Love for Bihu

Bohag Bihu or Rogali Bihu is not just a festival, it's a heartbeat that beats in every assamese heart. Bihu is an energy and spirit that carries a whole lot assamese emotion.

Food: Bihu is happiness in eating assamese delicacies whether it's pitha(Assamese sweet fritter) or jolpan(assamese cereal). Assamese home gets fragmented by all the delicious Bihu food.

Handlooms or gifts: Bihu is the beginning of the assamese new year. Buying and gifting new clothes is a tradition. Gifting a handcrafted assamese gamosa or mekhela chadar to your beloved is always fun. Is it not exciting enough to celebrate Bihu?

Bloom: Bihu is the time of the year that witness the bloom of beauty or beautiful flowers. New leaves come during this time and transform Assam into a whole new scene. Kapau full (foxtail flower) accentuate Bihu esthetics.

Season of love or wedding: Bihu is the ultimate season of love. Bihu songs totally depict all the told and untold Assamese love sagas. Many people start a new beginning of their life including us. We tied the knot in the Month of Bohag or Bohag Bihu.

Music and Dance: Bihu, Rogali Bihu is no fun without some great music and gracious dance moves. Bihu transforms Assam into a musical telltale.  As they say,  Dhool (assamese drum) brings thunderstorms, and Pepa brings lightning, that the intensity of Assamese Bihu.
Enjoy the Bihu and Bihu season.

1st Anniversary and a Giveaway

Hello readers rather hello friends, Hope you all are doing great. This week is such an emotional week for me as my blog turned one year.  I can't thank you enough for your neverending support. The year of my blogging journey was not very easy one. I saw so many ups and downs, but certainly an interesting one. Every weekend I struggle with what to post next, yet your overwhelming response gives me an instant boost when I almost gave up. Every morning when I open my page or insta or facebook your message and encouragement inspire me to write and get better.
This is my first giveaway for my blog. As my blog is Acupofassamtea I wanted to giveaway something close to heart and my state. This is a handloom Eri Shawl or scarf and a packet of natural green tea sponsored by Green Moments Tea Co. With a neverending hope and love have a great weekend.
