I attended my first Hornbill festival in Nagaland this year. I stayed there from 2nd to 9th Dec though the festival was from 1st to 10th. In 2006 I went to Kohima during Xmass celebration for the first time. After a span of 9 years,this time I noticed a sea of change in this wonderful state of Nagaland.New roads, hotels, shops, restaurants have been built. Hundreds of buses, taxis started plying in the smooth surfaced roads.New schools & colleges have come up. I had awesome experience in these 8 days of my stay in the hilly region also called Switzerland of India.
Hornbill festival is a wonderful blend of heritage & contemporary culture.The evening program included a modern rock competition attended by several international,national & local bands, held in the I.G. Stadium, Kohima.While in the forenoon & afternoon sessions, a very colorful tribal carnival was held. All the 16 tribes of the state participated here. There were song,dance,different local games,wrestling competition organised flawlessly.The fair was held in the Naga Heritage Village Kissama situated 10 km away from Kohima city. The massive fair ground had numerous stalls, shops merchandising both food items of tribal,national & international cuisine, tribal costumes,jewelry, artifacts,spices,books etc. All the 16 major tribes had set individual pavillions depicting their own tribal culture.
Last year both President & PM of India attended the festival. This year the C.M of Nagaland inaugurated it & many distinguished dignitaries including hony judges from different Highcourts attended it.
