Art is collaboration between god and the artist and yet sometimes it requires mortal men to act as intermediaries and bring the works of art close to the people - to see, to love and to inspire. That was a dream behind legends of India - to present art forms, to help people understand and appreciate the rich cultural heritage of India. A journey of a thousand miles.
Dipayan Mazumdar took the momentous and conscious decision to do his bit to help initiate a gradual change in people's mindset by promoting India's rich traditional art forms. He knew something was to be done about it. He conceptualized and put together... Legends of India.
Legends of India is now a registered society under 'Societies Registration act XXI, of 1860's with a mandate to not only organize annual festivals and other events but also undertake research and document for posterity the origins and subtle nuances and changes that the Indian art forms have undergone through centuries. From organizing live performances of renowned artists, to providing a forum for the younger talent, Legend of India is a unique institution bringing together having legends and those in the making.
Legends of India was invited by Government of India to conceptualize and present a week long festival on the occasion of 53rd Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Conference (CPA) and The 20th Conference of Speakers and Presiding Officers of the Commonwealth at New Delhi. This was a rare honor given ever to any organization.
