Guwahati: Assam’s renowned tourism place Kaziranga National Park is witnessing a huge number of foreign tourists as well as travelers from around the country. As they are overwhelmed with the beauty of the place, the tourist place is also witnessing protests against Citizenship Amendment Bill at the same time.
While, it being the peak time for the migratory birds to visit Kaziranga and enhance the beauty of the place, the place has not seen any such birds this year. Earlier, the birds could be usually seen from the mid of October, but one could hardly spot any bird this time. Researchers are of the opinion that one of the probable reasons could be the climate change leading to unfavourable environmental conditions.
In the meantime, Kaziranga today has also observed the second day of the “Silk and Dye Festival” organized by Janambhumi Janakalyan in association with YCSD and Earth Craft. The festival will be held till 15th December. The festival gives the silk weavers a platform to showcase their products with a number of shops from different parts of the Northeast. Among all the commodities being sold, folk musical instruments like “Gagana” and “Sutuli” are in high demand.
