Walking as the World Peace & Friendship Movement, Nitin Sonawane, engineer turned peace activist, talks on the eve of leaving Georgia where he was sheltered by a family during the coronavirus restrictions.
Heading for Turkey, Nitin does not know where he will stay, eat along the way or find the next stable Wi-Fi. His open manner has seen him through East Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe. The discussion pivots on sharing of ideas, cultures and food. Nitin has just completed a 450km walk raising funds for migrant workers in India caught in the Covid-19 chaos, unable to feed their families.
A World Peace and Friendship Walk with Nitin Sonawane is part of the Exhibition stage with the fantastic Madras Café Unlocked.

About Madras Café Unlocked
As a result of COVID-19, WOMAD festival 2020 has been cancelled which has a huge impact on Madras Café and AVI. This is normally a key fundraising event and an opportunity to raise awareness about AVI’s solidarity with rural communities across India. Our re-imagined event, Madras Café Unlocked brings you a summer of online content in support of Action Village India and partners. We launch our five ‘stages’: Madras Café Family, Madras Boombox, Food for Thought, Partnerships & Solidarity and our Exhibition: Food for Justice and Peace on the 24th, 25th & 26th of July and events will run throughout the summer up to 26th September, when we conclude with an International meal in support of Jai Jagat 2020.
