Cherry Blossom Mao Festival held today in Manipur

AIR
In Manipur, the Cherry Blossom Mao Festival was held today at Senapati district marking the beginning of pink season in the district. Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh graced the function virtually due to the pandemic.
 
The Mao area of Senapati district in Manipur is known for Cherry Blossom, a plant which is popularly known as Sakura in Japan. The Manipur government started organizing the festival every year from 2017 onward. However this year, the authority decided to scale down the festival due to COVID-19 pandemic.
 
The festival which featured the picturesque landscape of Mao town adorned with beautiful Cherry Blossom flowers was streamed live from 2 pm on various social media platforms and the programs consisted of traditional dances and special ballet.
 
Addressing the viewers worldwide from the CM Secretariat in Imphal, the Chief Minister expressed hope that the virtual event would give hope and inspiration to the viewers around the world during this difficult situation. He also said that Cherry Blossom Festival in the coming years could be an international event and the State Government is planning to invite delegations from countries like Japan.
