Balasore, December 26 (LocalWire): The district best known for its Chandipur beach will soon be buzzing with activities, including a literature festival, a national-level art workshop, a book fair, and a national intercollegiate multilingual drama fest.
These will be part of the week-long Chandrabhaga Mahatsov that will be inaugurated at Gandhi Smruti Bhawan here on 28 December 2019.
“This is the 30th year of the literary events being organised by us. During this period, seminars and discussions will be held on the literature and we will also host stage shows,” eminent poet and Chandrabhaga secretary Sridev said.
He further stated that it was the silver jubilee year for the book fair at the event this year.
“We have also been hosting the national-level inter-college multilingual drama competition for 13 years, besides the art workshop-cum-exhibition that is running into its 17th year in 2019,” he stated.
According to the organisers, around 30 publishing houses have reserved their stalls, while 12 colleges across the state have registered for the competitions that would be played every evening at the Gandhi Smruti Bhawan auditorium.
