Vhah Fest 2020

Note From The Convener

Greetings and welcome to Vedaaranya Heritage and Healing Festival (VHAH FEST) at Ramgarh Fort, Ramgarh Shekhawati, Rajasthan!

The festival is an integral part of the dream to revive this unique and spectacular region of India which had been abandoned by some of the richest Seths (merchants) of India almost a century ago, throwing its economic and social order into chaos and disintegration.

Today history beckons again as we rediscover the charm, the uniqueness of the painted walls of Ramgarh Shekhawati and the great culture and intangible heritage of this unique town that was once a great Centre of learning and was therefore called Doosra Kashi.

VHAH FEST 2020 brings together great artists, thinkers, mentors, healers, designers, entrepreneurs and institutional heads from India and abroad to Celebrate, Learn and Create at the festival, and explore the uniqueness of this great town along with the local community, particularly its women and youth.

Join us at VHAH FEST 2020 in reimagining this great historical region of Shekhawati as possibly, the most holistic and exciting Habitat of the Future!
