Tribute to Bharath - 2023

Updated: Jan 31

“Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.” – Ida Scott Taylor

In 2023, a remarkable annual initiative, Tribute to Bharath, once again illuminated the incredible diversity of Indian states. Spearheaded by Oviya, a passionate member of the VT Seva Youth Board in Detroit, this project was a journey into the heart of India, celebrating its unique states, cultures, and traditions.

The Tribute to Bharath project was an innovative departure from the norm. Instead of delving into the pages of history, it focused on the vibrant present of India. Youth from Maryland and Detroit united to embark on this enlightening journey.

A dedicated team of 28 Detroit youth board members and 19 Maryland Youth board members came together to research and create informational posters for each day of the month. These posters were windows into India's diverse states' cultural, historical, and geographical aspects.

This project aimed to foster a deep connection with India's rich cultural roots. These posters were not mere information sheets; they were bridges connecting viewers to the fascinating tapestry of India. They showcased languages, traditions, and unique aspects that make each state a treasure trove of culture.

One of the most significant achievements of this project was highlighting the unity in diversity that defines India. Each state has its own distinct identity, yet together, they form India's vibrant mosaic. This project emphasized the importance of cherishing this diversity and celebrating it as one of India's greatest strengths.
