Manipur Dance Festival Entertains, Inspires, and Educates

Manipur : Devotees organized the first International Indian Classical Dance Festival, “Indiclad,” at ISKCON’s Sri Sri Radha Krishnachandra “Manimandir” in Imphal, Manipur, this February.

Manipur, a state in the far northeast of India, borders with Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. Although the erstwhile Kingdom of Manipur came under British rule during 1891, the country still proudly wears its strong Vaishnava heritage on its sleeve.

Alongside Indiclad, ISKCON Manipur organized a convergence seminar entitled “A collaborative and holistic approach to address the issues of HIV infection and drug abuse prevention” on the temple premises.

The “Indiclad” festival, which featured dancers from India, Malaysia, France and Bangladesh, ran for four days from Thursday February 18 through Sunday February 21. The convergence seminar, meanwhile, was held on February 19 and 20.
