Idea Behind Creating The Pink Lotus Academia

While the world adapted to closed lives this year, we realised that creative pursuits could open up avenues of the mind and heart in various ways. As Covid struck, virtual platforms opened up with innovations and experiments. From education, to business to procuring groceries.

In tandem with this radical change in the medium of learning, we identified that classrooms are not the only option to knowledge sharing. Research ensued on market trends whereby Online emerged as one of prime variants of learning in these altered times.

The Pink Lotus Academia stands out because it saves on conveyance costs, saves travelling and preparation time. On an easily accessible single platform, one gets to choose from a flexible module of multiple options such as Dance, Music, Yoga and Visual Art.

We customise learning experiences so that the student can learn at their own pace. On an open platform such as this, the pressure of being surrounded by peers is obviated. This enables students to absorb information better. Especially lone souls who thrive in solitude.

Online learning nurtures management skills in youngsters as they are egged to coordinate their own study time. They are encouraged to take ownership by committing to something and working to complete it with dedication. Thus, in a way, fosters career responsibilities that employers and recruiters search for in candidates.

The High Points of learning Indian Classical Music, Dance, Art and Culture and Yoga at The Pink Lotus Academia.

To create an Online Academy for Indian Art and Culture in sync with Traditional learning.

There isn’t any online platform offering authentic teachings in Indian Classical Art and Culture for preparing students and seekers to become an established artist.

A start had to be made.To bring in classic, world class content for students even as we keep the essence of traditional teaching intact.

A Culture of Creativity and Growth

The Pink Lotus Academia is an Online Tutorial Platform, a creative organisation playing on the benefits of Indian Classical Arts and Culture so that they help in boosting artistic faculties beyond the realm of performance to health and well-being. The idea is to incorporate their benefits and wholesomeness into any activity of our personal and social lives.
