Though i was invited by mail but could not attend the ceremony due to my duty. As i am a worker in a Hotel, but next time i am great ready to attend such kind of activity. Besides it is very useful as well as important to focus an idea about the culture of Assam in front of the entire world. Wishing the very best of all the well wisher and the organisar of the association.

I have been living in Gurgaon for past 9 years and have never known about such events taking place. Would love to be a part of it. I have been able to celebrate Ronagali and Bhogali Bihu for years now. Regards Pooja

This year's Rongali Bihu 2010 celebration was a grand success. A lot improved from when we first started celebrating the same in Gurgaon (year 2007). And I hope and pray that with every passing year we organise it in much much grander way !!! And Kudos to mridul da (president AAG) who puts a lot of extra time , energy and effort to make it Successful, Grand and better than previous year every year !!!

I am an Assamese living in Sukhrali, Gurgaon for the last 4 years with my husband. And I would really like to meet up with people from the northeast residing here. I have heard that there are quite a number of assamese families here, and we can organise some parties, etc.
