A cultural fest is one of the best ways to get in touch with your roots. With all the developmental advancements that are currently taking the country by storm, it is easy to lose sight of your heritage. If you’re looking for a break from all of that, be sure to pay a visit to Arth. Arth is a three day cultural and heritage festival that celebrates every cultural milestone that India has forgotten in the past.
India is a country with one of the most vibrant, diverse and sundry cultures as can be. To have an event that captures the essence of cultures from all over the country would be something on an epic scale. That is exactly what Arth aims to do. With the event, their goal is to celebrate art, literature, culture, music and history of India in a way that has never been done before.
The festival will bring together thinkers, speakers, cultural experts and artisans from all over the country, and they will represent their state in all cultural spheres be it music, literature, art and everything in between. India’s first Multi Region culture festival will be organized in Delhi from February 8 to February 10.
At its core the highlights of the event will be the musical and dance performances by musicians and dance troupes from across the country. The festival will also have regional food from all parts of the country so you can quell the foodie in you. From the Kashmiri Rogan Josh to the Appam and Stew of Kerala, the festival has all the regional food you can imagine.
Looking for something to make the mind gears churn?
