Culture plays an important role in the development of any nation. It represents a set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices. Culture and creativity manifest themselves in almost all economic, social and other activities. A country as diverse as India is symbolized by the plurality of its culture. India has one of the world’s largest collections of songs, music, dance, theatre, folk traditions, performing arts, rites and rituals, paintings and writings that are known, as the ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage’ of humanity. In order to preserve these elements locally here in Buffalo we have founded this not for profit organization –CHAI- Council of Heritage and Arts of India, Inc. The practice of “anna dana” (offering of food) is common to all sections of Indian society and continues to be an important aspect of people’s way of life. Here through this organization we would be doing a lot of charity work as well. READ MORE
