In the plethora of festival, comes one that’s really unique and “The Songs & Dances festival of North-East” happened at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New-Delhi on 11th April 2015. The festival was organized by the North-East council as a sheer activity to promote the deep-rooted and ravishing culture of seven sister states of North-eastern India, which has sadly always been ignored or overshadowed by the other dominant parts of India.

The festival was a must visit for any music, food, culture lover or anyone who simply wants to know a bit more about a large chunk of his country that most people don’t know about, The place had some local food like rice-beer, sticky red-rice and dried/cured meat also for one’s who were willing to try these at a nominal rate. The risky one had an option to try the Bhut Jolokia or the Ghost chilli’s which are supposed to be the hottest chilli’s in the world.
