Happy Bihu to All
The Assamese New Year, most popularly known as Bihu celebrates the coming of Spring. There are three Bihu festivals in a year – Rongali Bihu, Bhugali Bihu and Kangali Bihu signifying the different phases in the farming calendar. Of the three Bihu festivals, the most widely celebrated is the Rongali Bihu. The first day of the Rongali Bihu is called goru (cow) Bihu where the cows are washed and worshipped.
This is followed by manuh (human) Bihu where one wears new clothes and prepares for the New Year. The third and final day is known as Gosai (Gods) Bihu wherein statues of Gods are worshipped. At several places Bihu fairs are organized and people participate in games and perform group folk dances.
