What is Bihu / Bengali New Year?

Bihu / Bengali New Year

The Assamese people of India have a major festival denominated Bihu, which is composed of three distinctive ceremonies that are observed on different months of the year. The most prominent of the three festivals is the Rongali Bihu, which marks the start of the new year in the Assam state, as well as the spring festival. It typically falls in April, according the Gregorian calendar. The second festival is the Magh Bihu, which is a harvest festival that celebrates the end of the harvesting season; coinciding with January. It is usually celebrated by holding feasts and bonfires for a week. The third and final festival is the Kongali Bihu, which is known for its disparate nature in juxtaposition with the other two festivals; for its lack of the exuberant atmosphere. It is usually observed in October by farmers who pray for a good harvest.
