Colors of Assam

Assam and North-East India are known for its natural beauty, but the lesser known thing to the tourists and outside world is the rich, yet very diversive culture. The culture here is a true assimilation of the mainland Indian culture and the neighbour countries like Thailand, Myanmar, Tibbet, etc. The tens of tribes endemic to the region showcase very different culture among themselves. The only simlarity between them is the rich and colorful tradition in hand crafting, food and believes. Apart from the tribes the Brahmaputra valley people has a very open and liberal religious belief due to the vaishnavite movement in the 15th century and also the sufi influneces contemporary to it.
