The endeavor is to bring together different viewpoints from various art styles onto a common platform. The views and opinions by various invited guests of imminence in their respective fields, and art enthusiasts will enable understanding of the evolving nature of the Indian arts and its appreciation and relevance in today’s age.          
 
Social Impact through Arts (SITA) Initiative:
 
Our world is changing rapidly and the space between different sections of society is shrinking. If we have to progress as a society it is imperative to have ‘collective inclusion’ of all these sections and address the challenges faced by any particular section as a societal issue. Increasing co-dependence and daily interactions makes it impossible to label any issue as ‘class specific’. Besides other factors, it is important to bridge the ‘mind gap’ between these sections so that we all co-evolve in a mutually secure and progressive society. Aadyantara’s SITA Initiative, launched in April 2014, is a step in this direction. By drawing upon the common threads of art & culture, the SITA Initiative aims to address and unknot these very complicated and intertwined social issues.

The medium of Arts is a powerful one and people connect with this on a personal level. Besides highlighting the need to preserve the art forms as means of traditional inheritance, it is equally important to highlight arts as tools for enhancing self control, self empowerment and mental focus. Secondly, it’s a wonderful medium for verbal and non-verbal communication and can be accessed for raising awareness to societal issues.
         
 
 
Literary Arts & Publication:
The impact of the written word, both through print and digital media, is immense. Aadyantara uses these mediums to engage writers, youth, children and general public on various topics from time to time. In the near future we will come out with periodic newsletters and books addressing specific areas of art. Recently Aadyantara launched its own publication division which will be involved in these activities.
 
The first book published under Aadyantara Publications, ‘Swayamdeepa’ written by Dr Madhuri Subodh, was released in April this year. ‘Swayamdeepa’ or self enlightened is a women centric play based on the story of Devyani, daughter of Guru Shukracharya from the great epic Mahabharat.
 
The second book, ‘Man mera Vrindavan’ by Dr Madhuri Subodh, is expected to be released by the end of the year. The play depicts the life and work of the famous bhakti poetess, Meera. In addition to Meera’s poems, the play will include original poems and compositions by Dr Subodh. view more
