“Avartan” is a public charitable trust with support and contribution from highly respected artistes in India. With Pune as the fulcrum, Avartan has set up a “Gurukul” with the aim of making inspired artistes and Gurus for the future generations in a sustainable manner. The method is to select highly talented students irrespective of religion, caste, and economic background. While inspiration has been derived from many Gurukuls currently doing important work, Avartan is going a step ahead in making this Gurukul have a holistic approach encompassing all the major facets of Indian art forms such as Vocal music, Instrumental music, and Dance.
People involved with AvartanGurukul have done extensive research on the traditional Gurukul systems in India and worked out a plan which is most workable and relevant to current times, keeping all the major facets of the tradition intact. While technology is bringing world closer and closer and giving rise to the terms such as “World Music” and “World Culture”, Avartan is determined to take every effort to preserve a separate space for Indian culture amidst a cultural onslaught.
Education at Avartan Gurukul is completely free of charge.
