Assam celebrates colourful Rongali bihu

Assam is celebrating its much-vaunted Rongali bihu from Sunday with a clarion call to the misguided youths to eschew the path of violence. Sunday was garu bihu. Cattle in large number across the state were taken to the rivers for puja offering with traditional favour in the morning.

Bihu functions also started from Sunday morning. Participating in the Latashil Bihu function in the morning Chief minister Tarun Gogoi appealed to the misguided youths to shun the path of violence to make Assam a haven of peace. He also hoped that the bihu celebrations will clear the path of a peaceful and progressive Assam. He participated in the bihu huchai by dancing and beating a drum for sometimes.

Another function was there at the historic Judges’ Field. Organized by AASU, hundreds of people including the cine artists participated in the function. Everybody got mesmerized when voice of India Debojit Saha was signing Zibone Morone Chiradin Assomiya Hoi Thakim along with a few other epoch making songs. Before that noted singer Khagen Mahanta in his addressed urged the people to stick to the cultural identity of Assam. He expressed grave concern over the face that a section of artists and businessmen have been trying to vitiate the atmosphere and culture by flooding some superficial sings and performances and appealed to the student fraternity to keep a close look into it. The reports of Bihu celebrations are also pouring in from other places of the state.
