TEZPUR, April 5: The people in and around Tezpur town are all set to celebrate Rongali Bihu with much pomp and gaiety despite a number of challenges including post pandemic situation, soaring price rise etc., for celebrating the much loved Assamese festival to the hilt. People here are busy making brisk preparations while the Bihu Committees have left no stone unturned to celebrate the festival in a spirit of harmony and togetherness. Perhaps it goes without saying that following the Covid-19 pandemic situation during the last two years, people of the region couldn’t celebrate the Rongali Bihu to their heart’s content. However, this time as the government has withdrawn Covid-19 protocols after improvement in the situation, people from every walk of life are ready to enjoy the Bohag Bihu.

The major Rongali Bihu committees in Tezpur town including Ushanagar Rongali Pathar Anchalick Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Uttar Tezpur Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Madhya Tezpur Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Luitpar Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Dakshin-Paschim Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Polo-field Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Uttar Pub Tezpur Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Mazgaon Bihu Sanmilan, Tezpur Central Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Joymati Pathar Bihu Sanmilan among others, which have existed for over 50 years are all gearing up to glamorise the festival in a befitting manner.

Meanwhile, these Bihu committees that have been vibrant since their inception in promoting Assamese culture and heritages, after the halt of their socio-cultural activities in the last couple of years due to the Covid-prompted situation are now seen busy preparing for the upcoming Rongali Bihu, the festival of joy and prosperity.

Upon contacting, president of Ushanagar Rangoli Pathar Anchalik Rongali Bihu Sanmilan, Dilip Kumar Kakati, secretary of their sister organisation Rongali Maina Parijat, Sumi Phukan said that like in the past many years, they have taken initiative on conducting a month long Bihu dance and dhol playing and training workshop to propagate the rich Assamese folk culture among the new generation, who tend to forget the Assamese culture and have adopted many forms of western culture. Around 100 children are participating in the workshop. The organisers mentioned that the workshop is conducted every year with a motto to save the Assamese culture and propagate its high moral values among the children of the new generation. Tezpur AASU is also organising a workshop on Bihu dance and dhol playing at Tezpur Swahid Bakari.

On the other hand, in the Tezpur University campus Dr Biren Das, Registrar, Tezpur University inaugurated a Bihu dance workshop on Tuesday at the university community hall by the Tezpur University Non-teaching Employees Association with a weeklong programme.
