‘Shilpgram’ literary meaning village/hub for art and craft come alive with the shilpgram utsaav at every year end since its inception. Here one can enjoy the vivid cultures in form of cultural program performed by different artists all round India strongly showing the integrity and prosperity of the nation.
In the chain of cultural program after witnessing the culture of Maharashtra now it is the time of its neighbor state, the smallest in all, land of orchards and water GOA. The Third day of Shilgram(23 December, 2011) was celebrated as Goa Day which started with Ganesh Vandana as we Indians believe that while starting the thing let us begin by the name of God. One of the major attractions on this day was Samai Dance form which is associated with the traditional brass lamps, a Goan Handicraft. The balance and the concentration required for holding the lamp on the head while performing the variety of moments amazed everyone present there. Though a state full of fishermen is small but is vast and vibrant in culture. The event also included performances by Rajasthani Folk Dancers. Check out the exclusive pictures clicked by me 🙂
