CHAPCHAR KUT THLALAK 2018 - LAWRKHAWM

Chapchar Kut is celebrated in the first week of March. It marks the beginning of spring when the nature starts playing with colours. This heralds the festive mood in the lives of Mizos and they prepare themselves to celebrate Chapchar Kut, the festival of happiness. It is considered to be the most spelndid traditional festival of Mizoram and is celebrated with great grandeur and splendor.

This festival is one of the oldest festivals of Mizoram. During this season, farmers cut bamboo forests to make place for jhum or seasonal farming. This is the season, in which they wait for the chopped bamboo heaps to dry under sun before being burnt, and this process is termed as Chapchar. While, Kut means festival, as the farmers have nothing else to do during the season.

People wear colourful traditional clothes and hats made from beads and parrots' feathers. In this festival they don't wear any shoes in olden days. A traditional bamboo dance is also performed where only women participate while the men sit on the ground and beat the bamboos against each other which is called Bamboo dance or Cheraw.
