Asom Divas, also known as Assam Divas, annually celebrates the formation of the Indian state of Assam on December 2.
This day holds historical significance, symbolizing the creation of Assam in 1963. Before this, Assam was part of a broader state that encompassed Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Mizoram, and Meghalaya.
However, the enactment of the States Reorganization Act of 1956 detached Nagaland and Meghalaya from Assam on December 2, 1963, shaping the Assam that we recognize today. Asom Divas provides an opportunity for the people of Assam to honour their state’s distinct identity and diverse cultural heritage.
It’s a moment for contemplation on their varied culture, tea plantations, wildlife reserves, and traditional art forms, celebrating the unity and diversity that defines their state.
