Beh DeinKhlam

Read More


  • Behdeinkhlam is a very happy and boisterous affair and usually coupled with rainy weather
  • A series of religious rites is performed by the Daloi (chief). During the Behdienkhlam Cultural Festival Tour, young men make a symbolic gesture of driving away of the evil spirit, plague and disease by beating of the roof of every house with bamboo poles
  • The climax of the celebration is the fight for a large undressed beam by two groups of people in opposition to each other. This leads to the heavy beam being dragged across a muddy ditch called Wah-eit-nar. A lot of horse play enters into this part of the event, when mud is smeared by the participants on each other. 
  • On the last day, in the afternoon people would gather in a place called Aitnar and both young and old would dance to the tunes of the pipes and drums. The dancers are highly emotional when tall-decorated structures called rots and a wooden post-called khnongs would be brought into the pool. It is desirable that there should be rain on the day of the festival. The highlight of this famous festival  is when people dressed up in their best attire converge in a place called Mynthong to witness a game played similar to football, called dad-lawakor. The game is played with a wooden ball between the Northerners and the Southerners. The side wins the match by putting the ball on the other side and the victory would signify that in the following year there would be a bumper harvest in that particular region. In the evening there would be a lot of funfair and merry making.
