The Padma Binani Foundation strives to create a widespread awareness of our rich cultural heritage in a modern era. As a reflection of its commitment to India's literary glory, the Foundation also aims to revive interest in the seminal writings of ancient Indian poets.
The goal of the Foundation is to blend the rich poetic treasures of India's saint-poets with melodious Indian music and present it to the world. This two-pronged approach to archiving India's deep-rooted literary and musical past in the broader context of the present and the future has attained a concrete manifestation through the publication of many music titles melodiously rendered by the leading artists of India.
The Foundation's aim is also to publish books of substance, highlighting the core values of Indian culture. Smt. Binani has been committed to bringing Indian cultural heritage closer to the younger minds. With this objective, efforts are being made to bring to the fore, excellence in children's literature in different Indian languages.
The Foundation recognizes and encourages the talent and the contributions made by both emerging and established writers by funding an annual awards program in which each year, writers representing India's diverse literary traditions are honored for their significant contributions to India's literary heritage.
