'आकार'.... साहित्य संगीतादी कलांची रुजवण!!

'Aakar' is the organisation for children incorporating Marathi literature, Music and related arts.

Myself Chitra Deshpande and Sukhda Khandkekar, are the founder members of 'Aakar'. Since last 5 years this organization has been successfully training children for the various cultural programmes. In 'Aakar' all activities, like singing, playing instruments and comparing are done by children themselves only. 'Aakar 'has been formed with an aim to foster talent in every child with regards to language, culture and music. The highlight of our institute is, गायन, वादन, निवेदन सारे काही मुलांचेच. This is a step in assisting your child in exploring inborn and induced talent, with music as the form of expression.

In these five years children of 'Aakar' presented stage shows based on various culturals topics in India such as Maharashtra, Andaman (union territory of India), as well as in other countries like Bangkok ( i.e.Thailand), and Dubai. The performances were very well received and appreciated by the experts.

I would like to mention some of our performances like,
*'Swatantrate Bhagwati' based on swatantraveer Sawarkar's lyrics,
*'Baal Geet Ramayana' - selected lyrics from world famous 'Geetramayan' by the great poet Ga.Di. Madgulkar.
* 'Abhanga-Rang' based on abhangas written by various Sants in this holy land of Maharashtra.
* 'Surotsav !!',a Marathi cultural programme based Marathi months and Marathi festivals.

Every time, 'Aakar' is performing on the topics related to Marathi culture, Marathi literature with the help of music and contributing to incorporate our culture, our values leading to develop various skills and personality for the children.
