Dancing in Shiyong

Before the long journey back to Delhi, I stuck around in Shiyong to see the inauguration of a new community center built with the help of the Assam Rifles, unit of the Indian Army.   Anxious to boost their image in the region the Assam Rifles had built the community center as a public relations move, and now several military VIPs would descend on the village for photo ops and publicity.  To entertain the military brass the village had organized a program of traditional dance by the women of the village.  An opportunity for me to get even more images of Konyak dance and traditional dress than I already had.
