  1. Gaudiya Nritya
    November 23, 2013

    A classical dance form…originated in ancient Bengal…lost in the sands of time…now revived after over three decades of painstaking research and dedication by Guru Sreemati Dr. Mahua Mukherjee…

    We at Gadurr Media take great pleasure in announcing our first social responsibility initiative- the promotion of Gaudiya Nritya.

    India is blessed with tradition and culture that is unparalleled. It is unfortunate that in todays day and time, the awareness of our heritage is on the wane. Before we embarked on this project, we spoke to many people across India, and found were saddened to note that most of them had not even heard of Gaudiya Nritya. Even more surprising was the low level of awareness in the land of its origin- Bengal. Thats when we decided to take this up. We devised a comprehensive strategy to increase the level of awareness of this art, and eight months later, here we are.

    Please visit our website at http://www.gaudiyanritya.org to learn more about this dance form, its history, its struggle, and the hard work that our team is putting in to bring it forward to the world.

    We have come far, yet have miles to go. And now is when we need your support. We are in the process of making a promotional video to showcase Gaudiya Nritya, to be telecast on regional and national channels in India. We are confident that the level of awareness of this art with greatly increase with the airing of this video, and the world at large will come to learn of our struggle. We need your encouragement…your feedback, your contribution.

    The complete details of our project are available at http://www.gaudiyanritya.org/an-appeal.

    We are very excited about the possibilities that this dance form holds, not only from a traditional perspective, but also from an entertainment perspective. We are sure that audiences will appreciate this art form, and hence our push in making art lovers more aware of this dance.

    Here is where patrons such as yourselves can help us in our mission.

We are looking at collecting US$ 15,000 to make the promotional video for Gaudiya Nritya, which will then be aired on regional and national channels and go a long way in spreading the awareness of this art. Our Indiegogo page has the details, please spread the word and help us by contributing to this initiative as well!

    Lets take pride in our tradition, our culture. It is ours to cherish and nurture…
