Guwahati: Assam Governor Prof. Jagdish Mukhi said, “Drama is the artistic manifestation of different phenomena in our society. Through drama we can look for solutions to the problems that our society is suffering. Drama can be helpful in projecting the problems in a rather satirical way and can provide ways and means to solve such problems”.

Inaugurating an All India Multi-lingual Drama and Dance Competition and Award giving festival at Goreswar in Baksa today, Governor Prof. Mukhi said, “Assam has a rich legacy of the art of dance and drama. The great Vaishnavite saint Srimanta Sankardeva was instrumental in creating Ankiya Bhaona. Using this rich legacy we can increasingly use dance and drama to project our socio-cultural problems and give suggestions to their solutions”.

Thanking the organizer National Performing Arts Association of India and Taksyshila, Assam for organizing the event Prof. Jagdish Mukhi further said that such programme would strengthen and spread the movement of dance and drama to every nook and corner of the state. He also thanked the organizers for displaying inherent zeal, commitment and love without which the programme would not have been possible. He also thanked all the delegates for travelling the extra mile to make this congregation a success.
