Karnataka-Manipur Interstate Cultural Festival 17th to 19th January 2020
About The Festival “Culture” is a cultural exchange event organized to provide an opportunity to explore differences and similarities of world colorful people’s, diverse cultures, histories, heritage, traditions, customs, beliefs, societies, languages, food and much more. And we believed that such opportunities will make peoples to view the world with a different lens. Hence, it will provide an alternative perception and it broadens one’s horizons and increases the tendency of acceptance.
The main idea about our event is diversity and inclusion to be developed so that the focus would shift towards how diversity is able to enrich human learning and experience, so-called ‘Unity in Diversity’. Specially our nation's India is the most multi-diverse culture in the world and we focus to develop a platform to understand and aware of diverse cultures among the peoples and exchange every possible benefit towards one another.
Cultural exchanges allow us to experience exotic cultures across the world, but at the same time, it provides an opportunity to understand our own cultures and traditions. Hence, these opportunities act as widows of self-awareness and bringing all of us into humanity, love, peace and harmony among everyone.
Directly experiencing something is the best way to learn. Therefore, our event “cultures” a cultural exchange event that will allow anyone to experience other cultures by living and learning about languages, customs, traditions, lifestyles, food, social structures and heritage of the world.

Diversity is beautiful. It is the pre-requisite of unity. Unity, instead of uniformity, creates tolerance, acceptance and flexibility. To attain unity, it is necessary to appreciate diversity.

When one experiences other cultures, view the world with another lens, accepts the “others”, one understands the very essence of diversity which is the first step towards attaining unity.
