It is a week-long event to commemorate the joy of philanthropy - an opportunity to spread kindness, joy, and happiness. Daan Utsav demonstrates the importance of having a big heart rather than a big pocket. Even those who would be considered economically disadvantaged have found joy in giving.
Daan Ustav, also known as 'India’s Festival of Giving', is celebrated every year from 2nd to 8th October. For almost a decade now, people from around the world have been coming together to celebrate the spirit of giving. Though it initially started as a movement that was mostly recognized and supported in urban areas, the spirit of Daan Utsav is rapidly spreading to smaller towns and cities and rural areas as well.
