Rangeelu Gujarat, an extravagant interactive culture exhibition which was held in London to showcase the best parts of the Glorious State Gujarat. The aim of the event was to allow the British public to strengthen the existing relationship with Gujarat through understanding its cultural identity. Ranging from young people to elderly folk the event attracted around 30,000 visitors.
People from all over the UK attended. Furthermore, there has been a new interest where people have been requesting for the event to be held all over the UK which proves that Rangeelu Gujarat, just in its first year has been extremely successful. Activities included pagri tying, mediation, raas garba, kite flying, arts and much more, where people were able to actually interact and take part in the diverse range of traditional Gujarat Culture.
“It’s been a rollercoaster, trying to break the stereotype of a ‘Gujarati event’ it was an absolute honour welcoming the youth to Rangeelu Gujarat,” says Mira Salat – Director of Red Lotus Events. “There was a platform for people to learn of their Gujarati culture without any caste, community or religious barriers. The amount of support we recieved from the audience was immeasurable. Through the wind and rain the masses held tight to their umbrellas eager to see the next performance! From kids to adults alike there was something for everyone. And all went home with a smile on their faces. We’ve truly started a movement which creates pride in ones’ heart of being Gujarati”.
Pritee Varsani – Director of Red Lotus Events further adds, “Absolutely amazing. Great vibe, great atmosphere. Lovely to get the support of the public with their presence. Rangeelu Gujarat is a movement for us and we need to make sure we hold the culture here in the UK”.
Commenting on the partnership, Cllr Muhammed Butt – leader of Brent said: “As leader of Brent council I am extremely proud that we managed to bring the diverse culture of the Gujarat region and showcased the many artistic talents of the people. This cultural event was organised by Red Lotus events led by Pritee and Mira just shows what we can do when we come together for the benefit of our communities to build bridges of unity and harmony. I would like to see more of these events from all our communities and Red Lotus will be able to assist to make sure that the success of Rangeelu Gujarat will benefit all our communities”.
