MIG TV brings you yet another issue of our monthly video-magazine, Colours of India.
We start our journey amidst Christmas celebrations in New Delhi, where the festivities were centred in the Sacred Heart Cathedral Church – the biggest church in the city.
Continuing the festivities, we head to the shores of Odisha for the international Sand Art Festival, at the Chandrabhaga Beach in Puri district. Sand art artists from various Indian cities and countries like Mexico, Russia, Germany, Spain, Sri Lanka, Canada, Ghana, and Singapore participated in the event.
To experience the rich history in Delhi, we steer towards Humayun’s Tomb, which is the tomb of the second Mughal emperor Humayun. It was designed in line with Mughal architecture to house his mortal remains. The site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993.
Moving towards rural West Bengal, we end our journey with Baul musicians. These musicians live in rural areas of West Bengal in India and also in Bangladesh. One of the highlights is their musical instruments that include the ektara, a simple one-stringed instrument, and a drum called dubki.
MIG TV wishes everyone a very Happy New Year! See you, next month, with more such hidden jewels from India.
