It's the need of our generatoin!!!!!! The Festival of a 21st Century
BRF- is the festival of a 21st Century, festival of our time- our Generation, which promotes and addresses Conservation, Culture and helps to unite all Communities. It’s a festival of all religions, people of all ages and gender, poor and rich. It encourages all to unite and live in harmony. It’s a movement through environmentally, socially, culturally and religiously, i.e. plantation, clean ups, environmental workshops, seminars, water sports, art, music, literatures and also addresses the present crises of the planet climate change and global warming, a massive awareness campaign. A more relevant festival of our time with different rituals in order to help revive the Bagamti civilization for our future generations.
BRF provides the platform for the organizations to display their good work on conservation of the Bagmati and its tributaries so there will be more cooperation and build confidence and trust between communities and organizations instead of just blame shifting. It is also a platform for people from all walks of life can show their concerns, a platform to raise the public voice against those organizations milking on the name of Bagamti, a watch dog to protect the public interest.
The festival to bring people close to the river to have a conversation with the river and understand the problem. When we understand it, we care about it, then we love it, then only possible to conserve it.
