Rallu Lam & Par Lam Dance
Strictly speaking, Rallu lam is not a dance as such. It is fairly a celebration or a rite in honour of a victorious warrior. When a warrior comes back after a victorious compaign, he is given a warm and colourful reception by the village Chief.
The celebration consists of a re-enactment of the warrior's heroic exploits.
The land of enchanting hills has yet another dance to its credit - Par Lam. Girls attired in Colorful dresses, with flowers tucked in their hair, dance to the tune of songs sung by them.
The principal movement in the dance involves the waving of hands. The most popular song sung for the dance : Far from the mountain the gay little stream, rippling along, rippling alwong.
