History of U Tirot Sing Day

A number of holidays are observed in the northeastern states of the country. Many of these holidays are dedicated to tribal leaders who fought against the British. One among them was U Tirot Sing.

U Tirot Sing fought against the British in April 1829. The attack to drive the British out of the Khasi Hills led to the Anglo-Khasi War. The war lasted for about four years. Even though the Khasi were outnumbered and ill-equipped, the bravery of the men helped in fighting the British for four years. Tirot Sing was captured by the British and passed away on 17 July 1835 in jail at Dhaka. The U Tirot Sing Memorial is located at Mairang Town and wreaths are placed there on 17 July of every year.
