Monipuri Ras Mela at Moulvibazar

Ras Mela is the principal festival and fair of the Manipuris. It is also observed by some Hindus at different places. The Moha Ras Lila festival of the Manipuri community of Kamalganj upazila in Moulvibazar district concluded on Monday. Thousands of people thronged the festival venue and enjoyed the nightlong programme. The Rass lila (IAST rāsa-līlā) (Hindi: रास लीला) or Rass dance is part of the traditional story of Krishna described in Hindu scriptures such as the Bhagavata Purana and literature such as the Gita Govinda, where he dances with Radha and her sakhis. The Indian classical dance of Kathak evolved from the 'Raslila of Braj and Manipuri Classical Dance' (Vrindavana) also known as Natwari Nritya, which was revived in 1960s by Kathak dancer, Uma Sharma.
