    Hi Thien,

    Thanks for posting this news on Dragon Dance Show 2009 in old Chinatown.

    It would be great if could post some pictures and a few video clippings of the activities after the event so that all Indian Chinese currently living abroad can get a glimpse of what transpired that day in Kolkata.

    Hi Thien,
    I have been wandering to attend chinese dragon show. I love photography and very eager to take some snaps of the dragon dance and the colorful chinese new year celebration in Tangra. It will be a great help if you can inform when and where the chinese community perform the dragon dance in the streets of Tangra during the new year’s day. I live in south kolkata and would visit China town to take the photographs. take care.
