Legends of India to lead CSR sensitization campaign

As you are all aware that the government of India has notified the rules for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) spending under the new companies law, putting in place the much –debated plan aimed at encouraging companies to spend a portion of their profits on projects that benefits society.

This notification will be in place w.e.f April 1 2014. (Hope it will not be April fool’s day for us). Working towards protection of national heritage, art & culture is one of the areas of the formal frame work for social spending by corporate. Companies with net worth of over Rs 500 Cr or net profit of over Rs 5 Cr including foreign companies registered in India fall under this notification.

We have all seen in the past that art & culture, for reasons unknown, has been most neglected. It is time to begin a nationwide consolidated campaign sensitizing the corporate to see the need for promoting and protecting our cultural heritage and Indian art forms.

I request you all to come forward and share your ideas, joining hands with “Legends of India” to begin this campaign with immediate effect.

Other initiatives: Legends of India has been supporting Corporate and MNC's in India to package and present Musical Concerts to enhance their brand equity.
"By presenting 'Legends of India', we are trying to preserve the traditions of Indian Cultural Heritage for the younger generation as I strongly believe that it will help them become better human beings. And this dream can be realized only through financial support from Corporate and Funding Organizations across the world.”…

SANGEET THEATRE FINE ARTS
Over the decade, Legends of India has organized more than 25 festivals across the country and presented over 150 artistes, who include 'Legends' of Indian Classical Music/Dance besides those who are 'Legends in the making'. In the process, Legends of India has taken on a life of its own and gained momentum that pushes us forward to more and more ambitious projects.
We took upon ourselves an ambitious project of holding Theatre Festivals. Corporate considered English Theater the only medium of image and hype. We deliberately decided to incorporate regional theatre because they lack support and patronage in the real sense in spite of its rich culture, heritage and entertainment value.
Most of the finest painters and sculptures like Arpana Caur, Jatin Das, Dhiraj Chowdhury, Prof. Biman B Das, Jogen Choudhury, Somnath Banerjee, Kota Neelima, Sunil Das, Suhas Roy, Sonia Rodrigues have participated in making Legends of India Fine Arts Festival - Canvas, one of the glorious events and a connoisseur's delight.

I am delighted to be associated with the concert being organized by the Legends of India. These people who are doing it as their passion and not as their profession do a much better job.
