Mulam 2017 is a National Seminar & Dance Festival on Guru Shishya Parampara. The influence of a Guru stands prominent in all walks of life of a Shishya. Guru is the one who inspires and illuminates the thoughts of a Shishya and sets the lens through with the Shishya views the world. This has been the essence of Guru Shishya Parampara which has been the ancient system of imparting knowledge; a system unique to India. It has been followed for ages now in the training of dance, music, yoga, theatre arts and other arts. All legends, irrespective of the field, have been trained through the Guru Shishya Parampara. With the changing times, our classical arts have moved on from being taught in a Guru's courtyard to closed classrooms in institutions/universities.

However, in spite of several social, economic and religious changes that have crept in, Guru Poornima is a part of our calendar and undoubtedly all ancient arts begin their lessons with the chant "Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru devo Maheshwara..."

Being in the field of dance for over 3 decades and a guru for nearly 15 years, Vyjayanthi Kashi strongly feels the need to reinforce this wonderful Parampara. Hence Shambhavi School of Dance, headed by Vyjayanthi Kashi, is organizing the third edition of Mulam - a National Seminar and Dance Festival dedicated to Guru ShishyaParampara on 9th July 2017 at Dr. H N Kalakshetra, Bengaluru. The morning seminar features eminent speakers from the fields of Music, Dance and Theatre followed by evening performances by Guru & Shishya as part of Guru Poornima celebrations.

OBJECTIVE OF THE SEMINAR:
1) To gain a deeper understanding of Guru Shishya Parampara
2) The relevance of Guru Shishya Parampara in today's globalized world
3) Changing trends in Guru Shishya Parampara
4) To suggest ways to improve and nourish this relation which is slowly fading
5) Does Guru Shisya Parampara exist in the institutionalized mode of teaching?
If so how effective is it?

7) The pros and cons of Guru Shishya Parampara
8) To provide a continuing platform to openly share and discuss ideas, problems and steps for further developing this beautiful relation.
