Roots and Leisure Goes Behind the Scenes

 

The Roots and Leisure team visited the venue (The Heritage, Kohima), the night before the event to get a glimpse of the preparations, and to catch up with the organizing team – the brains and muscles of the event, and looked around, watching in awe of how this event came to life.

We could see the hard work put into this, but they looked so happy to be creating this world of fantasy and bringing it to life – see the months of planning and preparations being born. Although this took such time and effort, the organizing team smiled and laughed among themselves, enjoying every moment, just like we would on the days of the event.
