Assamese women are out-and-out gorgeous. Not even a trace of doubt on that. But, what is it that makes an Assamese woman stand out in a cluttered crowd? What is it that augments the beauty of an Assamese girl or woman manifold? C’mon! You don’t have to rack your brains for the answer as it lies at the tip of your toungue. It’s our otikoi senehor Axomiya Xaaj Par.  "Moi sador mekhela pindhim with matching jewellery” is every Assamese girl's dream in any graceful function. So, then, let’s squeeze some time out and bask in re-learning about some Axomiya Xaaj Pusak I bet the Assamese in you simply can’t live without.


Being an Axomiya, you definitely cannot think of any occasion without Muga Mekhela Sador. A girl wearing Mekhela Sador walking past a guy is bound to get several glances of silent appreciation from him. Well, sometimes, the silence can be a tad too loud too. Ha-ha!


Every girl wants to look colourful. And, Assamese girls no way lag behind in this. Pat Muga Sador comes in a variety of colour and delights all our girls. And, every Axomiya koina looks so stunningly beautiful in it that the guests around can’t help but comment "Iman dhuniya lagise koina joni kapur juror hoite"


"O' horu bhoni muga riha pindhili dekhi morom laagi jai". Every Bihu nasoni looks pretty in Riha and the folds of her attire go in perfect rhythm with her mesmerizing dance moves. The beauty of an Axomiya woman not just lies on her face but also reflects in her dress.


Jewellery is the weak point of every woman and, I would say the weakest point of every Assamese woman. It’s nice to watch the moon at night and it’s nice to wear half-moon too. So, don't wait. Just have it and wear it.


The only thing that you can’t hear in this drum-shaped ornament is the beating sound. But, who cares! Wearing this exquisite piece of Assamese jewellery is no less than a musical affair, right girls?


The quintessential piece of ethnic jewellery that adorns the wrist of an Assamese bride and is a must for any Bihu dancer. You don't need any other ornament if you own this. No other bangle can ever take the place of a Gamkharu.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Assamese women weave fairy tales in their clothes.”. But, what Bapuji had missed out on was the Assamese ethnic attire and gohona, which is the pride of every Assamese girl.
