Chapchar Kut, the most important traditional festival of the Mizoram people was celebrated across the state and also in the Mizo-inhabited areas in the neighbouring states. Dressed in traditional attire, exuberant dancers danced to the tune of typical music and songs while popular Mizo dances including Cheraw, Sarlamkai, Chheihlam and Khuallam were performed by different cultural troupes.
Well-known singers and pop groups also performed in different places where the Kut was celebrated including the Assam Rifles ground in Aizawl, the main place of the Kut celebrations. In Aizawl, state state home minister R Lalzirliana was the ‘Kut pa’ or father of the festival, while state Art and Culture minister R Romawia was the ‘Kut thlengtu’ or host of the festival.
The Chapchar Kut was organised jointly by the state art and culture department and the Young Mizo Association.
