Bhoot Jolokia & Hornbill
The Naga Bhut Jolokia is one of the hottest chilli peppers in the world. It is widely called Bhut Jolokia or Bhoot Jolokia, which literally translates to ‘Ghost Chilli’ in Assamese & Bengali. The Bhut Jolokia is cultivated in the Nagaland & Assam region of northeastern India. This dented, rough textured pepper is used as a spice as well as a remedy for summer heat, as it induces perspiration. Believed to have been named after the ferocious Naga warriors of Nagaland, the Naga Jolokia finds many other uses in the Northeast India. These include smearing the pepper on fences or making smoke bombs as a safety precaution to keep wild elephants away.
The Great Indian Hornbill, now an endangered species, is found in the forests of Nepal, India, the Malay peninsula and Sumatra. Also called the king of birds for its majestic beauty and vivid colours, it is a vital part of Naga culture and rituals. The beak of the hornbill is highly prized and is used as a decorative element in Naga headdresses and houses. The Hornbill Festival of Nagaland is a cultural extravaganza held every year in the first week of December as a tribute to this beautiful creature.
