Rongali Bihu festival celebrated in Assam

Rongali Bihu festival celebrated in Assam

This year Rongali Bihu will be celebrated on April 14.

Derived from the word bishu, Bihu means 'to ask for prosperity from the Gods during the harvest season'.

Rongali Bihu, also known as Bohag Bihu, is the Assamese New Year wherein farmers thank the lord for the successful harvest and welcome the spring season.

Observed at almost the same time as Baisakhi in Punjab, Poila Baisakh in Bengal, Puthandu in Tamil Nadu and Vishu in Kerala, this year, Rongali Bihu will be celebrated on April 14.
