Talking to Asam Times, local resident said,” we are not upset at all after the authorities banned the bulbul fight. That’s not all for us to showcase. We have lots more of the proud of.”
“Yea, I did my best to train participate in the traditional bird fight. But only to be disappointed after the event was abandoned halfway after so much preparation for the same. I free the bords as soon as I came to confirm the ban. Now we have this function and procession to coompensate the loss,” said Mohendra Kalita.
