About Us

Noopura Bhramari (R.) Karnataka - one of the premier institutions of research and publication in India (with ISSN No 2321-2519) proposes to address a long felt, un-spelt academic need since 13 years. The founder chairman was B.G.Narayana Bhat, who has served the historic Omkareshwara temple Madikeri for 55 years. He had deep knowledge on art and Adhyatma, has chaired and guided the institution for 13 years and had been the chief patron, Artiste, Art promoter .

Noopurabhramari is devoted exclusively to the promotion of publication, advanced research and scholarship on Dance and allied arts as well as to developing requisite resources in Art. It is a representation of the needy art community towards self-help and thereby leaves a contribution behind it towards developing a fertile field for the future as well.

Noopura Bhramari has initiated its activities in 2007 Mahashivaratri. Since its inception, Mahashivaratri has been a divine milestone for it’s publication, research and programmes. Publication of academic books, release of online Bilingual (Kannada/English) Bimonthly research journal, awards and felicitations to the contributors, conduct of academic sessions, holding periodic academic classes on Natyashastra, Nattuvanga, Research, Cultural journalism and Puraana katha;  have all been some important and varied activities that Noopura Bhramari has associated with and shouldered responsibilities efficiently and with a distinct identity. Research is a term wedded to holiness, nobility and truth. Hence any field that wishes to contribute timelessly, would embrace research alone. As a means to cascade through the waters of the 'time' that created, witnessed, supported and many times also eroded the various traditions; 'research' being empowered by its tool 'methodology', makes the task utmost simple, economical, authentic and resourceful.

Noopura Bhramari has a wing on Dance research which is exclusively meant for creating opportunities for objective studies and systematic research in dance traditions. It aims towards a holistic integrated approach in encompassing all its allied forms including literature, music, theatre, sculpture, painting and art history. Dedicated Researchers/students may takepart and get assistance for smoothly carrying their futuristic research activities by becoming subscribers and contributors to journal as well as members of Dance Research Wing.
