�I feel blessed to be a part of such a grand celebration of keeping the customs of our homeland alive and promoting them. These events help keeping us connected to our roots since we are away from home and it�s a way to reach people�s hearts. Performing Bihu for the first time made me all emotional and proud at the same time and felt like home. Thanks to NEIACO for giving us this opportunity,� said Sagarika Dutta Bhuyan.
