  1. What is the reason of changing Nishagandhi Dance festival dates to February and not like it was usually January 20-26?
    We came from Latvia to Kerala this year January and got disappointed because not able to enjoy classical dance…
    International flight must be booked 6 months in advance, but this announcement about the festival dates came two weeks before it starts…
