About Us

FACES is a non-governmental organisation working for Education, Conservation and Propagation of Art, Indian Culture, Tangible & Intangible Heritages, Ethical Values and Indian Tradition of Scientific Knowledge. This is a 'not for profit' organization.

A nation/civilization is identified and defined by its culture, heritage, traditions and values. Ours’ is the oldest civilization on the earth existing from the time immemorial without much change despite the numerous upheavals, aggressions and catastrophes. This is why Indian culture is called as “Sanātan Sanskriti” or Sanātana Dharma (the eternal religion and culture).
Right from the beginning, the Indian Tradition of Scientific & Spiritual Knowledge, the system of Holistic Education and Artistic/Aesthetic Values of India has been influencing the world. Indians had mastered in physical and medical sciences, astronomy, mathematics, yoga etc. much earlier than any other civilization in the world.
A number of theories, concepts and ideas we think today as contribution of the West, they are in fact of Indian origin and were adopted by several other civilizations in the past, but could not continue further in India due to the long reigns of aggressors lasting for approximately two millennia (right from dawn of the Christian era to the twentieth century).
We, the people of India, are the proud heir of this amazing, rich, multi-dimensional and all-inclusive culture which stands tallest among the cultural units of the world; therefore it is expected from us to know it very well and act accordingly. If we wish to scale the sky, we must spread our roots deep in to our own soil. The seeds of our progress will grow on our own land, not in the winds from east and west.
This is why, FACES has determined its objective to make our young generation well acquainted with the charismatic aura of Indian Culture and Tradition which have been neglected in the name of modernism and globalization for a long time and as a result it is going out of the memory of our new generation.

एक राष्ट्र की पहचान उसकी संस्कृति, सांस्कृतिक विरासत, परंपराओं और नैतिक मूल्यों से होती है। हमारी संस्कृति और सभ्यता धरती की प्राचीनतम संस्कृति है, जो अनादि काल से अब तक अनगिनत आक्रमणों, उथल-पुथल और विनाश-लीलाओं के पश्चात भी अत्यल्प परिवर्तनों के साथ सतत है। यही कारण है कि हमारी संस्कृति को “सनातन संस्कृति या सनातन धर्म की संज्ञा दी जाती है, अर्थात अनादी काल से चला आ रहा धर्म। वैज्ञानिक और आध्यात्मिक ज्ञान की परंपरा (भौतिक विज्ञान, चिकित्सा विज्ञान, खगोल विज्ञान, ज्योतिष, गणित, योग-साधना आदि); और प्राचीन भारत की समग्र शिक्षा की प्रणाली स्पष्ट रूप से दुनिया को प्रभावित और प्रेरित करती रही है।
हम, भारत के लोग, इस अद्भुत, समृद्ध, बहुआयामी और सर्व-समावेशी संस्कृति के गौरवशाली उत्तराधिकारी हैं, जो दुनिया की सांस्कृतिक इकाइयों में सबसे श्रेष्ठ है। इसलिए हमसे अपेक्षा की जाती है कि हमें अपनी संस्कृति, ज्ञान- परंपरा और विरासत का समुचित ज्ञान हो - और तदनुसार हमारा आचरण भी हो। अगर हमें आकाश को नापना है तो हमें अपनी जड़ों को अपनी ही मिट्टी में फैलाना होगा। हमारी प्रगति के बीज हमारी अपनी भूमि पर विकसित होंगे, पश्चिम से आने वाली हवाओं में नहीं।
उपरोक्त तथ्यों के आलोक में FACES ने अपना जो उद्देश्य निर्धारित किया है वह है - भारतीय संस्कृति और परंपरा की करिश्माई आभा को सामने लाना, जिस पर पिछली कुछ शताब्दियों के दौरान आवरण डाल दिया गया है, और कुछ दशकों से हमारी नई पीढ़ी की स्मृति से बाहर होता जा रहा है।

How much we love and respect our cultural heritages and traditions, indicates how civilised we are!
हम कितने सभ्य हैं यह इस बात से पता चलता है कि हम अपने सांस्कृतिक विरासतों और परंपराओं को कितना प्यार और सम्मान देते हैं!
