This Instagram Page Is Connecting The Northeast Youth Through Their Traditional Attires

We recently came across this beautiful Instagram Page, The Voice Of North East India, which is actively working towards promoting the rich culture of Northeast India, through its traditional attires and the beautiful stories behind them.

Northeast India, is known for its natural beauty, diversity, rare and unique wildlife, people, and culture. Unfortunately, it’s a lonely planet, an unexplored paradise, plagued by issues such as youth migration, a higher number of HIV+ cases, poor living standard, etc. The biggest reason behind this all is the negligence of the government towards resolving the armed conflict that has been going on for decades now. It has not hampered the growth and development of the Northeastern states but has led to the youth of Northeast to lose its confidence in their homeland, succumbing them to migrate to other parts of the country.

In a grim scenario like this, the initiative of ‘The Voice Of North East India’ to encourage people in Northeast to share their photos in traditional attires, serves a bigger purpose than you can think.

Such encouragement will help the Northeastern youth to connect with their roots and understand their culture better. Also, it will help in reflecting the diverse culture of Northeast to those people in our country who fail to register Northeast as a part of our country and most often than not are racist towards Northeastern people.

Here’re few of the pictures of men and women in traditional attires of their area:
