 Folk Dance from Himachal Pradesh All Set to Create a World Record

A folk dance in Himachal Pradesh, known as Kullu Natti is all set to create a world record this month. Over 13,000 artistes will perform the folk dance during the Kullu Dussehra celebrations to highlight the message of saving the girl child.

Deputy Commissioner Rakesh Kanwar said, "The Guinness Book of World Record's office in London has given its approval to monitor the performance of more than 13,000 folk dancers during the Kullu Dussehra celebrations. This attempt would be the largest voluntary participation in an event at one point of time. With this Kullu Natti is all set to enter the Guinness Book of World Record as the largest folk dance in the world."

In 2014, over 8,760 artistes performed the folk dance at the Kullu Dussehra festivities and entered the Limca Book of Records.

Kanwar, the brain behind holding the folk dance, said, "The participants, this time both men and women, would take a pledge to work for the cause of the girl child. More than 13,000 participants have registered for the dance. They will be coming to Dhalpur grounds on October 26, dressed in traditional attire to make this world record and to showcase the rich cultural heritage of Kullu. Since there is no prior category or record related to the folk dance, any number of participation will create the record, but our aim is to make a record that is difficult to break. The mascot of 'Pride of Kullu', a girl in traditional dress, designed by designer Gitesh Gupta has been launched."

The District Dussehra Committee, the organizer of the week long festivities, will now launch merchandise to promote the cause of the girl child. The week long Kullu Dussehra festivities will begin on October 22, 2015, and will conclude on October 29, 2015. Kullu Dussehra is a centuries-old festival and the celebrations begin on 'Vijaya Dashami', the day when the festivities end in rest of the country.
