NAGAON, Jan 16 - The Bhogali Bihu programme organised at Nehrubali here observed its 105th anniversary this year.

Nagaon, it may be mentioned, has an age-old tradition of celebrating Bhogali Bihu as a community festival.

The Bihu function at Nehrubali this year started with hoisting of the flag by the organisation�s president, i.e., by dramatist and former president of Nagaon Zila Sahitya Sabha Dr Dilip Borooah in the presence of working president-cum-Nagaon MLA Rupok Sarma.

As a part of the itinerary, a cultural procession was taken out which marched through the main thoroughfares of the town on January 15. During the celebration of Bihu from January 13 to 17, a number of competitions were organised. A toy train made available by the Indian Railways attracted children and others at Nehrubali.

Meanwhile, a Preeti Sanmilan associated with the Nagaon Bhogali Bihu programme will be held on January 17 where academician Dr Amarjyoti Choudhury, writer Dr Nanda Singh Borkola and actor Pranjal Saikia, besides chief patron Rajen Gohain will grace the occasion.
