What is Maahi Roj?
Maahi Roj – literally translating into Earth Day Every Day, by AnanTaya is a contemporary craft festival celebrating our integral relationship with the Earth. The Festival is an ongoing voyage of discovering the Planet’s Potential for viability, in collaboration with like-minded thinkers. Maahi Roj brings together people who provide an alternative vision of how we can live in a conscious sustainable way, through awareness of our self, lifestyle, and its’ material culture.
Theme for 2021
2020 gave us the time to look back and introspect. Our physical worlds have shrunk and inner worlds have expanded. As we have come to terms with our immediate environments - our homes, our personal spaces, our immediate neighbors, we discover more about ourselves. We have a newfound appreciation of our innate skills and those of others that we took for granted.
The striking reality of limited space is an opportunity. How do we make the most of NOW without challenging possibilities of our shared future?
For the 7 th edition of Maahi Roj, in 2021 with the theme HERE and NOW, we aspire to explore conscious and mindful living with Maahi Roj Lite.
The way we experience life boils down to the immediate moment, here, and now, and within this moment, let us build our universe.
