The three-day event will have discussions, seminars, cultural events, and exhibitions which showcase the rich diversity of the nation.

‘Lokmanthan 2022’ is an attempt to keep the folk culture of Assam and the North East alive. The formal Inaugural Session of the event is set to begin later today, whereas the Inauguration of Exhibition and Cultural evening will be held at 5 pm.

Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will be the chief guest of the event. The Inaugural Session will also be graced by Prof Jagdish Mukhi, Governor of Assam and Nagaland as the guest of honor while Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma will also address the session as a distinguished guest.

Intellectual Forum for North East is the local organizer of this event and is co-hosted by Assam Tourism Development Corporation.

‘Lokmanthan’ this year celebrates the beauty of Lok-parampara with an exhibit of our traditional treasures entwined in the cultural practices of our communities.

From exploring the way of life in a North Eastern household to art and craft, from Majuli’s mask making to Manipur’s SagolKangjei, from traditional musical instruments to folk music, from celebrating the icons of NER to revisiting the historical martyrs, ‘Lokmanthan’ this year is a tribute to the splendor of a vibrant ‘Bharat’.
