Here comes Bihu

If spring comes can the Bohag Bihu stay far behind? Here comes the Bihu. Tender leaves on the trees, season flowers in full bloom, chirping of birds seem to have dressed the entire state afresh. Armed with traditional dhul, pepa, gogona and flute, the youths are busy with rehearsal for bihu huchori. The girls in the rural areas are busy with weaving bihuwans for their near and dear ones. The women in these areas are concentrating on delicacies to be served on the much vaunted occasion.

Huge pandels are seen in the urban areas hardly two weeks before the festival of merrymaking. Organizers are making beeline on the doors of the performing artists seeking engagements on the occasion.

The festival is slated to begin on April 14 to be marked by Goru Bihu where the cows are to be worshipped. This would be followed by the bor bihu on April 15.
