The Bamboo Forum of India celebrated the day under the theme ‘Bamboo for sustainable development goals’ at the Lamyanba Shanglen in Palace Compound. Bamboo Day is celebrated every year to increase awareness about bamboo globally and to encourage efforts to protect our natural resources. India has about 136 species of bamboo and 54 of them are found in Manipur. A lovely souvenir was also released at the event.
