What I wore - Unlike last year this year, I wore A Red color Mekhela chadar (An assamese traditional outfit) with pink bird motifs and a pink border. I teamed it up with a beige blazer and belt that gives a contemporary touch and also helps the outfit to stay tightly fit together for a longer time. I added it up with some Assamese silver jewelry.
