Tyisam Chisam festival called off

From Our Correspondent

Tura: The Garo Students’ Union has called for a dawn-to-dusk all South Garo Hills bandh on December 13th and 14th of December demanding transfer of its deputy commissioner and thereby leading to the cancellation of the much sought after Tyisam Chisam festival that was to begin on the second day of the strike.

“We are compelled to call for a 5 AM to 5 PM entire district bandh on the 13th and 14th to demand for the removal of Deputy Commissioner Dr BDR Tiwari,” said GSU leader Prosper R Marak.

Tyisam festival more commonly known as the Chisam (beach) festival had preparations to draw crowds of several thousand people from both Garo Hills and beyond as a number of tourists from outside the State had given their confirmation for the colourful festival’s participation in savoring the rich cultural heritage and traditional cuisine of the Garos living in pristine south Garo Hills.

The Tyisam festival is a unique feature because it is one of the few carnivals in north east where events such as beach volleyball, angling for fresh water fish and boat racing are held in a big way drawing several thousand people to the fiesta.
