Director Visits Nashville

Ramanan Nagarajan, Member of the Board of Directors of NIOS.

Ramanan Nagarajan, while visiting the Goswami Academy in Houston, Texas, took a short visit to NIOS’s headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee from Friday, May 10th to Sunday, May 12th. The visit was extremely productive with community meetings on both Friday and Saturday as well as personal meetings with other Board Members, Officers, and Institute workers.

In conclusion, Mr. Nagarajan’s thought was that NIOS should fully develop the local NIOS programs by looking for a residential education facility near the local Middle Tennessee University (MTSU) with an aim to:
  1. Develop a Teacher and Educational Administrator Training College.
  2. Develop a School Certification program acceptable within all US States.
  3. Aim toward developing our tertiary, university level educational programs.

Mr. Nagarajan and H. P. Swami et al. should be participating in NIOS programs in India in the fall.

South American Tour: Oct - Nov 2018

Members of NIOS organized and participated in an excellent tour of South America during October and November of 2018. The central theme was Art and the Sacred and was co-sponsored by the National Library of Peru with the participation of several universities, national and international performers and scholars, and the Indian Embassy.

A similar event was also co-sponsored in Chile at Corporacion Cultural Las Condes, the best cultural center in Santiago and with such elite international consulting agencies as IF - Idea Factory.

Participates included Patricia Llosa from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Dhruva O'Shea with Aboriginal Art from Australia, the National Conservatory of Music from Peru with 17th-century devotional music, Cristián Contreras with his own prestigious graduate school, radio show and 13,000 followers on Facebook, Professor Jose Luis Valencia, the pre-Hispanic dance traditions of La Colchera Dances in Mexico.

Everyone agreed that the events for quality, variety and depth were "over-the-top" and the plan now is to proceed with Education and the Sacred in 2019 and 2020 with work in progress of San Marcos University, the oldest university in the Western hemisphere, as co-sponsor.

Please join us in these world changing events. Art, Music, Drama, Cinema all in chorus.
