If one knows about the tradition of the indigenous tribes of Meghalaya, they would also know about the significance of their faith and their belief in mythological characters.
However, with the advent of modernisation, this belief and faith seems to have been over shadowed by science and the so-called ‘logical explanation of things’.
Interestingly, despite all the threats and challenges, the indigenous faith continues to thrive with the existence of some relics which even science cannot explain.
The perfect example for the same can be drawn from the depths of the Sacred Groves in Meghalaya.
It might sound scary, weird and mysterious. But the fact remains that till date, people don’t dare flout these sets of rules for their own benefits fearing punishment of all sorts from their God of the land –‘U Ba-sa Ryngkew’.
