Rajasthan Forum sets its agenda

At the Rajasthan Forum meeting
November 26, 2013: A very important meeting of Rajasthan Forum was held today to chart out a calendar of important activities and events for the next year. The meeting was preceded by a lunch which was attended by the Forum members.
Rajasthan Forum, which is an important representative body of illustrious artistes, culturists and achievers, is at the forefront of organizing many sterling cultural signature events like Desert Storm and Desert Souls across Rajasthan mainly in Jaipur.
With the members of Rajasthan Forum
Special invitees Padmashri S Shakir Ali and art promoter Sangeeta Juneja were nominated and inducted as committee members of Rajasthan Forum. The Forum's meeting was spearheaded by Grammy Award Winner Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt who shortlisted names for the forthcoming series of Desert Storm and Desert Souls. He also announced that the Forum would pay tributes to honour distinguished personalities from the art and cultural spheres who made rich contributions to their respective fields in the state during their lifetime.
It was decided that Rajasthan Forum, in remembrance of the state’s demised artistes, would start off a programme called “Shraddha” to pay rich tributes to these great personalities. In this programme, the family members of the artistes would be invited and felicitated. In addition, another programme called “Pranaam” would be started to honour the veteran artistes of Rajasthan who are above 75 years. Rajasthan Forum members would visit the house of the artiste and felicitate them with a tamrpatra, angvastram etc., as mark of reverence to their contribution.
The achievements of Rajasthan Forum since April 2013 (last meeting of the Forum) till date were highlighted at the meeting. There were nine major events organized in the state including Rajasthan Forum members' meeting with Hon'ble President of India and collaborations at the Jaipur Art Summit and Jaipur Tab Aur Ab session etc.

For the Desert Storm, the Forum decided to invited kathak Dancer Pt Rajendra Gangani and Sudha Shivpuri.
