On this occasion, Chief Minister Shri Baghel congratulated all the members of Bastar Dussehra Committee and the administration for the longest running Dussehra in the world. He said that Bastar Dussehra has many specialties, due to which people from all over the country and abroad come to Bastar every year to participate in it.The way the government-administration and the people of the entire Bastar division make this 75-day long event a success with solidarity and mutual cooperation, that is also the specialty of Bastar Dussehra. Describing this culture and traditions as necessary to keep people united, he described it as the biggest strength. He said that the concern to preserve our culture and tradition was also a big reason behind the formation of Chhattisgarh state. Today we are working in this direction with priority. In the last three years, many important steps have been taken to save the culture of Bastar as well as the entire Chhattisgarh. Earlier, there was no official holiday in folk festivals like Teeja-Pora, Karma Jayanti, World Tribal Day, Chhath festival. Our government started holidays so that the people of Chhattisgarh can enjoy their festivals properly. Through these festivals, our traditions pass from one generation to the next. Describing the culture of worshiping deities in Bastar as special, he said that Bastar is the only place, where along with worshiping the deities, people spend their whole life with them. They eat, sing, dance with their Gods and also get angry with the Gods. He said that there is a need for the country and the world to know and understand this culture of Bastar. He said that only to preserve their culture, Devgudis and Ghotuls are being conserved in Bastar division. No paucity of money will be allowed in the development and beautification of Devgudis. The primitive culture of Bastar is discussed all over the world, but people still do not know about it very well. We have started organizing the National Tribal Dance Festival only to introduce the whole world to the tribal culture here. In the year 2019, a grand event of National Tribal Dance Festival was organized in Raipur. More than 2500 delegates from 25 states of the country participated in it. Simultaneously artists from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Belarus, Maldives, Thailand and Uganda also exhibited their art. The event lasted for three days. This event could not be held in the year 2020 due to the Corona crisis. But now the situation is better, so this year also preparations are being made for a grand event of the National Tribal Dance Festival. Our public representatives are distributing invitations by traveling all over the country. This time the National Tribal Dance Festival will be held in Raipur from 28 to 30 October. Tribal artists from across the country will also exhibit their art this time. He also invited everyone to participate in the tribal dance festival on this occasion.
