This is one of the striking features and vibrancy of Indian culture. U can find celebration as part of every stage of life. Birth, marraige, adolscence, death…. This Ambubachi the one of its kind mela is the biggest congregation of Shakthi Worshippers (Shakthi is an incarnation of mother earth) they are a cult of worshippers who believe in a rather fierce form of diety and follow stringent principles as part of their worship. This year atleast when i spoke to my friend in Assam (Shes a journolist as well as a lawyer Ms.Ana )she says there might be an estimated 3 to 4 lakh of devotees not just from North east but the whole of India as well as Bangladesh and parts of nepal, bhutan, burma and other neighbouring countries.
