Thousands of musicians and dancers are expected to perform on a stage that will be spread in around seven acres, set amid 300 acres of Delhi's Mayur Vihar, Narasimhan said. Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will personally lead the two-day festival.

Among the reception committee to the forum are US Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, former UN secretary general Boutros Boutros-Ghali and former chief justice of India RC Lahoti.

"We aim for a peaceful world and peace starts at the level of the individual before it can move towards society," said Narasimhan. "When thousands of individuals radiating positivity come together, it can make a difference to society."
