North Indian culture brought to life

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 4 � Colourful costumes, swift and graceful body movements combined with some music full of life brought the rhythm of the desert onto the premises of Shilpgram here.

Two days of dance and music from the North provided an opportunity to the Guwahatians to get a feel of the way of life of the communities of the Northern countryside.

Aptly titled the Desert Symphony � Uttarayan, the grand cultural show which concluded on Friday and organised by the North East Zone Cultural Centre, Dimapur and the North Central Zone Cultural Centre, Allahabad highlighted the dance forms of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab, Bihar, Uttarakhand and Haryana.

It may be mentioned here that the North East Zone Cultural Centre has been regularly hosting various cultural programmes at Shilpgram to promote the budding artistes and the art and culture of the region. However, the public presence in such events has not been to the expected level of the organizers.

The ambience was mesmerizing � it was an open air presentation, even though the number of spectators was not many for this Desert Symphony.

�The location of Shilpgram is not convenient for most music and dance lovers. On top of that there is little publicity of the programmes held at Shilpgram,� said Arindam Choudhury, a spectator who was enjoying with his family, the performances on the concluding day.

Praising the dancers, Choudhury said that it was a memorable experience for him to watch the folk dances of the North sitting under the open skies.

Dandia Garba of Gujarat, Bhangara Giddha of Punjab, and all the other dance forms enthralled the audience present.
