There was the demonstration of different newa culture and newa ruitals followed by newa people .Here are few pictures I captured by my n95 mobile on the first day of the festival.

I love the photos and scenery. Your n95 does a good job. I own a Wing and it does fairly good as long as your outside in good lighting.
