Rongali Bihu (also called Bohag Bihu), the most popular Bihu celebrates the onset of the Assamese New Year and the coming of Spring.The farmers prepare the fields for cultivation of paddy and there is a feeling of joy around. The ladies make pitha, larus (traditional food made of rice and coconut) and Jolpan which gives the real essence of the season. The first day of the bihu is called goru bihu or cow bihu, where the cows are washed and worshipped, which falls on the last day of the previous year. This is followed by manuh (human) bihu , the New Year Day. This is the day of getting cleaned up, wearing new cloths and celebrating and getting ready for the new year with fresh vigor.
