Vikram Rai Medhi, Chief Festival Curator and CEO of NEIFT shares, “We are feeling blessed to have the support of Various Central Govt. Ministries, Bodoland Territorial Council, Assam Government and management of the New Motibagh Club in making our 13th Edition a reality. All have encouraged and supported us to bring the Music, Culture, Fashion, Delicacy, Handicrafts, Handlooms, Tourism Destinations here to Delhi and create a mini North East for two days at Chanakyapuri. We believe that such festivals bring people of different communities closer and enable in eroding the negative myths about North East Region (NER).
NER is a culturally diverse and rich region with its own socio-anthropological history. Its terrain is perfect for adventure Tourism but unfortunately many are not aware of it. This festival has been organised to bring Delhi-NCR people closer to its culture”.
