      • Thanks for the comment…Frist of all not the only piece of Heritage,but certainly worth knowing…India is big very big..but we Indians never realised that fact…I alone certainly cannot bring out all the heritage India holds to the world,there are billions of Indians and I believe everyone should contribute…And My dear friend the Blog is about bringing out the beauty,culture and traditions of NE India n hence the post…Don’t u think NE India has Heritage which I can show off to this world,correct me if I m worng,Remember Every part of India is full of Heritage and should be brought infornt of the world and every Indian should support in any way they can…Never expected to get such an comment from an MBA Grad…That makes me beleive we Indians still lacks a lot of things… 😦

  1. The festivals are very colorful and the people are very warm and are ready to teach you their traditions, I still have some gamchas given to be by some people from Assam about ten years ago. A nice post looking forward to the remaining states as I haven’t been there and haven’t learnt much about them either.
