Nagaland is called the land of festivals. The tribal people there are always busy celebrating something or the other. The above photograph has been contributed by Pankaj Tibrewal. It shows one of warrior dances performed during the Hornbill Fesitival, the largest celebration of Naga culture and history, which occurs during the first week of December each year. It is one of those events which you cannot ignore while in India.
