The diverse folk dances of the southern state in their traditional dresses fascinated all at Rajpath.
Tamil Nadu has a rich tradition of folk arts and crafts displaying skills and dexterity handed down from generations. The conduct of folk dances on occasions of temple festivals and community functions give entertainment, mirth and merry to the villagers. The Eastern Zone Cultural Centre, Kolkata, performed Bajasal, a folk dance of Odisha which is usually performed during weddings. The Bajasal is one of the most beautiful folk dances of Kalahandi, Odisha. Here 'Baja' means the instrument, a drum played in the dance and 'Sal' means the place where these instruments are played. Before the marriage function, many pre-marriage functions are held according to their traditional rites and rituals. Apart from this, the students of Mount Abu Public School and Vidya Bharti School, Delhi also performed dance to highlight the government's Atma Nirbhar Bharat initiative.
