Panchtatva: Celebrating Nature’s harmony

18 February 2015

“A wonderful evening of spectacular music was in store for the Delhi crowd as Panchtatva celebrated the last of its five all-India concerts which started in Mumbai, and then went to Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and now Delhi,” said Kiran Mehra-Kerpelman, UNIC Director. “They carried off an absolutely magical evening depicting the five elements of nature, taking the understanding of climate change and the effects of human impact on the environment”, she noted. The five elements are: “Aakash (Space), Vaayu (Wind), Agni (Fire), Jal (Water) and Prithvi (Earth)”.  

Conceived by Durga Jasraj, together with Neeraj Jaitley, Panchtatva is an immersive experience through a spectacular combination of specially designed Animation and Visual Effects along with Soundscapes, and the use of Shlokas from the Vedas (scriptures). “Panchtatava is a musical extension of our dynamic Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji’s call for action for Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan” said Durga Jasraj. “We firmly believe that each one of us can contribute in our unique way and hence we decided to roll out a Concert tour to spread awareness through entertainment, which will leave a lasting impression on people’s minds”. The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India, Aditya Birla Group, and the United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC) supported this endeavour.

This was really is a unique presentation wherein Musical Superstars -- Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Ustad Rashid Khan, Selva Ganesh, Taufiq Qureshi, Rattan Mohan Sharma, Ankita Joshi, Sridhar Parthasarathy, Ramkumar Mishra, Subhankar Banerjee and Durga Jasraj, performed together and the public just kept asking for more.
