Carnatica, which strives to promote and propagate culture and human values apart from music is once again organizing World Peace Day celebrations in Chennai on September 21st, 2006. In association with Sri Krishna Sweets and Narada Gana Sabha, Carnatica has planned a full day’s activity in prominent public places, schools and colleges and various cultural organizations. Carnatica has been credited for its efforts by Peace One Day. 

The Peace One Day (POD) project began as the vision of one man, British filmmaker, Jeremy Gilley. Launched in September 1999, POD gained active support from all sectors of society, from governments through to individuals. In September 2001, POD achieved its primary objective. A United Nations General Assembly resolution (A/Res/55/282), put forward by the UK and Costa Rican governments, was unanimously adopted by all UN member states, formally establishing an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the global calendar on 21 September - Peace Day. All sectors of society are being asked to honour and celebrate the Day on 21 September. The vision of the Day extends far beyond the cessation of violent conflict and represents an opportunity for individuals to join in a moment of global unity.

Peace One Day has recognized Carnatica as a representative in India for observing and praising global awareness of Peace day on 21st September annually. For the first time in Peace Day's history we are about to see activities to mark Peace Day in every member state of the United Nations - a landmark moment in the Day's evolution. Over 180 member nations have given commitments for this noble cause.

The celebrations start from 6.00 a.m. on September 21st to 10.00 in the night with various multi-cultural activities. The day starts at Marina beach  from  6.00 a.m. and ends with the grand finale at Narada Gana Sabha Main Hall where we will have all faith prayer from different sects.
