The Apatani Plug

Living in the Ziro dell in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in India’s northeast, the women of the Apatani tribe were regarded as the most beautiful females among all the Arunachal tribes. Unfortunately, since everyone likes beautiful ladies, they were invaded by people from other tribes and so, they had to make themselves look ugly to repel any invader. In order to remain safe from the intruders, the Apatani women started to plug wooden corks in their noses, which is a custom not braced by the younger members of the 26,000 people-strong tribe today.
