Prakriti Foundation was founded by Ranvir Shah in Chennai in 1998 to host events enquiring into our cultural heritage and inheritance. The vision behind Prakriti was to host events that would play a catalytic role in changing and enlarging the cultural scene in Chennai. Thus, Prakriti Foundation saw itself typically as the moving force behind events as diverse as  music concerts, seminars and serious scholarly discourse, multi media events, experimental and protest cinema  and theatre festivals.

One of the many festivals hosted by them is the  Thiruvaiyaru Festival of Sacred Music: A three day festival with the ambition to restore the pride of the Music Centre that existed at the time of Saint.Thyagaraja, and showcase it for the NRI’s, tourists as well as the local people.
