Guwahati: A little boy’s genuine efforts to create an Ao Naga attire is winning hearts on the internet.

Arwin Bora, a class 6 student at Father Agnel School, Noida, did a video project on Nagaland.

The 11-year-old, who frequents Dzukou Tribal Kitchen, loves Naga food and decided to pick Nagaland as his research subject.

He recreated Ao Naga outfit using his mother’s jewellery, father’s shawl and other items. For the headgear, he used a Himachal cap and covered it with a bag, while he made the spear using a broomstick.

Karen Yepthomi, the owner of Dzukou Tribal Kitchen and a family friend, shared his video on Facebook.

Speaking with EastMojo, she said, “The boy is very talented and artistic.”

His father, Anirban Bora, a graphic editor with The Economic Times told EastMojo that since he loves Naga food, he decided to do the project on Nagaland.

As opposed to what is expected in last-minute preparation, the costume he created turned out to be very nice.

In the 1 minute 6-second video, Arwin talks about Nagaland, its tribes, and its food.

His mother, Sirattiya Bora, is from Thailand. She works in the hospitality industry and runs a home-based kitchen called ‘Aroi’ that serves authentic Thai food.
