BOHAG BIHU FESTIVAL



Bohag Bihu, also known as Rongali Bihu, marks the advent of the Assamese New Year and the arrival of spring. Celebrated with great enthusiasm in Assam, India, this festival spans several days and showcases the rich cultural heritage and agricultural traditions of the region.

The festivities involve a series of rituals and activities that symbolize the agricultural cycle, community bonding, and cultural rejuvenation. The first day, Goru Bihu, is dedicated to the welfare of livestock, particularly cattle, which are washed and adorned. The following day, Manuh Bihu, focuses on human well-being, where new clothes are worn, and special dishes are prepared. The third day, Gosai (Gods) Bihu, involves prayers for prosperity and health.

Music and dance are integral to Bohag Bihu, with the Bihu dance and the melodious Bihu songs reflecting the joy and spirit of the season. The festival also sees the exchange of sweets and gifts among friends and family, strengthening social ties.

Moreover, Bohag Bihu is a reflection of Assam’s agrarian base and ethos, celebrating the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature. It’s not just a festive occasion but a living tradition that reinforces Assamese identity and communal harmony.

This festival serves as a vivid canvas portraying the vibrant culture, folklore, and traditions of Assam, making it an essential part of India’s diverse cultural mosaic.
