Heritage Education Tour for School & College Students
The culture of India is the artificial aggregate of the cultural heritage of many societies, religions, and ethnic groups in the region, traditionally called a sub-continent from a Western-centric perspective of Asia. Both geographically but culturally too, this part of the world has had a great sense of unity and common history for its cultures and peoples. Therefore, South Asia can also be called a distinct continent in itself.

Art, music and cuisine, as well as literature are important parts of the larger Indian culture. Eastern philosophy and religion also plays a major role with Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Sikhism, Confucianism and Christianity all playing major roles. One of the most complex parts of Indian culture is the relationship between traditional cultures and the Western world.

The Indus Valley Civilization began on the Indus River (now in Pakistan). In time, however, Aryans settled down in the Indian subcontinent from the north. The Aryans also invaded the island of Sri Lanka and set up the Kingdom of Sinhala. The people eventually mingled to form a common culture.

Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with. Heritage of India and its past is something that sets it apart. Our country has a priceless cultural heritage rooted in what is essentially Indian. India is an enchanting country that exhibits a huge treasure of architecture, art, philosophy, classical / folk music and dances. With the onslaught of rapid change and global homogenization, this multifaceted heritage is being increasingly marginalize and diluted. We will find that our cultural heritage, originates from various elements of culture; namely, dance, musical heritage sculpturing and other types of fine arts, languages spoken, festivities, traditional customs and beliefs and so on. These aspects make our culture vibrant. As a part of our main motto, we aim to showcase this generation some of the best examples of our living culture, traditions and heritage on the tour. The main purpose of the trip is to ensure that the students are enlightened with the diversity, cultures and our traditions; and thus respect each other’s mutual co-existence. Henceforth to make our trip more interactive and fun filled we arrange guest / expert talks, cultural/folk dance forms, heritage walks to monuments and musical performances like qawwali, classical dances etc. which will reflect culture of the place we are travelling in. To make our trip more exciting we can also plan art and craft workshops, debates, essay writing, project report, along with others. All the winners shall be awarded for their talent and hard-work.

Knowledge is incomplete until all the aspects are covered and dealt with in full depth. So, our young generation is taken to experience the versatility of our country such as the rich Heritage, composite culture, religious practices, Political history, environments, food tradition, classical & folk traditions of each region. We also take some good historians, artiste’s to travel with the student. This live experience of the culture of India will bring a young person from different ethnic background closer to the broad concept, i.e. India.

The heritage education trip wherein 1000 students from different corners of country shall share a common platform to explore the rich heritage of our country. Not only do students get a chance to explore the historical background but also it gives a chance to the students to learn and explore the diversified cultures of their co members who have come from all the four corners of the country. It presents an excellent opportunity to The 10 days heritage trip, shall be a combination of fun, frolic and learning; most importantly Inspiring. Throughout the journey we will aim to present a few guest talks by eminent heritage experts. We aim to provide holistic foods of the states we are travelling by, during the course of our journey. Coming from an environment of structures and pressures the heritage tour aims to strike a balance of spending time in self-reflection and community engagement.

“An idea originates and finds someone through whom it can manifest itself”.
Same is the case with the Heritage Education Tour that fortunate someone experiences during the birth process, a feeling which is beyond description.

PEACE & HARMONY THROUGH EXCHANGE OF PEOPLE, CULTURE, MUSIC AND ARTS
Cultural exchange, dialogue and heart to heart connection between people are the key to gradually dilute the misunderstandings and fears between all the countrymen. Music, rhythm and arts touches the hearts beyond borders. We understand the importance of cultural heritage and connections between the people to build sustained and lasting peace.

This Heritage Education Tour is a step ahead in the direction, an effort to bring students / youth of the country closer to each other’s heart and thus enjoy their co-existence & company.

Finally, we want each student to get inspired and enriched with the knowledge and be able to look at things with a different perspective altogether !!
