The Russian-Indian Culture Festival took place at the Roerich Indian estate after a two-year hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The flags of Russia and India were raised near the artist's house during the opening ceremony. The event was organized in honor of the 147th anniversary of Nicholas Roerich, the website of the International Center of the Roerichs reports.

The International Roerich Memorial Trust (IRMT) and the Moscow International Center of the Roerichs with the support of the Russian Embassy in India and local authorities helped organize the forum. 

Paintings by Nicholas Roerich and the Banner of Peace, created by the Russian artist Veronika Voronova were displayed during the exhibition. The festival program also included two expositions of paintings by contemporary Indian artists.

The children's drawings competition became a special event of the festival.
