This mystery insect appears everytime around the FIFA World Cup in Meghalaya

first_imgMillions of football lovers are eagerly waiting for the final match of FIFA World Cup 2018 today. The world waits with bated breath as France and Croatia come face to face in Moscow today.Interestingly, a tiny insect in a remote corner in Meghalaya also joins the football frenzy.A strange insect appears in the villages of Meghalaya’s Ri Bhoi district. This insect appears for one month every four years and then disappears for the next four years, until the next world cup.The insect is a sub-species of the Cicada family and is called Chremistica. It emerges from the ground in several villages of Ri Bhoi district every four years, typically one month around the FIFA World Cup.The villagers have named the winged insect Niangtaser (Niang is an insect in Khasi language) and have nicknamed the insect as World Cup Insect.It is a mystery why the insect appears exactly before the FIFA World Cup every four years.This year as well, not too long before the FIFA World Cup, the villagers heard the whistling sounds of the insects. The football crazy villagers have renamed the insect as Niang World Cup.The villagers also organise a festival every four years as the insect appears. The Niangtaser festival was organised in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018.(With inputs from Hemanta Kumar Nath in Guwahati)last_img read more
