The Tai Ahoms living in India and the Thais living in Thailand are the inheritors of the ancient Tai Culture and Civilization originating almost five thousand years ago. The states of North East India especially Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur and the Kingdom of Thailand share common Tai culture, ethnic origins and histories. However, the awareness among the public in Thailand on the existence of Tai societies in North East India is not very widespread. There are now seven known Tai communities in North East India, namely, Tai Ahom, Tai Aiton, Tai Khamyang, Tai Khamti, Tai Phake, Tai Turung and the recently understood Tai Lai community in Sekmai district of Manipur.

The objective of this panel discussion is to enhance mutual understanding of the commonalities between Tai societies of NE India with those of the Kingdom of Thailand including drawing parallels in terms of language, way of life, cuisine, cultural specificities, etc.

The club provides meals and drinks at quite reasonable prices.
