Sampoojya Swamiji Poornamritananda Puri, General Secretary of Mata Amritanandamayi Math, released the latest issue of Samvit, a quarterly student journal of Amritapuri Campus, presented by Dr. Sankaran, Registrar of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in presence of Chancellor Amma at Amritavarsham 62 on September 27, 2015.
Here’s some highlights from the issue.
Samvit this time lights up the different faces of the socio-cultural life in India. “A nation without a cultural heritage is like an orphan who has nothing to feed upon” said Emerson once. If we go upon this idea, then India would be a child born with a silver spoon in its mouth and a huge family to support her.
The insight into Bharatanatyam and Kondapalli Bommalu shows that artistic talent in deep-rooted in the culture from our past. Our creativity to mirror life through art forms has always been a subject for inspiration. The article on Terracotta Temples of Bishnupur proves that these imposing structures are indeed a sight to behold and is a proof of the splendour and aura of the Malla rulers. From zero to infinity India’s contribution in mathematics is magical and you can find one such magic in the article “Magic Square”. Then we have Nahusha’s story with an influential moral that humility is the most important quality to imbibe.
Even though we have deep roots in our culture and heritage, it is important to nurture them with proper nourishment. When we cross on to present day India, we find alarming issues like the neglected souls of the poor farmers who are withering day by day, and also the poor quality of the current education. But the articles like “Project Mausam” and “Swachha Bharath” show that there is indeed a silver lining behind the clouds, and that, we can soon feel the bliss of beaming rays. Let this edition illuminate and inspire you to be that positive change towards a better India.
