The rituals, identity, and traditions of any state are very well represented by the dances & dresses worn by the people living there, and this is particularly the case for dances in Meghalaya forming an important part of its inhabitants: birth, marriage, annual festivals, etc. The Nongkrem dance is associated with the Leligious beliefs of the people of Khasi hills. locally named as “Ka Pomblang Nongrem”, which over the years has been popularly termed as Nongkrem dance. It is performed to appease the all-powerful Goddess Ka Blei Synshar for a rich bumper harvest and prosperity of the people. The festival is also called 'Ka Pomblang', meaning decapitation of goats, since they are sacrificed and offerings made to the ancestors.

Here this Dazzling doll of an attractive Meghalaya girl amazingly crafted with paper machie, is representing a group of the dancers - the young, married & unmarried girls including the children. Attired In a fascinated enchanting bright yellow golden costume., known as Jainsen heavily decorated with beautifully threaded colourful necklaces & pendants; Red Corals and Beads of varied sizes adding to the beauty of the necklace.
