The cultural evening captivated the entire audience with enthralling dances odissi and mangalcharan (9 avatars of Durga), followed by breathtaking Gotipua (a beautiful mix of odissi with martial arts, wherein men dressed as women performs to impress Lord Shiva) and a very refreshing & fun filled sambhalpuri dance.
