‘Lokmanthan’ this year celebrates the beauty of Lok-parampara with an exhibit of our traditional treasures entwined in the cultural practices of our communities.
From exploring the way of life in a North Eastern household to art and craft, from Majuli’s mask making to Manipur’s SagolKangjei, from traditional musical instruments to folk music, from celebrating the icons of NER to revisiting the historical martyrs, ‘Lokmanthan’ this year is a tribute to the splendor of a vibrant ‘Bharat’.
