Bohag Bihu issues of Assamese magazines and Assamese news papers

For me Bihu is also that  special time when popular assamese daily news papers and and magazines publish a special Bihu issues. The cover page would be a bright picture of an exuberant team performing bihu 'Hunsari' or a team of lovely Assamese girls performing Jeng Bihu. This picture is an integral part of Bihu and people use to buy these editions to spend time in the bihu leaves.

Some popular Bihu special editions of Assamese news papers are Sadin Basanta Sambhar or Pratidin Bihu Sankhya, Amar Asom Bihu Sankhya, Ajir Asom, Asomiya Khabar, Dainik Janambhumi etc. Sadin Basanta Sambhar is edited by popular Assamese writer, journalist editor of Sadin Anuradha Sharma Pujari. And all the monthly and fortnightly magazines  of Assamese language offer special Bihu issues. Assamese leading fortnightly Prantik does not mention the two April issues as monthly issues, but probably you will get the most informative, useful and collectible articles about Bihu in these two issues. The cover page eariler carried the bihu performance but now I have noticed that it is mostly about rare pictures of Bihu related herbs or something really a feast for the eyes.

Bihu is just a couple of days away. Like BHupenda said Bihu is the strength of Assamese collective life. Let this Bohag bihu too usher in great enthusiasm, spirit for life and much more. Let the special Bihu issues really bear the true spirit of Bihu and people enjoy them more than those meanigless functions which are organized well past the actual Bohag month.
