Hallo,
I like to attend the Rangali Bihu Festival in Assam this year, arriving Guwahati on 13th April. Can any Imer share his/her experience? I wish to take photographs of the festival, and so open air dances will help me a lot. Any information about open-air dance?

I haven't been to the festival, but the Assam tourist bureau are extremely helpful. They probably have a full programme etc.
They have an office in Guwahati and also in Shillong.
Just a thought.

The festivals of Assam are many and varied. The most famous or well known is called, thanks to the wonderful dance of the same name, “Bihu”. The word is associated or synonymous with the word “festival”. Many different festivals at different times in the year and they are all called “XYZ Bihu”. There are three key Bihu’s. The most important one is in April and it is called Bohag Bihu or Rangali Bihu. In October/November it is to celebrate the completion of the sowing of the paddy and is called Kati Bihu, and in January marking the end of the harvesting season is Magh Bihu. Thus the Bihu festival celebrates three seasons.

Bohag Bihu is is the most important Bihu of all and marks the start of the Assamese New Year.

Bohaag Bihu is also called the "Rongali Bihu" or the Festival of Merry making.

So this year enjoy Rongali Bihu in Guwahati.
