The first-ever International Gita Mahotsav will be held in Kurukshetra from December 6 to 10.
The mega event would set a world record with the recitation of ‘Ashtadash Shaloki Gita’ by as many as 18,000 students at one go.
It will also be simultaneously chanted by hundreds of people in many countries of the world, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said at a press conference in New Delhi on Saturday.
President Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate the Mahotsav on December 6.
Youths from 574 districts of the country would reach Kurukshetra, showcasing one Shloka each scripted on their traditional dresses.
They would also bring along sand from their respective districts which would be used to make an idol of Lord Krishna to symbolise unity and integrity of the country.
