Director’s message

As we wind up the first quarter of the Year of Culture, we are delighted to note how well the events were received. The panel discussions on ‘Religion and the Empowerment of Women: A multi faith perspective’ and ‘Healing Hands: Women’s health and holistic remedies from Asia’ highlighting Ayurveda, Jamu and Acupuncture were held to mark the International Women’s Day. An Exhibition of Ajrakh, a dying art form, showcasing masterpieces of the national awardee was very much appreciated. So was His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda’s talk on Yoga-Vedanta concepts in traditional meditation practices and Clem Alford’s Sitar concert.
