Program opened with distinctive music 1400 played on Indian instruments (tablas, etc), which was repeated at times during the program. Imphal is in the extreme eastern part of India, near the Burmese border, giving it a more southerly path than other Indians, and therefore less auroral absorption. (bp-QCI)
