The famous 19th century poet and essayist Mathew Arnold used the word culture to refer to being a pursuit of total perfection. Culture then acquires the goal towards excellence of taste in fine arts and humanities. A process of cultivation of the soul or mind, as the cultivation of inward-ness or free individuality, It, in what we come to think, should achieve full expression of the unique authentic self and in providing that allow for the flowering of the self in the process of self discovery that it ideally should unfurl.
Rasa Foundation too, as the name effectively suggests, in promoting the rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry through its celebration of the literary, the poetic, the artistic, the musical, and the dramatic and melodramatic is facilitating awareness of the deeper and the subtler within us. It achieves its goal of offering a platform between the art lovers and the artists through the following:
Organizing camps for the eminent, upcoming and the amateur artists.
Exhibiting the works internationally.
Organizing programs in schools and colleges, for encouraging informal interaction between students and artists helping to create future audiences, rather lovers of art.
In its first attempt towards the accomplishment of its goals, Rasa recently organized a camp aptly titled 'Aarambh' bringing together a group of very acclaimed artists like Jyoti Bhatt, Lakshma Gaud, Gopi Gajwani, Shobha Broota, Manish Pushkale, Babu Ishwar Prasad....to name only a few, in the picturesque Sattal. A quaint little hamlet, cradled in the Himalayas, bathed in heavenly silence, while capable of lending some of its calmness to ease the anxious nerves; it definitely fired the imaginations of the artists there.
The objective of the camp having been an attempt to extend a lending hand to the other arts which with the passage of time are falling into oblivion, the first of this kind, the camp was a brilliant success. The exhibition will now be traveling
