What do we do

The major objective of Kalamandir is to promote the Nepalese language, art and culture. Within the span of these three decades, Kalamandir has made great progress and reputation in Delhi and as well as outside Delhi. Within the Nepalese organisations in the capital Kalamandir has been praised for its best cultural performances, which you can judge for yourself in our programmes.

In order to spread the awareness of Nepali as a language and as a culture Kalamandir organizes several cultural programmes on the various occasions such as: Remembering Swar Samrat Late Narayan Gopal, Dasain, Bhaeelo / Deusi, Bhanu Bhakta Acharya Jayanti, and Budha Jayanti etc. to gather a huge crowd and to inspire the homely feelings amongst each other.

Our achievements / social and cultural development activities in previous years

By organising various cultural programmes in Delhi and outside Delhi Kalamandir could help many poor and needy Nepalese people. Following are the few activities of the Kalamandir in the past:

  • In New Delhi our beloved artists have offered various cultural assistances to the Nepalese and the non-Nepalese organisations such as Bharat Nepal Maitri Sangh, The International Fine Art Society of India, Worldwide Friendship Association, Nepalese Students Association, World Health Organisation, Bharat Nepal Yuva Maitri Sangh U.P., and Nepalese Bhasha Vijyotsav Samiti etc.
  • We also been honoured to represent our country Nepal in various functions held in Delhi, those are: International Customs Pageants, which was organised by Delhi Commonwealth Woman Association in Ashoka hotel, New Delhi, Nepal Day function which was organised by Worldwide Friendship Association in Welcome Group Maurya Sheraton Hotel, New Delhi, in the Oberoi hotel by Bharat Nepal Maitri Sangh and by Royal Nepalese Embassy on the occasion of Dasain in holiday Inn Crowne Plaza, New Delhi which was only for foreign nationals and diplomats.
  • In the religious front, Kalamandir has always helped various social organisations through donations or physical contribution. In 1982 it has assisted in the construction of the Ram Durbar Mandir Shahdra, Delhi by means of donations. The Ram Durbar Mandir celebrates the Durga Pooja, Shivarartri, Ram Navami, Satyanarayan Katha, Krishna Ashtami, Buddh Purnima etc. festivals every year with great interest and enthusiasm.
  • In the social front Kalamandir has always stood in support of those who needed assistance be it financial or physical presence it has always done so. In the year 1982 the Gujrat cyclone created havoc in the community. Loss of hundreds of lives and properties has shaken our hearts. Kalamandir has organised a charity fund raising programmes through a cultural evening and the amount was dispatched to the victims of the disaster.
  • Another disaster hit the people of Nepal in the year 1988, when a severe earthquake shook Nepal. For relief measures we had donated for the cause which was duly acknowledged with thanks by the then Prime Minister Mr. Marich Man Singh Shrestha. A “Thank You” certificate in this regard was also presented to us. Besides this Kalamandir has also stood side by side to help the Nepalese community who were in need for one reason or the other and call on every individual to do the same for the sake of humanity.

Kalamandir wishes to mention that it had sponsored two of its artists to Nepalese Government Rajkiya Nepali Pragya Pratishthan under the scholarship programme.
