Gunijan Sabha brings alive an ancient Indian tradition to organize enriching interactions with people having extraordinary skills.It is a practice of spending time and learning from people who have achieved excellence in their work.


In ancient and medieval periods, Gunijan Sabha was a popular self-enriching sessions where pupils learnt from masters. It was a platform to encourage and patronize various forms of art. 


Sessions are organized in smaller group where Gunijan (artist) displays and teaches intricacies of their art . Such Sabhas are usually intense and rich in experience.
