About Us

Children and young adults from a wide range of backgrounds have the opportunity to build networks drawn from common experiences at the Sanskriti Institute. Sanskriti's outward looking and holistic approach will provide the basis for students to develop lasting ties and mutual understanding in a cross cultural community. The emphasis on cultural assimilation is intended to create a blend of cultures so that children do not question their identities and can move forward confidently with a global outlook.

Sanskriti has been offering classes and workshops for children since it's inception in September 2004. The core values of the institute - excellence and integration - will be a fundamental component of the instruction offered by our accomplished faculty. At every stage, students will be pushed forward to reach new levels, building both self-confidence and a strong motivation to achieve their maximum potential. While students receive focused training in one or more art forms of their choice, they also develop an understanding of the context within which it has developed through history.

When Northern Europeans were still dressed in birch bark, and furs and wandering about drinking beer out of a deer horn, India had evolved the exquisite aesthetics of the Natyasastra, Kavra and the Rasa theories of aesthetic moods, in the most sophisticated manner-probably even ahead of where the pursuit of happiness has reached today. The Indo-Tibetan universe uniquely achieved the unification of the exquisite, the ecstatic, and the mystic- the erotic and the spiritual- and its study and performance has a great deal to offer in the elevation of our culture. Thank you all for your generosity toward the myriad of wonderful programs of the Sanskriti Institute.

LORD MACAULAY'S ADDRESS TO THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT 2 FEBRUARY, 1835

"I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation."
