Lohri is an extremely popular festival of Punjab which is celebrated in the middle of January. The whole of Punjab comes alive on the day and there is a feeling of jubilation all around. Even the nature wears its best clothes at this time as the fields promise of a golden harvest. Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India (SCFI) seeks to explore the spirit of this harvest festival as witnessed in Punjab and North India by exploring virtually all aspects related to it.
As a socially responsible manifestation, Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India endeavors to create value for the Indian society by introducing the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied in the various festivals of India, thereby preserving India's rich cultural heritage. We bring unique customs, traditions and goodness of Indian festivals to form a distinct association known as the Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India. Through this organization, we hope to form a mutual respect for and foster the common bond that various Indian festivals share.
The great diversity of Indian religious beliefs is projected through the various festivals that are celebrated in India. They arise from the innate desire of man to seek diversion from humdrum activities that help in symbolizing, reflecting and enriching social life in a specific cultural setting. SCFI seeks to conserve and promote an awareness of this rich and diversified cultural treasure amongst the citizen of this country through various expositions that focus on the tradition of excellence, conversing the famous legends, rituals, mythology and philosophy of Indian Festivals and in turn facilitating an awareness of their deeper and subtler values.
