Garba Dance

Garba is a form of dance which originated in the state of Gujarat in India. The name is derived from the Sanskrit term Garbha (“womb”) and Deep (“a small earthenware lamp”). Many traditional garbas are performed around a centrally lit lamp or a picture or statue of the Goddess Shakti. The circular and spiral figures of garba have similarities to other spiritual dances, such as those of Sufi culture (garba being an earlier tradition). Traditionally, it is performed during the nine-day Hindu festival Navaratri Nava = 9,nights). Either the lamp (the Garba Deep) or an image of the Goddess, Durga (also called Amba) is placed in the middle of concentric rings as an object of veneration.

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 (  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.

Does the Divine exist in all things, even in the dustbin?
The whole universe is the manifestation of the Divine, but a manifestation which begins with a total unconsciousness of its origin and rises little by little towards this consciousness.
