A three-day cultural fair featuring traditions of the regional culture ended at the Barisal Central Shaheed Minar on Saturday.

The fair was organised by district administration to promote regional culture, tradition and heritage.

A huge crowd enjoyed presentation of traditional performing art forms and literature at the cultural function featuring lathi-khela (tricks with sticks), recitations of poems of the regional poets, punthi, folk songs like zari, sari, royani, dance and jatra.

Royani, a traditional performing art form of the region that glorifies goddess Manasha though music, dance and narratives, and Lathi-Khela (tricks with sticks) were the major sources of entertainment displayed during the festival.

The Lathi-Khela was performed for more than two-hour by 20-member Tiger Lathi Khela Daal from Kulchar village under Chandkati union of Babuganj upazila.

‘The rural sport lathi khela even in near past used by the local landlords to curb their opponents, grab  and control over land and properties, but these days it’s a great source of entertainment,’ the TLD team leader told New Age.

Barisal City Corporation Mayor Shawkat Hossain Hiron leading a colorful rally from Aswani Kumar Hall to Shaheed Minar inaugurated the fair Thursday and ASM Arifur Rahman, deputy commissioner of Barisal, presided over the inaugural and closing functions of the fair.
