India is a country of old civilization and great heritage. It had a great history in past and there are a lot of things starting from the Mathematics, Astronomy, Astrology, Geometry, Ayurveda, Yoga, Kamasutra, Vedas and many more. Indian civilization has contributed a lot to the world. It is the birth place of more than 200 languages including worlds two oldest languages, Sanskrit and Tamil and six major religions ( Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Shaivism, Shaktism ). The country is full of diversion and tolerance and it sets a living example for the whole world how to live in unity and peace with keeping everyone happy. The society of India is a lot to give to the world in today’s world. It never had attacked any country irrespective of attacked by many. But with the invasion of India from last 1000 years, most of its old culture has been diluted and the world do not know and do not understand India and its cultural depth in totality. With time India as a civilization came up ages and became more matured and inclusive as well as diverse.

                As we know the world now is heading towards chaos because of intolerance and extremism as well as without having proper understanding of value and goal of life; it needs the Spiritual and tolerance mind-set. It need to understand the true meaning of life which can gives the solution to the today’s generation for a better future.

                To contribute to the solution of the problem, we have developed the concept of the project with the belief that culture is an important socializing factor that gives citizens a sense of pride and belonging to their country and community and to the citizens of other countries it gives the understanding of values of other cultures and values of the global cultural process. The main objectives of the KIAR Residency will be communication between Indian and International artists and cultural activists, exchange of values and cultures through the means of arts, the presentation of India’s rich and diverse heritage, the philosophy of ‘BASUDEVA KUTUMBAKAM’ (WORLD IS ONE FAMILY).In a long term, we count on to have such projects in other countries as tools for breaking down stereotypes that World have about India and vice versa.

USINDIA CULTURAL Exchange

US-India relations have perhaps never been so good. The multi-dimensional & multi-layered relations between India and the US have been transformed beyond recognition in the last two decades. Sheer magnitude of interaction and exchanges, their frequency, level and nature has been unprecedented. While the signing of the Civil Nuclear Agreement was, indeed, a significant milestone, our bilateral relations can’t and must not rest on this issue alone.

Between the two functioning democracies, there will always be some issues on which they don’t see eye to eye; they rather agree to disagree. While pursuing our respective national interests, we can always find a host of issues to co-operate, collaborate and co-ordinate for our mutual benefit. The same is true about US-India relations.

While the Govts, corporate sectors and other official agencies address issues and matters which fall in their domain, there is huge area in which the opinion makers in the oldest and the largest democracies can network, interface, interact, discuss, debate, brainstorm, co-operate, collaborate with each other to expand, deepen and strengthen each other’s understanding and appreciation and generate goodwill and friendship between the peoples of the two countries. This is the arena in which US-INDIA Cultural Exchange Program, KIAR can play a constructive role as a catalyst to build bridges of friendship, understanding and appreciation using art diplomacy, cultural diplomacy and understand each others culture, society and ideas which exist in the two countries.
