On the day of the Bhogali Bihu, the meji ghor used to be lit up by the oldest one in the village, Koka and everyone used to be at their best. The meji in my village used to be in competition with the meji of the adjoining village and we used to make it as tall as it could get, piled with firewood, broad at the base tapering towards the top. And while burning, the bamboo used to make sounds like the bursting of crackers, followed by loud guffaws of cheers and laughing by everyone else

Mekhela Chador is a traditional attire worn by women in Assam. The bottom portion draped from the waist downwards, is called the mekhela. The top portion is the chador which is a long piece of cloth which has one end tucked into the upper portion of the mekhela above the belly button and the rest is draped around the chest similarly like a saree. One of the most hassle-free garment, mekhela chador looks as elegant and stylish as a saree once it is draped.
