  • I was born into a lower middle-class family in India and saw my family struggle to make ends meet. My maternal uncle helped me migrate from India to Oman to pursue better opportunities in my professional career. 
I am Jagdip Bhatia, an Indian expat living in Oman since 1982. The most challenging part about moving away from home was the thought of living away from my father. As a new expat in Oman, I missed the life lessons he passed onto me during our father-son conversations. I missed our shared passion for music and penchant for musical instruments.
Since it was the pre-internet and video calling area, I devised a unique way of conversing with my father. Instead of writing letters, I started recording my questions, observations, thoughts and conversations in cassettes and sending them to him through family and friends visiting India. I also saved money and gifted my father a cassette player so that he could reply to my cassettes by recording his experiences and his advice for me. My dad’s voice was that feeling of home, and I waited patiently for it each time. It was the only way to nurture my relationship with my father, even though we were miles apart.
To feel closer to home, I started pursuing my passion for music, photography and cricket, in Oman. Soon I found myself actively participating and organizing cultural activities for the expat community in Oman. In 2014, life came a full circle when I started the Muscat Kathiyawadi Pariwar (MKP) with two other co-founders. Through MKP we organized musical performances for migrant workers by visiting their camp accommodations on weekends. Soon we realized that there were talented singers among the migrant workers who deserved a platform to showcase their skills and fulfil their dreams. Over the years, we have helped them find the sound of their music outside the alleys of their labor accommodations.

  • Felice e Santo giorno 🌼 "Dio non forza nessuno: accetta quanto gli si dà. Ma Egli non si dà del tutto se non a coloro che si danno del tutto a Lui". (Santa Teresa d'Avila). Costringi le persone ad amarti? Se la risposta è sì, probabilmente quello che sto per dirti potrebbe non farti del tutto piacere. Andiamo per gradi. Sei una persona che difende o attacca? Invadi con prepotenza gli spazi altrui oppure entri nel cuore di qualcuno in punta di piedi?. Se il Signore facesse pressione sul tuo libero arbitrio, non avrebbe neppure senso avertelo donato con tutto se stesso. Per lo stesso motivo non puoi pretendere da Dio di avere ogni cosa se poi tu lo ami tenendolo a debita distanza. È come possedere una statuetta di un Santo da baciare, ma poi amare o meno il prossimo come tu vuoi amare e non amare come Dio ti ama. Il Signore fa silenzio sul tuo dire, sulla base della conoscenza che ha del tuo cuore. Egli sa quando eviti di amarlo o amarlo soltanto abbastanza. Credo che anche tu, nella tua vita, decidi di amare e contraccambiare secondo ciò che comanda il tuo cuore e di "riconoscere" però coloro che hanno saputo amarti in totale abbondanza. Con un senso di riconoscenza, gratitudine.
Dio dona ad ogni suo figlio con la stessa misura. Però Egli dona senza alcuna misura, a chi più Lo ama. Dio ti benedica ✨
