Sirish Festival 2019
The Tea Tribe forms an important proportion of population of Assam, and are scattered across the Brahmaputra Valley. APPL Foundation’s endeavor to promote and preserve their intangible culture and heritage has transpired an annual “Sirish™” (A Sanskrit word means soul within the body) festival. This has given the community a platform to showcase their distributed fragments of performing arts, literature as well as sports.
“The Sirish™ festival, which is the only integrated festival honouring the momentous contribution of the tea tribe community to the state of Assam is a watershed moment for us at APPL Foundation. We expect that all future editions of this annual festival will provide for not only national but also international recognition to the members of this great community”
-Ranjit Barthakur, Chairman, APPL Foundation
