The India Rising Fest 2015

04 Feb 15

Published in Heritage

ShankhNaad became a part of the INDIA RISING Fest recently concluded in Mumbai.  Held between 14th January and 18th January 2015  in Ghatkopar Mumbai,

it was one of the biggest Fest of its kind, celebrating the glory of Sanatan Culture of Bharat. The fest was jointly organised by various organisations from across the country. There were those which supported the cause of Shankhnaad , Gau Raksha, Gau Seva and political support like that by the state BJP unit along with the Chief Minister himself, ISKCON ( International Society for Krishna Consciousness), Arise India Forum as well as some celebrities from Indian Film Industry.

The arena was full of various groups exhibiting their work and expertise from various branches of Sanatan social welfare works. There were different vibrant stalls, continuos seminars in 3 big seminars halls  on Sanathan Dharma, Guru shishya parampara and the sampradaya; its current status in the HINDU society and likewise.
There were also various stalls displaying handicrafts, antiques and related information.  The Shankhnaad corner was dedicated to highlighting the glory of ancient India, its rich culture, its technological advancements and its rich heritage.
In association with JEWELS OF BHARATAM, an initiative by Scholar Mr. Ravyi Kumar(known more for his popular ‘Indian History ~ Real truth’ discussion group on Facebook) with Rahul Priyadarshi and Mridu M from the Shankhnaad team. He was provided a helping hand by Sandeep Shetty , Pravin Jangid , Khushal Mehra, Dharmesh chokhadia, Prakash Sompura and Trupti Gadkar . The stall was put up in the BHARAT GATHA Hall.
Bharat Gatha and the skills displayed by Keral groups was enchanting the ancient art of Kalaripayattu – an art rather martial art which incorporates dance as well as self defence, one of the oldest culture of South India showcasing the skills of handling the Sword, the Dhaal, and the flexible sword which was a deterrent to British and moguls at that time of era.

Dignatories like Juhi Chawla (a noted film actor and producer), graced the occasion, along with other well known celebreties like Mukesh Khanna, Ayushman Khurana, and also Shri Subhash Ghai.

Mr. Subhash Ghai, a film director and producer (Mukta Arts) par excellence marked some very important topics pertaining to the selection of a Guru. He also gave some illustrations on the topic in his speech. He said that a teacher in school should be a person of optimum knowledge; The knowledge which she can further disseminate to the patrons or students. The Guru as is of Prime importance in  Hindu Vedic Culture where initially the kings used to send their children to the “GURUKUL” in order to gain knowledge of arts, science, spirituality and dharma as well as skills of governance, administration, warfare and diplomacy.
He also warned that the native Indian culture is fast getting corrupted by blind westernisation and cultural obfuscation, which is dangerous as we tend to forget our roots. Our indigenous culture and Sanskrit language are of prime importance and should not be forgotten with the advent of foreign languages and cultures.
Maintaining our culture and spiritual binding comes from a GURU who is herself well grounded and perfect in their teachings. So the step to Godhead goes through the Guru and thus selection of that Guru is of prime importance. Which also what Sanathan Dharma teaches.
The event ended with Shri Ayushman Khurana's short preview of his upcoming film 'Hawaizada', which was followed by a short speech by him. 

Such events should be carried forward and should be encouraged by one and all in the Hindu Society, which gives a gateway for progress to citizens who want to explore more into the facts, and culture of Bharat.
All in all the fest was a feast for the eyes and brain of the common man who is devoid of such cultural BUFFET and its promising that next year onwards the crowd would be more encouraging in terms of strength and attendance.
It surely is a very good beginning to the new year 2015 , starting from Makar Sankranti !

Following is the brief of the five day event:
First day was the theme called “Udaan”.
Udaan - Kite Flying. Mainly depicted in the fest were different programmes day wise to focus on Makar Sankranti,
Celebrating the Spirit of Rising.
The event Udaan is initiated to orchestrate & celebrate the quintessence of Makar Sankranti. Makar Sankranti is a Hindu festival celebrated in almost all parts of India in a myriad of cultural forms & is considered to be one of the most important harvest festival in India. The festival of Makar Sankranti marks the day when winter begins to turn into summer, according to the Vedic calendar. It is the sign for farmers that the sun is back and that harvest season is approaching.
The Second Day “Dharohar”
Dharohar: The India Heritage Exhibition
“Dharohar” is a representation of India Heritage Exhibition unraveling the marvels of Bharatiya Civilization. A Sanskrit term for ‘Legacy’, “Dharohar” will translate Indian heritage into an Atlas journey consisting of glorious past, happening present and potent future.
India is considered the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only. “Dharohar” seeks to present insights into subject matters of Historic & Intrinsic value to India.

The Third Day was Kalaalaya - My Art Beats for India
“Kalaalaya” is an avenue for appreciation of Indian Art & Artisans. “Kalaalaya” celebrates the kaleidoscope of colours that is India. It is the insignia of exquisite art & craft in the form of various paintings, weaves embroideries etc. It brings about the cultural initiatives for preserving & recreating some of the finest Indian heritage artwork. The aim of setting up a “Kalaalaya” is to provide a parlance where small-scale industries and other underprivileged craftsmen can get a platform for expression by displaying products made in different parts of the country.

The Fourth Day, was the RATH- Mohotsav
Rathotsavam - Replica of Jagannath Cart Festival of Puri in the streets of Ghatkopar!!!
India Rising Team have greatly embarked upon themselves the task of propagating Spiritual Knowledge, Unity, Peace & Teachings of Dharma amongst the masses. As a part of its active endeavour, the India Rising Team had undertaken upon themselves, the task of organizing the world famous festival of Rathotsavam on Saturday, 17th January 2014.

The fifth and Final day : Bharat Gaatha-India's epic influence on the world
A day to celebrate India’s glorious contributions to the world. India is considered the Land of firsts. With more serious research being conducted in Indology (academic discipline concerned with the study of the history of Indian Subcontinent) more and more phenomenons are being attributed to historical Indian antecedents. It is being argued that not just the decimal system of counting but some of the first surgical operating techniques originated from India. The inquiry, that the first air plane was flown by an Indian, is gaining momentum. Claims of Indian Civilization predating the civilizations of Sumer and Egypt are also being re-investigated. “Bharat Gaatha” shall contribute to this ongoing discussion by bringing out such facts that decorate India's undisputed antiquity with advanced scientific innovations, great philosophical thought and intercontinental commercial spread. The impression, that India has left on the world's civilizations in the past and which remains definite yet hidden, needs to be re-introduced first to modern Indians and then to the world.

    I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
