Guwahati: On the occasion of Republic Day, the Meghalaya’s tableau showcased bamboo and cane handicrafts as well as Lakadong turmeric to honour women-led cooperative societies and self-help groups.

While the front part of the tableau depicting a woman weaving a bamboo basket and several bamboo and cane products of Meghalaya, the rear portion of the tableau depicted the traditional farming and processing of Lakadong turmeric.

Women-led cooperative societies and self-help groups today cater to the demand for these products from across the globe.
