Jagat Pāvanī, the sanctifier of the Universe is a stage presentation of the glory of Ganga interpreted with ancient and contemporary verses which extol the need to preserve Her purity and sanctity. It combines Bharathanatyam, Classical Carnatic music, Garhwali music and dance, Shadow Play and Theatre to depict the incomparable splendor of the HIMALAYAN GANGA. The saga of the sacred Ganga is unfolded through an artistically interwoven ensemble of corps de ballet with an intent to culminate in a philosophical introspection of the ecological value systems that is gripping the society.
