Praying for my father in law’s speedy recovery.” Me-Dam-Me-Phi is celebrated by the Tai Ahom community on January 31 every year to pay tributes to their ancestors. Apart from this, people also pay their tributes to Swargadeow Chaolung Sukapha, the founder of Ahom kingdom in Assam during the occasion.
