MOST CHERISHED MEMORIES OF DELEGATES OF KABIRA
The ethos of the Mahindra Group centres around effecting a positive change in the lives of the people and communities we engage with through our businesses and initiatives. In addition to this, respect for the dignity of the individual is one of our most important core values. The Mahindra Kabira Festival helps us further these ideas and reinforces our commitment to the arts. The first three editions of the Festival have met with great appreciation and praise, and we are delighted to continue presenting this festival in its fourth year with a very exciting programme.
Loved listening to the melodious singing, watching the ganges flow by at 6:30 am in the morning
The river and the heritage walk, The Mornings by the Ganges, listening to Kabir while Benares goes about its daily activites - Loved it!
The 'Kabira' songs, the warm vibrant people, the river ganges, The event in this setting and the wonderful hospitality. I also liked walking along the ghats- but how can I forget the 'climbs' everyday. These have also made us fitter. A private dip in the 'sacred ganges' for ladies should be organised
The exposure to Banaras as a city - I learned that you can be happy amidst the chaos & confusion!
Music early morning! It was pure bliss!! Aartis- People are simply amazing and the volunteers superb.
