Spotlight: Aahatguri

Have you even been to Aahatguri? Limelight falls again on the huge area in Marigaon district. Hardly a week is left. Aahatguri is gearing up for the buffalo fight. The historic event will begin from January 15 to end on January 16.

Noted writer Gauhati University Professor Noni Gopal Mahanta will open the two days historic event on January 15 morning. Other programmes include serving of Pitha-jalpaan, art competition, Bhagavat recitation on the first day. The second day programme will begin with the lighting of ceremonial lamp. It would be followed by annual buffalo fight from 9 in the morning.

The Ahatguri field has a separate identity in the socio-cultural life of Assam. Apart from being the birth place of Lakshminath Bezbaroa, the entire area is known for the buffalo-fight which began in 1972.
