Kunwar Ranjeet Chauhan, Urdu Poet and Founder, Jashn-e-Adab Foundation talking about Cultural Kaarva’n – Virasat 2022 said, “Rooted in the past but with future relevance, Hindustani art, culture and literature is innately evergreen. Our art is calming and therapeutic for people of all generations. In the stressful life especially the youth seeks out solace in our Hindustani art. In the recent years we have seen a lot of young people making an effort to understand and embrace the enriching creations in Hindi and Urdu, using the power of the digital medium. Their interest is helping in making Hindustani art more mainstream. This motivates us to make Cultural Kaarva’n bigger and better with every new edition. We are forever grateful to Ministry of Culture (GoI) and Tourism Ministry (GoI) for their support and guidance. The resounding applause and encouraging response from the audience motivates us to curate better programs for them. The kaarva’n (caravan) will be traveling to other cities in India in the coming few months to reach a wider audience.”
