The land of valleys, hills, lakes and rivers, Mizoram, is known for its warm hospitality. Mizoram is one of the Seven Sister States of the northeastern part of India. The dresses worn by the Mizos apparently resemble the dresses worn by the other states of northeastern India. Like the other traditional dress of the Northeast India, the designs and patterns of the dresses of this state is evident of the ethnic heritage. The traditional dress for the Mizo girls during festivals and occasion, especially weddings are gorgeous Puanchei, which is known for its vibrant colors. Some other traditional attires worn during the festivals are the hand-woven cotton Ngotekherh, which is similar to the former and goes well with Puanchei and Kawrchei.
In this picture the friends are highly educated and working as project directors, subject matter specialists in different field of Science under Krishi Bigyan Kendra (KVK) at different parts of Mizoram. They were very nice, kind and showed nice hospitality during the Inaugural programme of our Training programme conducted at Mizoram during 1-3 Feb, 2009.
