DONGKAMUKAM, Nov 5: On Sunday evening, EM KAAC Madhurium Lekthe inaugurated the 27th edition of the 100 Drums Wangala Festival at the Rajendra Memorial LP School playground in Bithung, approximately 10 km from Dongkamukam. Organized by the Karbi Anglong A’chik Cultural Society (KAACS), the event commenced with an inaugural prayer led by Fr CA John, the Parish Priest of Satgaon Parish.

Lekthe commenced his address by acknowledging the significant progress in the development of the rich heritage and composite culture within the community. Reflecting on the uniqueness of the previous year’s 26th Wangala Festival held in his constituency, he highlighted the distinctiveness of this year’s celebration. He emphasized the cosmopolitan nature of the twin hills districts, where various tribes, besides Karbis, uphold their distinct identities, fostering a harmonious coexistence.

Expressing well-wishes for the bright future of the tribe, Lekthe extended gratitude to the organizers for the invitation to the inaugural gathering.

Every year, the Garos of Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong commemorate this significant festival from November 5th to 7th in honor of their god of giving, ‘Misi Saljong’. A total of 25 troupes from Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong have reportedly registered to partake in the festivities.
