Spring Festival 2014 culminates
DIMAPUR, MARCH 9
THE seven-day Spring Festival 2014 organised by the North East Zone Cultural Centre (NEZCC) culminated this evening.
The grand finale tonight also had the biggest turn-out with Dimapurians and majority school children who thronged the NEZCC premises to witness the performance of the various artistes coming from all the zonal centres across the country.
There were cultural troupes from all the eight North East states and others including Kerala, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Odisha, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka representing their own zones. For almost two hours, the various cultural troupes enthralled the audience with traditional songs and dances. Unlike other years, this year majority of the artistes from northeastern states were of the younger age group.
Earlier, Director NEZCC Lipokmar Tzudir said he considers the Spring Festival as a huge success in the fact that so many talents had the opportunity to perform and participate.
Lipokmar, who took charge of NEZCC as the Director last year on December 19, also expressed hope that the young generation will carry forward the timeless rich cultural heritage we inherit, adding that “it has been a privilege and responsibility to groom and hand them over the responsibility to carry forward our prestige and honour.”
He also extended appreciation to the artistes coming different zonal centres for their participation and making the event more colourful and meaningful.
