Shillong/ Kohima – The northeast is home to a number of tribes, each with their unique festivals. Recently, in Nagaland and Meghalaya, people came together to celebrate harvest festivals with gaiety and enthusiasm.

A traditional festival of the Khasis, the annual Nongkrem Dance, was celebrated with enthusiasm in Meghalaya. The five-day long festival is celebrated during autumn at Smit, the capital of the Khasi state of Hima Khyrim.

It is celebrated to appease the Goddess Ka Blei Synshar for a bumper harvest and prosperity of the people. Young men and women, dressed in traditional attires, perform various dances.

“ This festival is basically to understand the problems of our people and also, this festival is organised for the welfare of the state of Hima Khyrim,”  said Pabok Deingdoh,  a local.

Nagaland also bore a festive look as people from the Sumi tribe came together to celebrate their traditional post-harvest festival Ahuna, with much enthusiasm.

The festival is a celebration of the season’s harvest and prayers for good fortune in the future.

The Chekiye Village in Dimapur hosted the celebrations, which witnessed a large gathering of people. The tribal dances enthralled the people.

The celebration of festivals brings together people from different walks of life thereby fostering unity and brotherhood among them.
