About The DVD

Meghalaya is a beautiful state surrounded by greenery, smiling sunshine, rainfalls and beautiful hills. The land is inhabited largely by tribes. Garo, Khasi and Jaintiya are three types of tribes in Meghalaya having a glorious and unique history, customs, rituals and culture. They are geographically located in garo hills, Khasi hills and Jaintiya hills respectively as the names depict. Mostly the Garo tribes adopted Christianity yet they kept up their traditional customs and culture whereas Khasi on other hand believes in their own culture and traditional democracy and Jaintiya tribe share their own unique traditions. These tribes have different traditions of marriages like according to Garo’s tradition bridegroom has to move to his wife’s place after marriage.

The documentary encompasses their culture, customs, tradition and rituals. They mainly cultivate beetle nuts, and this area is the major supplier of beetle nuts in whole of India and Bangladesh. “WANGLAS” is the major festival which is celebrated after the harvest of crops. Shilling is the capital city of the state which is also known as the ‘Hub of Educational Institutes’. Today, the communities have diluted their traditional customs with new and modern customs but still their way of living and life remains the same.
