The association registered with Indian Embassy in Kuwait is dedicated to promotion of arts, culture and social service among Indian community in Kuwait. The organization gets its name from the great Maurya dynasty of Patliputra of ancient India, which had kings like Ashoka, Chandragupt and Sher Shah Suri. On its 20th anniversary celebration last January the association presented a grand show know as ‘Maurya Manch’, still fresh in the collective memory of Indian community in Kuwait.
