The land of black magic - Mayang


Magical Assam:-


Mayank, vudu, black magic



We like magic because it fascinating us, we love to feel the wonder that cannot be explained logically. That why J.K Rowling developed a world of wizards and spells that enjoyed by everyone regardless of age. In life sometimes we also feel that our wish can come true- mostly when someone pissed you out, and out of jealousy, wrath you feel to curse that person in your mind and you hope that your evil cursed can come true. Magic can also be used to cure
disease, bring love and happiness in life etc.



“Black magic is not a myth. It is a totally unscientific and emotional form of magic, but it does get results – of an extremely temporary nature.”

— Aleister Crowley

Though many houses have the old manuscript they don't reveal it, as it passed to their own generation and not belong to the outsider. A small museum - Mayong central museum is established in 2002  to keep and protect the heritage of the mayong. It is a great place for its wildlife and archaeological pilgrimage.
