HAFLONG, Feb 11 � After 36 years, �Hangsao Busu� was celebrated at Guaidisa, 60 km from Haflong, with traditional gaiety since January 27, which was attended by Bijoendra Sengyung, executive member of the Dima Hasao Autonomous Council along with others.
In several places of Haflong, like Dibarai, Digrik, Town Rajee, Boildura and Gdain Rajee, Busu was celebrated with great enthusiasm.
Busu is one of most important and biggest festivals celebrated by the Dimasa people. �Busu� means the festival of eating newly grown autumnal rice, and so it could be considered as the harvesting festival too, which mirrors the rich culture and tradition of the Dimasa community.
Dimasa people observe �Busu� by arranging feasts and various cultural functions. It is celebrated in three ways, namely Jidab, Surem and Hangsaomanouba.
