Beloved India

Vibrant, lively Aparajita Barai has stopped at our radio this morning bringing news on inauguration of her first solo exhibition tomorrow, Thursday 17that 5pm at Kala Kendra, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India, and her interesting workshop next week. One - title of the exhibition derives from the note that everything is ONE...we are one, god and goddesses are one... Aparajita is searching through symbolism of spiritually and mythology because she has realized that all the symbols became in India very ritualistic, and people stopped questioning themselves what do they mean. This way Aparajita will try to demystify Indian deities. Beloved India (www.belovedindia.com       www.facebook.com/belovedindia)  is a brand coming from Aparjita's studying business plan some years back while she realized that being a designer and creating a design is a process of solving a problem. As she sees it India has many problems, and out of commercial business she would like to continue with social projects.

Garba is a dance form originated in Gujarat, performed during Navratri – a 9-day festival of Goddess Durga. It is also known as Garbi, Garbha or Garbha Deep. In ‘Garbha Deep’, the word ‘Garbha’ is a Sanskrit term, which means womb and ‘Deep’ means little earthen lamps. Garba is usually performed in a circle around a big lamp or the statue of Goddess Shakti.

The Garba Dance Festival was celebrated amidst much colour and music at SAWCHU, Bharat Nivas between the 14th and 18th of October. Here we talk to the organizers Shilpa, Falguni and Rakhee about the festival in an Auroville context.
