“India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most constructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only!” ― Mark Twain. There was a time when the Vedic forms of art were confined in the land of India with a sense of possessive pride! However, centuries and centuries later, these prided moments have been arrayed into emotions. With a major chunk of Indians migrating worldwide, times have changed in terms of recognizing Indian art forms too! Our contemporary moment of pride is when we see that our traditional art forms are being recognized in the western world!
