NAI RAHEN is your story, our story and a story of everybody. We are at the cross road of Old and NEW era. On the side we want to survey a new perspective, evolve a new mode of living, create a new society, on the other side we desperately cling to old values old customs ad old creeds. Thus creating confusion and tragedy.

To-day the time is demanding a change, a complete change. And if we fail to bring about that change, we will be lost, doomed. The customs and creeds which were holding once, have ceased to be true measures today. We must evolve a new angle, a completely human outlook to avert the tragedies and thus save the new generation from disaster....

In life it is human being which matters and not customs and creeds.....
