“We are Wearing Naga Traditional Mekhelas for Our Cultural Sunday in Pune”~ Aien

“In this photo, my friends and I are wearing Naga traditional mekhelas. It was our cultural Sunday at our Naga Christian Fellowship (NCF) in Pune. We love wearing mekhelas, so it was a great opportunity to showcase our lovely traditional attires. I am wearing an “Ao Naga” mekhela, which is usually blue and red in color (we do have it in other designs and colors). I got this mekhela from home. Most of the Naga students usually pack at least one traditional mekhela from home whenever they go outside Nagaland for their studies. Currently, I am pursuing my Bachelor of Arts at Abeda College in Pune.” ~ Aien from Nagaland ย [Buy Naga Traditional Mekhela on R&L Shop] Check out more on how young fashionable folks from Northeast India wear their traditional Mekhelasย and Accessoriesย [Shop Naga Traditional Jewellery and Mekhelas on R&L Shop]
