Folk Fair 2021 aims to emphasize the importance of tribal culture and establish its originality and uniqueness. It will also try to demonstrate how these inhabitants of this primeval land, their traditions, and practices have interpenetrated almost all the aspects of Indian culture and civilization. Attempts would be made to help the groups and individuals to showcase their talents in the preservation of their songs and dances as spectacular forms of tribal art and culture.
The tribal cultural heritage of India reverberates with a mosaic of rituals and practices which has the potential to rub shoulders of the greatest of ancient cultures in Africa, Asia, Egypt & China. Performing arts and convention-based rituals best represent the cultural health of a country. The Folk Fair which is launched by the Shree Shrikshetra Soochana (SSS) tries to address the issues. The event is studded with live presentations and performances by those who best represent the best of an ancient cultural heritage that now stands on the gateway of extinction.
The Indian tribals despite their poverty and poor living conditions and some of them on the throes of extinction have something extraordinarily original and unique to offer to the rest of the world. There is no denying that their art and culture, which have involved through centuries, bear the stamp of their ideas and thoughts best expressed in their community songs and various dance forms.
In the wake of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s clarion call for “SWACHH BHARAT”, it is proposed to use our platform to spread awareness among the participants and visitors about the importance of cleanliness. The motto is to extend our hands in the accomplishment of Modi’s vision of “CLEAN INDIA” by 2nd October 2019 i.e. the 150th birth of Shri Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation. The rich and the poor among the people whether they belong to cities, towns, villages or country sides will be asked to undertake as many works to stop the activities that would be detrimental to the process of sanitation and public health.
