GUWAHATI, Oct 29 � The colourful five-day cultural extravaganza � Discover Northeast � was inaugurated by the director of North East Zone Cultural Centre (NEZCC), Dimapur, Lipokmar Tzudir and Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) director Shankar Prasad Kakoti Bora at Shilpgram on Wednesday.
The crafts exhibition was made open for public where artisans from different parts of the region and the country are participating. The food festival with traditional delicacies during the event has also drawn the attention of the visitors.
In addition to that the Book Mela and Children�s Park facilities are also available for the public.
The evening was brightened up by spectacular display of magic by Jadu Samrat Vikram Talukdar. His performance mesmerised the visitors. That was followed by another wonderful performance by renowned mime artiste Mainul Hoque and his troupe.
Discover North East has been conceptualized keeping in view the enchanting and colourful culture of the North East Region that deserves higher appreciation and respect. NEZCC is of the opinion that the atrocities faced by North East communities in other parts of the country is primarily out of ignorance about the region; and therefore the need of the hour is to showcase the best of the North East way of life with a concerted effort.
