Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known to dress for the occasion and his first appearance in poll-bound Manipur was no different. On Saturday, PM Modi adorned an elaborate traditional Manipuri headgear with a peacock-plume and a cloak.
The head piece worn by PM Modi is similar to Kajenglie, an ornament often worn by female dancers who play Lord Krishna in a traditional dance. The head dressing worn by a bride which is well-equipped with ornaments is also known as Kajenglie. The head piece is an integral part of the Meitei culture, the largest ethnic group in Manipur. Kajenglie, often made of bamboo, is also used as a wall decor.
