Bihu dance to dazzle in R-Day tableau

Bihu dance in Assam is set to dazzle in the Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi. The state's tableau will showcase the age old Assamese Bihu dance before lakhs of people in the national capital. 

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday  requested defence minister Manohar Parrikar to give the state an opportunity to display its tableau in the forthcoming Republic Day celebrations.

According to Gogoi, a tableau from Assam in the Republic Day parade will help enhance the sense of patriotism amongst the people and instill a feeling of nationalism amongst the misguided youth of the state.

Meanwhile, the Centre's Expert Committee for Selection of Tableau has shortlisted the design to showcase Bihu dance which is likely to be finalised in a day or two.

The Assam governemnt submitted four designs for the state tableau, out of which the design showcasing the Bihu dance was shortlisted by the Expert Committee.

Notably, a section of media in Assam has been blaming state and Centre saying that the state will miss its tableau in the Republic Day function in the capital.
