Saptarang Sevabhavi Sanstha organises various competitions for dance and singing all over India and the winners are given a chance to perform in foreign lands.  This year the entire team of winners from Maharashtra, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and other Indian states were brought to Hong Kong to host a wonderful event of Indian art and culture at Kwun Tong Auditorium.

The two-hour scintillating Bharathanatyam, Kathak, semi-Classical, folk performances by young dancers had the audience awestruck. Dr, Bharat Jethwani, Festival Director was the host for the event and ensured that the audience enjoyed the entire show to the fullest.  Thanks to Mrs Roopa Kiran, Solo Bharathanatyam performer of Hong Kong who coordinated with the team to perform in Hong Kong.
