India Post and Russian Post released a set of 2 stamp jointly to celebrate 70 years of diplomatic relations on 26th October 2017. The stamps depict Bhavai dance of Rajasthan, India and Beryozka dance of Russia.
One of the most famous Russian folk dance is the "Berezka" dance. This dance represents the synchronous movement of dancers and the simultaneous performance of a choral song. Characteristic elements, smooth movements in a circle, a chain (one after another), like a snake in two lines, rotations around each other or in pairs around common centers in groups, short and frequent steps that create the impression of slipping with the dancer holding handkerchiefs or branches of birch.
Bhavai is a popular folk theater form in the Indian states of Rajasthan and Gujarat. Men play music, while a woman, dressed in a bright, colorful costume with numerous ornaments, performs a dance, holding 8-9 pitchers on her head. The dance of Bhavai is performed at various festivals and weddings.
