Program Description:

Saint Namdev (1270 AD) made devotional compositions on Lord Vishnu. His creations are also included in the Guru Granth Sahib, the bible for the Sikh. Saint Namdev has a big following in Maharshtra state of which Mumbai is the capital.

Hundreds of members of the community of traditional weavers and block-printers from all over India arrive in Haridwar during the 1st week of November, the occasion of the birth day of Saint Namdev. The traditional block-printing, as a profession, has got extinguished about a decade ago. Now it is considered largely a work of art. Associated art forms of cloth making by handlooms and stitching are also available in Haridwar.

The relaxed month of November presents an additional good opportunity to creative - writers. A fresh cool nip in the air mixes well with the gentle river sound for sun-bathing and writing creatively.

“Half-risen then she sent her gaze around,
As if to recover old sweet trivial threads,
Old happy thoughts, small treasured memories,
And weave them into one immortal day.”
