Mysuru, September 6:- The state government has decided to observe a traditional Dasara. The district administration has made preparations to organise unique programmes to make the festivities special.
“If the efforts of the district administration pay off, the band of Indian Air Force (IAF) and air warrior drill can be witnessed during the Dasara. Air Force band, air petal show, slippering, sky-diving and other events will be organised during the Dasara. Among the five events, Air Force band will be held during Jamboo Savari and air warrior drill during Torchlight Parade. The remaining three events will be held at the parade ground on October 14,” said Deputy Commissioner Abhiram G Sankar here on Thursday.
“These programmes were missed at the last minute last year. We have sent a request for these programmes in July itself and are in constant contact with IAF officials. They have responded to us positively and have expressed their readiness to hold all the five events. The office of the Defence Minister has also given its consent. Hope people will get a chance to witness adventure activities in Dasara 2018,” he added. (MR/KS).
