Assam is in grip of week-long Rongali Bihu fever
Assam seems to be in grip of fever of its most joyous festival, Rongali Bihu, which at certain places will last for seven days. Bihu Sanmillans by various community groups are being organised all across Assam, informed Tridip Pathak, facebook friend from Barpeta town of Assam.

In Tezpur, a six-day programme started from April 13 at Tezpur Collegiate High School field with unfurling of Bihu flag followed by competitions;  cultural procession of various ethnic cultural groups; comedy show, cultural performances of Bihu songs and dances by the local artists and special felicitation of noted personalities and local achievers.

Functions are being organised by various clubs and cultural organisations in all towns and cities of Assam. Rongali Bihu or Bohag Bihu marks the beginning of the Assamese New Year and the festivities start on the last day of the month of Chaitra and continue for a week.

Bihu is the most auspicious and much celebrated festival in Assam with great fervor, pomp and show marked by togetherness of near and dear ones and the community and enjoyed feasting, merry-making, dancing and singing. 

Here is my acrostic on BIHU.

I: Ingratiation of elders and joyous celebration of fertility

H: Happy New Year of joy, peace and prosperity

U: Unity and amity among Assamese communities

Here is another BIHU acrostic and wish.

Here are Bihu greetings in Assamese.

Bihuti ahise, dhul pepa bajise, birikhe holaise paat, nahoror hubakhot ure mon, ulahot bihu bihu lagise gaat bihur hiyabhora subhessa jonalu.  Happy Bohag Bihu!
