I have found these two unknown insects in Dibrugarh, Assam, India but
don’t know the name.
So would like to know the name.

Dear Jeet,
We are splitting your request into two separate postings.  The creature with the white filaments is an immature Planthopper Nymph, possibly in the family Fulgoridae.  The filaments are actually a waxy substance produced by the Planthopper nymph as protection.
