This was a dance ballet to be performed by 50 artistes of the Sangeetha Nrithya Kalasala of Thirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam that would depict the history of Tirumala and a variety of `poojas' performed at the temple.
The federation that had chapters in all the countries worked for the promotion of Telugu literature and culture.
It also provided economical assistance and training to artistes and artisans who practiced the folk arts.
To give a boost to such artisans and to give the local people a whiff of the flavour of Andhra Pradesh, the federation had planned a two-day fair as well, as part of the celebrations.
This would be held at the Ramakrishna Kalyana Mandapam.
A number of stalls containing handicrafts, jewellery and food from the State would be displayed.
The exhibition that would be open to the public from Monday would display wares from all parts of Andhra Pradesh.
