For months, many of us were cooped up indoors. Wearing a face mask and maintaining social distancing turned out to be the “new normal”. But one thing which took us Indians back to our roots was greeting people with folded hands. In order to cut down the risk of the transmission of the virus via handshake, many of us, and a few global leaders also, urged others to greet people with folded hands. Well, it seems like though the global pandemic has created a distance between all of us, our culture and traditions are managing to keep all of us united. A recent example of it could be a 10-day painting workshop, which was held in Agartala, Tripura.
Interestingly, the locals of Agartala, Tripura, participated in a 10-day long Folk and Tribal Mural Painting Workshop at Lankamura. The workshop conducted by Sanskar Bharati was an attempt to revive the rich cultural heritage of the country and Tripura. The painting workshop was inaugurated by MLA Dr Dilip Das on Wednesday. In the above video, we can see that a lot of people in the workshop are amateur while a bunch of girls and women have expertise in the art of wall painting. On the other hand, the video also highlights how during the workshop, the participants are following the social distancing normas and wore face masks during the entire process.
In a joint venture, Sanskar Bharati of Tripura along with Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre Kolkata under the Ministry of Culture and ICA department of Tripura organised the workshop.
