The most-awaited and vibrant festival of Assam, Magh Bihu is upon us and the streets are filled with Pithas, laddoos and a variety of Assamese sweets.

Bihu is an important festival in Assam and the Assamese celebrate it thrice a year. The three Bihu are festivals with reverence for Krishna, cattle (Goru Bihu), elders in the family, fertility and mother goddess.

Rongali or Bohag Bihu is celebrated in April, Kongali or Kati bihu is observed in October and Bhogali or Magh Bihu is celebrated in January.

Rongali bihu or Bohag Bihu

Bohag Bihu is one of the most significant and important festivals in the Bihu calendar of Assam. It celebrates the commencement of harvesting season and is also regarded as the first day of the Assamese New Year. The significance of this festival is purely agricultural in nature.

After a difficult year, let us welcome this Bihu with hope, positivity and anticipation.

Kongali or Kati Bihu

Kati Bihu is not a flamboyant festival and the festivities are more sombre in nature. This Bihu is celebrated during the time of relocation of the rice sapling during the month of October. The granaries of the farmers usually remain empty during this time, hence it is known as Kongali (poor) Bihu.

Bhogali Bihu or Magh Bihu is celebrated during the month of January which marks the end of the harvest season. Magh Bihu is the second-largest Bihu festival of Assam after Bohag Bihu. On Magh Bihu, the granaries of the farmers are full and there is festivity all around.
