The word Rongali refers to the emotion of joyfulness. During the month of April, on the occasion of the Assamese New Year, Rongali or Bohag Bihu is celebrated. As  the dry weather of February and March (Fagun and Choit) comes to an end, the new year begins with the promise of new life everywhere.

Goru Bihu

Choit or the last day of the old year is dedicated to the cattle, and named as ‘Goru Bihu’. The cattle  are bathed in fresh water at the riverside or at the empty paddy fields. People offer the cattle a paste of black gram and turmeric before the bathing starts. It is believed to be best for protecting their skin. The cattle are left free, after the session of bathing,

 

People go to take a bath in the river or pond with the remaining paste of turmeric and black gram (matimah) followed by feasting on various snacks made from rice flour or the rice boiled or fried in unique traditional patterns, relished with curd and jaggery. 

 

When the cattle return home after the end of the day, they are welcomed with a new traditional rope called ‘Tora pogha’. This gesture is similar to offering a new cloth to the cattle. Cattles are also served with different food preparations. Different food preparations are also served at night.

 

Manuh Bihu

People clean their homes and have a traditional bath using turmeric on the occasion of Manuh Bihu. Wearing traditional attires, people visit their relatives, seeking blessings from the elders.
