Mahindra Kabira 2022 opens its arms to its guests, alongside the banks of a timeless river, in the city that is sentinel to its history, we look forward towards the wisdom of the 15th-century mystic & poet – Kabir – with music, literature and discourse.
Dates of the festival to be held between 18th – 20th November 2022. The programme will include a plethora of classical and folk music, talks, live art demonstrations. The characteristic Kabira boat rides, a delectable local food journey and the quintessential Ganga Arati experience. Forays into the city will be avoided but the joys and sights of the city to our delegates would be as eventful as we planned. We look forward to a cautious but a wiser and steadfast Mahindra Kabira!

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.
