Puranava is an annual cultural competition conducted by Global Organization for Divinity in different parts of the world. In India it is conducted as an annual inter-school Heritage Quiz Contest in Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Tuticorin and many other cities.

In November 2017, Puranava USA was first held in Dallas, TX as an open cultural quiz contest.

In April 2018, Puranava came to Houston where it grew to be an Indian Culture Festival with exhibits, performances and a number of culture-based youth competitions including a Heritage Quiz, Art and Story-telling.
