In nagaland it is call as chavang kut. In assam it is also call as chavang kut. Why only in imphal it is call ‘KUT’. Kut only doesnt make sense to me. Kut means celebration, something has to be added chavang than it will make sense. I wonder why it is aways written as KUT only. I hope and pray that this coming nov.1 Chavang kut will be written in the big back drop.
