IHM Srinagar, IHM Chennai Conduct Online Programme To Raise Cultural Awareness

In keeping with the spirit of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’, IHM Srinagar and IHM Chennai recently conducted an online programme titled ‘Fascinating Folk Dances of Tamil Nadu, Jammu & Kashmir & Ladakh’.

The ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’ initiative was launched by the Prime Minister back in October, 2015.
