Akshar Mahotsav’24 (AM’24) celebrates the art of calligraphy and the beauty of Indian languages and scripts. This year, the event will take place in August in New Delhi. The theme of AM’24 is Lipikrit Bharat: “Unveiling the Calligraphic Script writing tradition in Bharat.”.

Calligraphy occupied a distinguished place among the various creative practises that have evolved on the Indian Subcontinent. The magnificent corpus of scripts produced across the region over thousands of years is shaped by its diverse geographies and embodies a rich history of culture. We have planned to put these together in AM. The theme of AM’24 is to Celebrate Indian Scripts and show how deeply ingrained scripts are in the socio-cultural dynamics of our country. We aim to bring Indian traditions, languages, and scripts together to represent them on a global level .
