I distinctly remember how preparations for Uruka coinciding with when Sankraanti is celebrated in rest of the country, would start many days prior to the actual day. Pukhurixisaa in our village, meaning emptying the pond of water used to be our favorite. Fishing nets would be used to catch the fish in the pond and thereafter, the villagers would in pairs hold ropes tied to either side of a large tin and drain out the water from the pond. It was fun to watch fishes of all sizes appear magically out of the pond.

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.
