AMRAPALI (Society for ARTS), a socio-cultural organization, recently held the 3rd Culture Colloquium 2017 in collaboration with the Department of Anthropology, North Guwahati College, North Guwahati. The media partner was Amrapali Rendition Magazine. The event was inaugurated by Dr Dilip Das, Principal, North Guwahati College in the presence of Pranaame Bhagawati, Founder of Amrapali, Tikendrajit Sarma, Education Consultant, Amrapali along with teachers, staff and students.
The main motive was to spread the message, amidst the youth, that goodwill towards any dream or initiative that is beneficial to society will always lead to success.
The event started with a Bharatnatyam recital presenting a Pushpanjali by Pubali Gupta and Bandana Barman, performing artistes at the Amrapali Repertory (Guwahati) and a group dance in creative style by the Rodali Dance Academy (North Guwahati). The guest speaker was Ratna Das, Chief of Aaideo Talkies which is an initiative to promote and propagate Assamese cinema in rural areas.
Pranaame Bhagawati shares, ‘Many teenagers are stressed and disappointed with the hurdles they face in life, but when they come across wonderful messages and stories of initiatives like Aaideo Talkies, they gradually realize their hidden strengths and become positive that they can lead a better life.’
Towards the end of the colloquium, the audiences interacted with Ratna Das asking him about the pros and cons as well as possibilities of promoting Assamese cinema. ‘I’m overwhelmed with the responses I received at the Culture Colloquium and I’m amazed to see the love and support for Aaideo Talkies,’ said the guest speaker.
