15th National Festival of Creative Arts - Dr Sunil Kothari

I am a great admirer of Bijon Mukherjee, an indefatigable organizer, art lover and never-say-die enthusiast, who after retiring from  Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), upon a suggestion of Lalit Mansingh, the then Director General of ICCR, started an institution Impresario India, presenting group choreographic works in ‘ National Festival of New Dance Choreography’ annually.
For the past 14 years, Bijon-da has organized several other functions covering Rabindra Sangeet, recitation of poetry, plays, folk dances and what have you. He cast his net wide and encouraged several artistes. The annual National Festival of New Dance Choreography became extremely popular and brought to the Capital senior and young choreographers with their new group works, in different dance forms, including Sattriya recently recognized as the eighth classical dance form.
