Rongali Bihu Celebration
This year, Rongali Bihu was celebrated at the residence of Debojit and Ruma Barua on the 6th of April, 2013. Due to the ongoing preparations for the 34th Assam Convention, Rongali Bihu was celebrated on a smaller scale in a very ghoruwa way. However, that did not stop anyone from enjoying the festivities to the fullest. Spirits were as high as ever. Besides the traditional laru-pitha, there was a lavish pot-luck home-made spread enjoyed by all. And what is Rongali Bihu without dancing and music! There were a variety of performances from singing and dancing to comedy. It was delightful to see the little ones get into the Bihu spirit also.

During the evening’s festivities, we also celebrated the recent wedding of Chandan Mazumder and Pramita Mitra. The evening came to an end in the wee hours and everyone went home anticipating the next big event in our city, the 34th Assam Convention!
