About Akshar Mahotsav

The Calligraphy Foundation’s Akshar Mahotsav is one of its awareness-raising initiatives. We are working constantly toward promoting the use of paper, pens, and ink. Moving in the same direction, we encourage understanding of this blooming visual form of writing by celebrating “World Calligraphy Day” in India as Akshar Mahotsav (Akshar = letter, Mahotsav = festival, which when combined stands for the festival of letters). Through this event, we connect with the calligraphy community in India and encourage them to develop their artistic abilities and express them in unique ways.

Abhishek Vardhan Singh and Ekta Chahar are the minds behind the concept of Akshar Mahotsav’23. You are all cordially invited to take part in an unforgettable journey of artistic expression and cultural exploration where the magic of Indian culture comes alive through the pen strokes. Witness the mesmerizing beauty of calligraphy entwined with the essence of Indian traditions, languages, and scripts.

Why Are We Celebrating Akshar Mahotsav ?


We are bringing together calligraphers from all over India. Our goal is to foster a strong calligraphy community and connect them with artists from various disciplines. We currently have a chain of calligraphers connecting from all over our country, practising various scripts.


For a thorough study of the scripts, we are attempting to provide comprehensive materials. It encompasses knowledge of the origins, development, and shifting functions of diverse scripts from antiquity to the present.


Inspiration, in our opinion, requires connection. We want to bridge the gap between youth and the masters . We have a committed council of honorary members who are the pioneers in this industry and a great source of inspiration & direction.
