9th Rongtheang Fest held


The 9th Rongtheang Fest’2011 was held on October 28 and 29, 2011 at Serhongkup, Rongtheang, Diphu. The event was a big success and concluded with a peaceful note. The theme of the festival for this year was “Youth for Peace & Progressive”. The various event like Nokbe Kekat (Marathon Race), Kengdongdang, Bathali Keap, Sansuri (Tug of War), Mir Kerim (Flower Arrangement), Poem Recitation, Rongtheang Beats, Hon Ke-Jeng (Spinning), Simlir (Painting Competition), Open Air Dance Competition, Inter-School Quiz Competition and Cultural show, perform by various local Traditional Troupes were organized. The events saw a large number of participants.


Rongtheang Klimsomar Club (RKC), offers heartfelt thanks to all our well-wishers, donors, sponsors, and associate media partners for their help in the grand success of the festival. We hope of greater success in the coming years.


The Rongtheang Fest is a Village festival, held every year at Rongtheang village in Diphu. It is a grand festival in this district. The importance of Rongtheang Fest is paramount today, especially at this juncture in Assam history, where gaps are increasing in the social fabric of the State. The Festival has become far more significant for the cause of unity and peace among all.


As a village festival that has witnessed the participation of different tribes and communities, it is hoped people elsewhere take a leaf from the Rongtheang Fest and the people of Rongtheang Village about inter-culture and inter-faith bonding.





Cheratin Teron
President, RKC.
