Since the time immemorial, Kumbh is celebrated by scholars by diving into the holy Ganga and preaching to the pilgrims on dharma (Good Governance). The spiritual, mesmerising and epiphanic value of Kumbh Mela in India leaves an indelible imprint on the minds of the devout pilgrims.
Kumbh Conclave 2019 at Prayagraj and Goa was designed to practice the same to discuss economics, politics, society and culture as part of good governance i.e., Dharma with the scholars from all across the world.
Other than the spiritual values of the occasion , it is world's best place to experience a perfect example of public administration ,town planning ,social governance and civic management where crores of people come , stay in the city of makeshift tents at the sands with all the necessary facilities of public utility , police and security , railway and bus arrangements, sanctity and cleanliness ,roads of chequered plate ,pontoon bridges , water supply ,drainage ,markets & stalls and power house for regular supply of electricity.
For almost 3 months (differ in case of Haridwar /Nashik/Ujjain ) a new city is formed at the confluence of holy rivers which is recognized as intangible heritage in the UNESCO now.
First Kumbh Conclave of this country was organised during 27-29th July 2019 in the city Prayagraj and then in Goa before the actual Kumbh at Triveni Sangam.

After that we organised Sangam Samvad sessions during the whole period of Kumbh Prayagraj at the mela ashram of Parmarth Niketan, Harihar Ashram and Akshayvat Pandal of Prayagraj Mela Pradhikaran. All these dialogues were sponsored, promoted by the government of Uttar Pradesh and Prayagraj Mela Pradhikaran and organised by the India Think Council, New Delhi.
