My Third Seminar on Indian Heritage and Culture

Yesterday in Amalapuram i conducted my Third Seminar on Indian Heritage and Culture.

In Amalapuram there will be one Hanuman Temple in Yarramilli vari Veedhi. The Hanuman Temple authorities established a Trust named "Akondi Simhachalam Trust" and every year they are conducting Hanumad (Hanumath) Vrathams, Poojas and also at the same time in the part of these Hanuman pooja celebrations they are also conducting Samskruti Utsav. During the course of this week long celebrations every year they are performing Pujas, Homam etc. and also being in a part they are encouraging young children by conducting quiz competions, dress competitions, essay writing, drawing competions etc. about our Indian Heritage and Culture. Mr.Akondi Pavan  is organising all these events with the help of his family members and other people. Being Amalapuram is my home town sometimes i went to my native place and during my recent visit 2 months at that time i saw their banner about Samskrit Utsav 2014 celebrations which held in November month ending. After seeing that banner i contacted Mr.Pavan for my participation in these celebrations and i explained about my hobby, my collections relating to Indian Heritage and Culture and also about my previous seminars which i gave to young children. He allotted gave sunday i.e. yesterday 30th November, 2014 full day time for my participation in Samskiriti Utsav. Usually i am giving such presentations and seminars on sundays and weekend evenings only because in the remaining time i have in office.

This is my Third Seminar on Indian Heritage and Culture which i presented to young children. 

In the part of seminar i am displaying my original paintings collections of Madhubani paintings, Kalamkari paintings, Cherial paintings, Cherial Masks, Phad paintings and Midnapore Patachitra paintings in the hall which allotted to me.

There 25 tables provided for my collections. Along with the above original paintings collections i am also sharing 30 different porfolios (souvenirs/brochures) relating to various themes (i.e. monuments, mythology, paintings etc. many themes) of Indian Heritage and Culture.

In the part of seminar i am explaining children about each and every object of my collection which i displayed there. After explaining the children about various aspects of our Indian Heritage and Culture from my collection i am conducting a small test to children by giving questions (fill in the blanks) to them. Children are very curiously watching my collections and clarified their doubts and they are showing very keen interested in participating the test.

These are some photographs which taken yesterday during the course of my interaction with several children by explaining them about our glorious Heritage and Culture.

  29. శ్రీనివాస్ గారు,
    మీరు చేస్తున్న సేవ గొప్పది. ముందుతరాలకు తెలియని సంగతులను, పాఠాల్లో లేని గొప్ప చరిత్రను, సంస్కృతిని తెలియజేయాలన్న మీ తపనకు నమోవాకాలు. కానీ వ్యాఖ్య వ్రాసేవారు కూడా ఆంగ్లంలో వ్రాయమన్న అభ్యర్థన ఎందుకో అర్థం కాలేదు. అంత అవసరమేమి?
    i appreciate your service to our culture.It is great to know
    about your commitment to provide knowledge about our history
    which is not in acadamic books.
    But I am puzzled about your request to comment in english.

  30. Dear Srinivasu

    In my childhood days i have regularly seen many of our age old folk traditions like Tholubommalata, Yakshaganam, Kolatam, Haridasu, Gangireddulu, Thappetagullu, Budabukkalu etc. Now-a-days even in villages also we hardly seen any of these performances. It is an highly appreciable effort from your side as you are taking so much pains to preserve and documenting the old tradtions, cultures and customs of our glorious country.

    You are taking a arduous task of educating our younger generations about the importance and significance of Indian Heritage and Culture. This particular task is highly commendable.

    Best wishes for your efforts and i am sure one day you are getting fruitful output for your dedication to preserve our glorious heritage.

  42. Dear Dokka Srinu Garu,
    I'm also one of cherial painting artist.....i also contributed many and got many awards from from cetral as well as state government. plz contact me if u have any at #09848581044. HYD

  43. u did a great job thanks to u sharing with me so many things......i get a goo d informations from u

  44. There are variety of professions in various industries such as Accounting, Analytics, Marketing, IT, Finance etc. So the main concern is to choosing the best job-oriented short term courses when so many courses are available for a short period of time. This short term courses enables you to boost your professional skills and helps in move up the corporate ladder.

  45. In a Country like India, it is not viable to think about religion without Culture and traditions. Since ages, the Dharma has been transmitted in the form of cultures and Traditions.Every Tradition has some sanctity and practicality(scientific too sometimes) attached to it. During the earlier times, these things have been incorporated into the brains of younger ones through stories, Songs, Satsangs etc. And sometimes visiting a religious place also gives us an understanding about forgotten or hidden cultures or traditions. By considering the present day wordt circumstances, the job you are doing is actually the greatest service on can offer to this Veda Bhoomi.
