“Grandparents make the world a little softer, a little kinder, and a little warmer. — Unknown
ABOUT SAMARPANAM 2020
Grandparents are an integral part of a family. Not only do they provide their unconditional love for the grandchildren, they also inculcate values and culture in the little ones. They are also a storehouse of information. They generally like to spend time with their grandkids, see them often, talk to them, play with them and pamper them. But most importantly, they are the ones who always show their support and encourage us to do our best at all times.
However, with the current COVID situation, the grandparents have been tremendously affected by the quarantine measures and have not been able to meet their grandkids in person, because of the risks involved.
SAMARPANAM – GRATITUDE TO GRANDPARENTS
It is our humble attempt to bring a smile, some cheer, some joy and some happiness to the lives of all the Grandparents out there.
The whole idea of Samarpanam is to be thankful to our grandparents for encouraging to follow our hearts and talents. Let us offer our Samarpanam to the infinite ways in which they have consciously or otherwise inspired or shaped us. We invite you to join us in sharing this unique journey of offering Gratitude to all the Grandparents out there. As part of Samarpanam 2020, Bhogya.Online is delighted to be bringing performances of various professional and semi-professional artists across Europe, starting from the 16th of October 2020. Like the art forms, each grandparent’s way of loving their grandchildren is different. Just as varied as the Grandparents’ Love, is Bhogya’s Artists’ Samarpanam. From our rich tradition of 64 Art forms, we are happy to be showing up to 14 different art forms. (see list below)
The Artists would inspire the people not just with their art, but through their words of Gratitude, which would go a long way to ENGAGE, ENRICH & ELEVATE people, societies and communities making it more lovable and sustainable.
