Pritambar Singh

Chak-Umba.. First solid food for Appu. In the far past, the ceremony would mark and determine the way of living for the baby as an adult. Varied items, including grains, soil, weapon, books,gold and money are placed in front for the baby to choose. Though, not relevant in current times, the tradition is still followed for fun..

    The picture brings out the innocence and purity in a child and above all, Chak umba is such a beautiful tradition of Meiteis when the child is fed the first grains of rice.
