The Seva format that is already popular in cities like Ahmedabad and Mumbai is now coming to Chennai. Do you know how the pop-up Seva Cafe format actually works? The person who comes before you pays the bill for you. Yes, its al about selfless service. The guests are also free to pay the way they want and this money, which they pay goes to the next person who comes to Seva cafe. Seva Cafe has been active for six years and has served more than 80000 gifts. The cafe has different cuisines for different kind of events. If it is a group of Spanish people, they are inviting, they have exclusive Spanish dishes. In the year 2014, they celebrated the Hebrew’s New Year eve with the same concept. They also had songs and prayers at the same event which was a big hit with the Hebrew people. They have a strong concept which is followed too – #AthithiDevoBhava which means ‘Guest is god’. They do live up to it; a lot of effort is taken to make the food tasty and hygienic. The other good thing about this concept is that people can volunteer to serve and spread the message about the cafe. So, obviously, now Chennaiites get their chance too to volunteer for Seva cafe.
The pop-up Seva in Chennai will be a little different as they are going to be conducting it in the Schizophrenia Research Foundation on East Coast Road. Yogesh Parmer said that it may be in an orphanage or an institute for destitute women in the next month. The Seva cafe is known for doing different things and coming up with creative ideas. Activities before the event include shopping for the food and cooking, keeping Chennai people in mind. The concept of Seva cafe pop-up is there in many countries like France and London. The event in Chennai will be handled by the people who helped in the previous Seva event which was conducted in Bangalore. To volunteer with the Seva pop-up cafe , you can call- 9884444711.
