What is Abhar Utsav?

Spreading attitude of Gratitude

Join the global community to celebrate Abhar Utsav this November. Abhar Utsav will instill and promote the attitude of Gratitude, around the world. YOU can support to bring this project to reality and bring smiles to a million faces.

Abhar Utsav started in 2015, when during 15 - 21 November, thousands of college students sent Thank-you postcards to express gratitude to different people in their lives. It is an occasion to reflect on all that we consume from the world and Thank people who have contributed positively to our lives. The attitude of Gratitude enables us to remain humble, expand our mindset and become Happier. Many more young people, from several different countries expressed interest to participate and take Abhar Utsav further in their organisations or campuses. More details on Abhar Utsav are available on

In 2016, there would be over a million people touched by this concept! Young volunteers (Abhar Utsav Leaders) are spreading the word and sharing with people beautiful Abhar postcards designed in association with Art for Akanksha.

Art for Akanksha is about children and their fascinating creative expression. It empowers children from low-income communities with a powerful art education, provides art-related career opportunities for Akanksha alumni and generates revenue through high-quality products.
