Bihu



Bihu is the National Festival of Assam. There are three Bihu festivals in Assam and they are celebrated in the months of Bohaag (the middle of April), Maagh (the middle of January), and Kaati (the middle of October).
Of the three Bihu festivals, the Bohaag Bihu marks the arrival of spring. Bihu songs are sung to celebrate the occasion. The songs are composed in couplets that rhyme, and each couplet depicts a different emotion. The language is simple and clear. The next day is the main Bihu Day on which people greet each other and pay their respect to the elders in the family by presenting with a new 'Gamosa', i.e. a traditional Assamese towel. Kati Bihu is the quietest Bihu of the three.
