The evening of Day 5 featured two traditional “Nataks” or plays, both centering on the court intrigues of the medieval period. The first play was set in Kumaoni, while the second in Garhwali.
Day 6 was attended by over 10,000 people owing to the various musical acts that set the crowds into a dancing frenzy.
Day 7 marked the end of the Mahotsav and involved a costume competition, honouring of those who made a substantial contribution to Uttarakhand, and of course several songs.
The outstanding professional photographer, Bhumesh Bharti, has been capturing the entire festival on film, so look for his photos in various upcoming publications.
