Today, more than ever, the young are drawn to the Buddhist way of life to address modern challenges such as digital invasion, unexplained changes, and conflicts. With this increasing curiosity, it is time, to look at the different aspects of Buddhism. ‘’Bodhi Parva: BIMSTEC Buddhist Heritage Festival” focuses to do so, in today’s context. The Festival aims to raise awareness of Buddhist philosophies amongst the youth, taking off from the legacy of the seven BIMSTEC countries (Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Bhutan & Nepal) that are bound by a shared history of social, cultural and religious beliefs influenced by Buddhism. With this objective in mind, a BIMSTEC online Quiz on “Buddhism and the BIMSTEC countries” will be organised.
The Quiz Finale, on the last day of the Festival - 10th December, will be hosted by the very popular television producer, director and quiz show host Siddharth Basu.
