India’s High Commissioner to Fiji Vishvas Sapkal has urged more young people to  participates cultural activities to help them better understand their culture.

Mr Sapkal said this during the rangoli competition at Fiji Sevashram Sangha headquarters in Suva on Sunday.

“I would like to have more participants, especially young children, to engage in such activities so our young generations can have better knowledge about our culture.

“This year was my first time witnessing this competition in Fiji and it was amazing to see a little more than half of the participants were children.

“I am sure that with more competitions, the numbers will increase in the future,” Mr Sapkal said.

“Rangoli has its own kind of language which takes a lot of dedication and efforts to draw the designs and colour them.

“It certainly not an easy task but it was mesmerizing to see everyone engage in this activity, especially the children.

“The rangolis were brilliant and it showcased beautiful messages in the art,” Mr Sapkal said.

He acknowledged the Fiji Sevashram Sangha for hosting the competition.
