Home to the affluent and aristocratic, The Khongiya Barooah family of Upper Assam, Thengal Manor upholds the pride of being that historic place from where the very first daily newspaper in Assamese, ‘Dainik Batori’ was launched on 12th August 1935.

The Assamese cuisine is diverse, unique, simple and palatable. The variety of food that the state has to offer is exceptional.

KAZIRANGA GOLF RESORT: A SLICE OF COLONIAL LIFESTYLE

Jona Chakraborty

My happiness knew no bounds when I set out to explore my homeland Assam. The last frontier of the country, which was left unconquered by the Mughal emperors, Assam upholds the pride of being called a land of splendid secrets. The gateway to the alluring and unexploited north-eastern part of India, Assam is a treasure trove of glorious history, unparalleled scenic surroundings, indigenous ethnic groups and a bundle of fascinating tales from the past. Unlike any other destination, traveling through this verdant land, sprawling paddy rice fields framed by the vaguely visible hills, the forested lands, and manicured tea estates make me ecstatic in my own land.

Northeast India is an exotic land. Being a North-Eastern myself, I can vouch for the fact that Northeast India is unique and a land full of surprises. The unbeatable hospitality of the people, jaw-dropping natural beauty, cloud laden landscapes, Eco-friendly lifestyles, and enriching history of the land will surely make you wander in the distant land at least once.

Though north-eastern states have been getting a fair share of the spotlight in the tourist map of India lately, it is still considered as a remote part of India by many. Apart from the famous festivals like Hornbill, Ziro, NH7 Weekender, Tawang, Orange, Sangai, Bihu, etc., people are not aware of the social fabric and the rich cultural heritage of Northeast India.

STEPPING BACK IN TIME: WILD MAHSEER, ASSAM

Saurabh Jain

We arrived at Wild Mahseer in the night after a five-hour drive from Guwahati. Drained and greasy after an entire day journey, I was just looking to settle in. Just then, light fruit cakes and cookies arrived. And, Assam’s very own Assam black tea served as a beverage. Incidentally, once the liquid and aromas hit my senses, I was back to my old pleasing self(!!).

 

I entered my room to portrait frames and porcelain plates of colorful birds hanging on the walls. Additionally, curtains, and pillows with birds printed on it and a glass-walled bathroom. I then sensed a pattern in these rooms, all rooms are themed with either birds, animals, fishes, flowers or plants. Apparently, the wooden furniture and the brilliant art pieces are personally handpicked by the owner’s wife. And, in line with its rich heritage of the colonial era. All in all, Wild Mahseer is a perfect fusion of history and class tucked into a 22-acre sanctuary. It gives you the feel of an ancestral family home. ....
