Nonprofit organization Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts

The IGNCA was launched on 19th November, 1985 by the late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi at a function where the symbolism of the components was clearly articulated at different levels. The elements – fire, water, earth, sky and vegetation – were brought together. Five rocks from five five major rivers – Sindhu, Ganga, Kaveri, Mahanadi and the Narmada (where the most ancient ammonite fossils are found) were composed into sculptural forms. These will remain at the site as reminders of the antiquity of Indian culture and the sacredness of her rivers and her rocks. In a simulated pool, the first of the principles of vegetation, the lotus bloomed. Shri Rajiv Gandhi floated lighted lamps on the water.
