CULTURE - FESTIVALS CELEBRATED IN THE RIVER ISLAND OF MAJULI

AMROK (MISHING)
In the month of Bhadon/Ahin (August/ September), the Mishings observe a festival called 'Amrok'. Every household observes this festival where food is prepared out of harvested crop and is offered to the ancestors. Another dancing event called Porag takes place after the harvest. The neighbouring villages are invited to take part in the celebrations which lead to dancing and beating of drums. Though initially the event looks competitive it finally ends in harmony.
