Experience The Rich Maritime Culture of India

Coming soon…


From Dwarika in the west to Guwahati in the east; from Varanasi/Ayodhya in the north to Rameswaram in the south – rivers and seas have deep meanings and connect within the social psyche of India. They connect people and their hearts - janmanas, in an abstract but firm manner. Rivers and seas have a deep impact on our lives, whether we live near or farther to them. From everyday economic activities to our rituals and religious texts, rivers and seas, and the people around them, occupy a special place in our hearts and lives.


About the Conference

For highlighting this deep impression of the significance and imagery of rivers-ports-shipping in everyday life, we are organizing a series of regional, national and international events (dialogues/conferences) with participation from intellectuals, influencers and practitioners of the society. These events would yield a set of new literature on the significance of the ports/riverways/shipping in everyday life.



Scholars, Academicians, Policy practitioners who work around the issues of shipping, ports, waterways, rivers will be invited to participate in the conferences. Bharat Pravah will serve as a common platform to bring together stakeholders from different walks for the purpose of creating a larger vision of shipping, rivers, seas & people.


Engagement / Awareness

Along with organizing events and conferences, Bharat Pravah, also intends to make ports, rivers and shipping a part of the everyday discourse of citizens, with special focus on young demography. For this purpose, through social media posts, reels and podcast, Bharat Pravah raises awareness about the rich maritime history of India and the latest happenings in the shipping industry as well as various endeavours of the Ministry.
