Me-dam-me-fi observed in Delhi

The members of Ahom community in Delhi observed Me-dam-me-fi in the National capital with traditional Tai-Ahom worshiping of the Ancestors. The Bailung, priest of the tai-Ahom community, performed the age-old ritual of remembering the forefathers for peace in the land, prosperity of the inhabitants.


A large number of participants joined the function despite a very short notice of two days. It was also an occasion for non-Ahom associates also to have a peek into the traditional Tai-Ahom culture. The function ended with a grand feast. A committee was formed to observe the function annually with Gauri Kanta Handique as the President.
