Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Vijay Goel today inaugurated the India Art Festival at Thyagraj Stadium Complex in Delhi. More than 6 nations with over 4000 artistes will participate in this year’s edition. There are more than 100 stalls have been set up to display art work and paintings.
Interacting with the media Goel said, “India Art Festival is the only art fair in India that presents two annual editions in two different cities –Mumbai and New Delhi. IAF provides unique opportunity to the art galleries and artists to create a network with the art dealers, art collectors and art buyers. I would request everyone to visit this festival and explore the various art work”.
Goel also spotted a painting which he felt depicts the story of Zaira Wasim – the young star from the film Dangal. Goel stated that our daughters are now breaking free and exploring various avenues and even excelling in them, they must be encouraged”.

Since its first edition in 2011, India Art Festival successfully facilitated expansion of the periphery of art patronage by mounting the grand art fairs not only in India but in the overseas countries like South Korea and others. After the eight successful editions at Mumbai & New Delhi, India Art Festival positions itself as a successful and tested new module of art fair with a focus on both - art galleries and independent artists.
India Art Festival is being held at Thyagaraj Stadium, New Delhi from 19 to 22 Jan 2017 and at Nehru Center, Mumbai, India from 02 to 05 November 2017. In the last seven editions, India Art Festival attracted more than 200,000 visitors.

My vision for Delhi stems from these inspiring words of Swami Vivekanada. I sincerely believe that Delhi has enough number of brave, bold men and women who can make it not only one of the best cities.

Sir, it's a request to you kindly raise the issue of unalloted plots to DDA Rohini 1981 scheme. We are waiting for it for 33 years as well as 25000 families are waiting too but DDA has given just paper assurance. Kindly look into the matter sir.

Youth Development Youth is the backbone of our country's progress and we all need to work towards their overall development. Apart from providing training & employment in traditional careers I have always encouraged active youth participation in politics.

Law and order is the most important aspect of any government as it provides its people the critical protection against non-social elements. Delhi, being the capital of India, must stand as a role model for security and safety of its citizens.

Housing To own a home, irrespective of the size, is a dream cherished by many. I understand this sentiment and that is why I championed the cause to help protect the applicants who were promised homes and felt cheated by the Delhi government.

Power is one of the basic amenities of life happens to be a matter of great concern for the citizens of Delhi. Faulty meters, power shortage and inflated power bills are the most common grievances faced by every other citizen.

Water is vital for the existence of life but we need to realize that like all the other resources it is not unlimited and, going by the experts' opinion, the next war could be fought because of it.

Lottery may look like a deceivingly simple subject but then looking back on our campaign we realize that we tackled an extremely complicated issue. The subject remained unresolved in spite of being under consideration by the Govt. of India for over 30 years.


Chandni Chowk I have a keen interest in exploring and learning about culture, traditions and Heritage. Chandni Chowk, my former parliamentary constituency, is a perfect example of the multicultural and multi-religious India.
