Today April 15, 2010 is observed as Rongali or Bohag Bihu in Assam state in India. It is the Assamese New Year and the first day of the Bohag month. Bohag Bihu is a festival with its roots entrenched in Mother Nature. Mother Nature throws off her old garbs and comes out afresh in magnificent hue and glory. This lifts up the spirit of people and rekindles hope and positive energy.
