Just when you think the worst might be getting over, an even uglier face of humanity thrusts itself out. Insane, intense hatred, mindless destruction, far reaching negative impact on the Planet Earth. Where are we headed? The voice of sanity seems to be getting buried even deeper with each passing day. The need for Soul searching was never felt so desperately and so urgently.
The answers are within us, around us, only if we looked sincerely, said the wise ones.
To help connect with the wisdom of the wise, realized masters from around the world, Ruhaniyat is back for the 23rd consecutive year!
Once again, thanks to the national presenting partners TCS, the festival will be presented in all the 8 cities i.e. Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Pune. There are several never seen before artists and forms both from across India and other countries.
