competitive one year and travelling the next. The 4th edition of the
festival, held in 2007, attracted 275 entries from 18 Indian states and
18 foreign countries. Considering that 2007 was the inaugural year for

Madhya Pradesh, Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, Ranchi in Jharkhand, Lucknow
in Uttar Pradesh and Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh. Over 80,000 people
