Geetima Baruah Sarma (April 26,1969 / Assam, India)
Enjoyment and feasting,
Building the ‘Bhelaghar’,
Pranks with the neighbour.
The morning after,
Obeisance to the God of fire,
Burning the tall ‘Meji’,
Made of bamboo and paddy.
‘Sunga pitha’, ‘kaath aloo’,
Customary delights of ‘Magh Bihu’,
With friends and families,
Flavours of Assamese delicacies.
