Chavang kut of Manipur 2021 date

The last year 2020, affected the kut celebration because of a global pandemic. It was on 1st November 2020, when the world was suffering. This year, the situation is almost under control. Same as last year, Chavang kut will celebrate on 1st November with all the essentials. 

What to expect from Chavang kut this year?

Agriculture is the sector that is affected most by the global pandemic. Last year it was on peak and farmers faced the double impact of low yield harvesting and pandemic too. 

Chavang kut celebration was not celebrated as its real form but at some places, people did shadow celebrations. 

Till October last week of 2021, most of the situation is under control in India. People can travel, gather with essential safety equipment. So this year, it may be a huge celebration of Chavang kut in Manipur. People suffered a lot last year, so they can feel a double increase in the value of joy by celebration.
