to pick her up. Sure, she has cars and plenty of people at her disposal, but taking care of her daughter is one responsibility that she takes great pleasure in doing.

I admire her for making the time for her child even though she is so pressed for time. I can’t get my two children out the door without a major catastrophe each day, let alone walking them to school. Saba says that this time is what they use as their special bonding time. They talk and laugh the whole way. It just shows that a woman fighting for woman and children has her priorities in line.

As a busy, business professional, she attends many meetings each day. Malini has made a rule that a meeting should never go over the 45-minute mark. Meetings that go over this mark are abruptly halted. She feels that anything that needs to be said can be done within this time frame. During these meetings, she is not one who is going to skirt issues. She takes the bull by the horns and is not afraid to tackle the tough issues of the day. Some say this is why she has gained so much notoriety in her short tenure is due to her ability to push through resistance. Malini Saba is one woman I admire greatly.
