Ningol Chakouba is an important festival celebrated by the Meiteis
. It is held in the month of November, on the second day of the new moon.
This amazing festival symbolizes a family reunion. The designation Ningol Chakouba is derived from two words, Ningol (meaning 'daughter of the family') and chakouba (meaning 'invite to a feast'). On this festive day, parents invite their married daughters and their children to a feast and share experiences.
