An annual week long extravaganza full of thrill and motion day in day out !  DSC_0282 It is said that Nagaland is diverse in culture and life in Nagaland is one big festival ! 20 lakhs strong Naga people are by nature, fun lovers and carefree souls. I had to believe this when I saw them together, moving on beats of drums on a perfect coordination, decked up in colorful traditional attires. They represented vibrancy, happiness, solidarity, youth and beauty.DSC_0491DSC_0509DSC_0518DSC_0267 The attires, the headgears, the energy, music, dances, songs, food, ambience, tradition, culture, entertainment, positivity all could be witnessed in and around tribal huts….. The name is ‘Hornbill Festival’ ( also known as Wood stock of North-East India) helds between 1st dec. to 10th dec. every year at Kisama Heritage Village, 10 kms away from Kohima, the capital of Nagaland.

    1. Thank you so much. Though it was not a reply to the prompt still I shared it. Today I had to go for official dinner so I linked my today’s afternoon post on the grid. When the prompt appeared we were in the mess, that was all I could do. Yes, I enjoyed so much in the festival.

  1. Thank you for sharing a glimpse of Nagaland here. I would like to visit Eastern India some day but till then will enjoy your pictures.
