In deep grip of bihu festivity

Magh bihu festivity grips Assam on Friday across the state where people of all walks of life are preparing to celebrate the much vaunted occasion.

Huge preparation is underway in the open field to hold uruka on Friday night with community feasting under a make shift house of straw and bamboo.

Cultural functions are lined up for the night in many urban and semi urban areas to be accompanied by jam kirtan on the occasion.

Magh bihu falls on Saturday to be marked where the people would lit up the meji, a huge structure of wood and bamboo early in the morning to offer puja to the firegod.

Traditional Assamese sweets and delicious items are flooding the household to be served to the near and dear ones on the occasion.
