Dear Shri Mohapatra
I am extremely happy to learn about Global Theatre Festival and 12th National Drama / Dance / Music competition to be held at Cuttack to be organized by Theatre Movement, Cuttack. I understand that more than 75 groups including foreign groups and approximately 2500 artists are expected to participate in this grand event. By any standard this event is second to none other festivals being organized in India. The credit goes to you, your team, local administration, and your contacts all over the country. I am pretty sure that it will be a grand success, would inspire artists to participate in your festival and also to organize such festivals at their place, would motivate young boys and girls to opt for performing arts, may not be as a career which would preserve, protect and promote cultural heritage of India. No doubt Odisha would be a great beneficial besides making great contribution in the Theatre Movement.
I wish all the success.

That is why you act and react. you are the only creature who created the THEATRE when you are not even civilized. That's why you coined the word CULTURE. Whether you are BLACK, YELLOW or WHITE; you communicate amongst yourself, this is continuing from time immemorial in PEACE, LOVE & WAR. This is "Unity amongst diversity" Let's celebrate the Movement "Be Happy New Year".
