The shared narratives of Bhutan and India, and of mountain regions everywhere, expand the space for insights across cultures and geographies,” festival co-director and celebrated author Namita Gokhale said in a statement.
Major themes of this year include natural history and environment, business and leadership, fashion, magic and mentalism, food, spirituality and Buddhism.According to the organizers a special inaugural ceremony will be held in Thimphu, on August 24.
