About Resource Person:

Dr. Geetanjali Tiwari, was born in Bilaspur and brought up in India, but has been serving as an academician in Lawrence, Kansas, USA since long. She holds a PhD in Cultural Anthropology from Pennsylvania State University and MSc in Wildlife from the Wildlife Institute of India. Dr. Tiwari has served at University of Kansas and created the programme of South Asian Studies there, starting with the introduction of Hindi Language.  She then expanded it to teach various aspects of Indian culture, including mantra chanting, yoga, cooking etc. She created the study abroad program to India and thus created the opportunity for numerous batches of American students to experience India first hand. She quit the University position recently and is now fully engaged in learning and teaching the Sanskrit language, chanting, yoga and Indian culture from her home, as a service.

Dr. Geetanjali takes keen interest in classical music and art. She has been trained in diverse forms of Indian Classical Music from a young age in India. She learned Hindustani Khayal style and moved on to semi-classical gazal, thumri forms by various teachers including the well-known vocalist Shanti Hiranand, a prominent disciple of the vocalist queen BegamAkhtar.  Dr. Tiwari also had the honor to learn Dhrupad under Z.M. Dagar and Z.F. Dagar in Mumbai, under a SPIC-MACAY scholarship. She has since been associated with the prestigious SPIC MACAY organization and brought numerous eminent music and dance artists to the University of Kansas. She attended, organized and played a key role in many national and international conventions. 

Love for Indian art, culture and values are integral to Dr. Tiwari’s life even after serving for so long in the USA. Dr. Tiwari strongly believes in the value of experiential knowledge and her teachings demonstrate that.  She not only maintains deep and strong ties with her American students but also has maintained strong ties with her roots in India and returns every year to India for long durations.

Her online sessions shall be beneficial for the students and it shall motivate them to better question and understand Indian Culture from a global perspective. She is well versed in both Hindi and English language which shall allow her to reach and interact with maximum number of participants.
