‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ a big hit among youths


Indore: Bringing back Indian culture and its amazing memories, Deepak Sharma organised ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ in Prestige Institute of Management and Research on Saturday.

Talking about the concept, Sharma said, “Most youngsters are unaware of beauty of our villages and traditional art.” In order to bring the adventures of simple village lifestyle to the youth, the event was organised with traditional dances, ethnic jewellery, magic shows, henna tattoos, interesting food items and traditional cookware. Sharing his experience of the event, Dr Tarun Khushwaha said, “I feel nostalgic, missing the simple village life.” He felt delighted as he could savour the flavours of village and chat with friends in person and not on Whatsapp.

Discussing the theme, Prof Prayatna Jain said, “I feel simplicity is the way to stay happy, as a person does not have too much baggage.” He reminded the time when people talked with their friends and cleared their consciousness before sleeping. “I wish I could give this simple life to my son Mitansh and show him the beauty of Indian tradition and culture,” he added.
