Ten-day World Folk Day festivities held in Telangana
Ten-day folk art activities were held across Telangana state that began on August 22 to celebrate the World Folk Day as I learned on my visit to Hyderabad on September 2.

The folk performing art events were held all the districts of the state. The grand finale of the event was held in the state capital in which thousands of folk artists took part through group performances. 

The observance has spread in the tribal areas and is being seen as a way of preserving and showcasing the tribal folk arts. In many places and destinations,  the local artforms and performances are becoming the part of tour packages. 

Also, the Telangana Information and Technology Associaton (TITA) organised an event called Folk-A-Thon for the the techies in city to showcase their talent in folkarts. Other folk artists were invited to perform on the occasion to get closer to the local culture  and folk traditions. 

However, in Rajasthan, FIFA festival is celebrated in Jodhpur in October month every year which has been endorsed by UNESCO and spported by the Rolling Stones.
