Every evening started with prayers rendered in group by leading musicians including legendary Raghunath Panigrahi, and then followed solo, duet and group dances. No dancer encroached upon next artiste’s time. A well designed, attractive program book, illustrated with photographs of participating dancers, giving credits for the musicians, rhythm, script, brief synopsis, introductions of dancers, raga and tala has made it a collector’s item. Such meticulous care places this festival in a class by itself. If I have written all this in such detail, I have done it on purpose so other festival organizers can follow suit.
