The seventh day of Virasat festival saw children from city schools participating in various workshops on traditional art like aipan, pattachitra and kite making among others.
Visitors also witnessed performances by artists from Mathura who performed Rasalila that depicts the traditional story of Lord Krishna. The 15 member troupe called Chatkula Niritya Sanskritik Manch from Mathura also performed ‘fulo ki holi’ which is a typical dance from the birthplace of Krishna and a softer version of ‘laath maar holi’.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The festival gave us a glimpse of other states as well,” said Renu Kothiyal, a local resident.
The visitors to the fest also enjoyed Bihu dance which is a folk dance of Assam. “Virasat has become the melting pot of many cultures and I am looking forward to the events lined up in the next few days,” said resident Varun Singh.
