KANGALI Bihu

The next Bihu called the Kati Bihu or Kangali Bihu comes sometime around October (in Kartik according to hindu calendar). This is an occasion not for feasts or fun but for meditation and prayer. Absence of money in the pocket of the farmer as no harvest is due, has been wisely utilised for the noblest purpose of meditating. Also, a lesson in thirft is taught to the younger generation. ma Lakshmi's blessings are sought by lighting an oil lamp every night in the paddy fields. The holy tulsi plant is planted in the courtyard of houses and watered by each member of the family.
