Patronage to Indian classical music is drastically decreasing and fewer than 5% of faculty college students within the nation pursue any type of artwork, stated founding father of Delhi-based Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Tradition Amongst Youth (SPIC MACAY) founder Kiran Seth.
To maintain the Indian tradition and classical music alive, 73-year-old Mr. Kiran Seth, a former IIT-Delhi professor, has taken up a cycle journey from Kashmir to Kanyakumari to advertise and emphasise the significance of classical music and dance, people music & dance, meditation and yoga amongst college students in colleges.
As a part of his cycle expedition, Mr. Seth, who’s now in Andhra Pradesh, instructed mediapersons in Anantapur on Saturday that the organisation, with the help of lots of of volunteers, is organising 5,000 programmes in 800 cities throughout the nation.
Set out with three units of garments from Srinagar on August 15, Mr. Kiran Seth expects to achieve Kanyakumari on January 31. He rides a easy cycle with no gears or disc brakes.
From Anantapur, he intends to achieve his vacation spot through Penukonda, Bengaluru, Vellore, Chennai, Puducherry, Tiruchirappalli.
“At SPIC MACAY, we goal at inspiring college students to take lively curiosity in Indian artwork types by organising traditional cinema screenings, talks by eminent individuals, heritage walks and craft workshops on faculty and faculty campuses,” he stated.
