Magh Bihu is not confine to Assam only these days. The much vaunted festival seems to have gone beyond the geographical boundaries at the initiatives of a section of Assamese people residing outside.
Mention may be made of Bangaluru where the festival was celebrated at the Goan resort Palolem Tree House on January 16.
