India is the land of festivals and every state has its own unique traditions and festivals. At the start of the year, the first set of Indian festivals is a string of harvest festivities known by different names across the country. In the north-eastern state of Assam, it’s time of Magh Bihu or Bhogali Bihu, during which farmers thank God for a good harvest and spread cheer with dances, games and delicious meals.
