A dream of the Roerich family to create an Indian centre for studying culture and arts of Russia and India will shortly come true. The foundation stone of the Russian-Indian Academy of Arts has recently been laid in the Kulu Valley where the Roerichs of Russian origin lived for almost 30 years. The Roerichs were famous painters, philosophers and experts in oriental studies. The foundation stone was laid by Alexander Kadakin, Russian ambassador to India, vice-president, founder and life-time trustee of the Roerich International Memorial Trust.

The Roerich family, Nikolai and Elena and their children Yuri and Svetoslav, were interested in fine art, archeology, oriental languages, handicraft, music, botany and medicine and studied them. At present, the Institute of Himalayan Studies and the workshop of Nikolai Roerich are next to their house, which is a memorial museum. The Elena Roerich Arts School and Collage is in one of these buildings, says Alena Adamkova, the executive director and curator of the Russian-Indian Trust and the Roerich Museum:

“Over 150 children are studying at the school and the collage. However, many more children wish to study there. They study classical music, singing, dance, painting, weaving and wood-crafting besides general subjects. At present, we cannot admit more children owing to lack of space,” Alena Adamkova said.

However, this problem will be solved with the setting of the Russian-Indian Academy of Arts, says Alexander Kadakin: “We believe that the children of the Roerich school and college will shift to a new building next year. Ten million rupees allocated by the former Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee will be used to build the academy. The Russian companies, such as Vnesheconombank, Vneshtorgbank and Rosvooruzhenie are also involved in the project,” Alexander Kadakin said.
