Here comes Rongdwip Troupe to hit the land of Bohag

GUWAHATI: Jadu Deka can’t waste even an hour these days. Same it is in the cases of Jitu, Lakheswar, Pranab, Bitupan et al since Rongali Bihu is on the threshold. Only a couple of hours is left. With traditional Assamese Dhul on their shoulders they are busy with the preparation of huchori performance to mark the most vaunted spring festival commencing from Saturday.

Achyut, the holder of the buffalo horn pipe is all set to mesmerize the onlookers in the nook and corner of the state in the Bihu Huchori performance in the house yards, shopping mall yards. Munna is well prepared with his flute like Dulu with his traditional cymbals to add huge value in the performance.

Christened as Rongdwip Huchori Dol under the banner of Swastik Solutions, the troupe is all prepared to hit the season showcasing the rich traditional culture with all performance in the entire festive Assamese month.

A vehicle with beautiful pictures of traditional Assamese instruments, spring time flowers engraved on it is also ready to carry the troupe across the state soaking in the joy of the annual festival marking the height of the queen of the seasons.

Others in the troupe Dipu, Kangkan, Surajit, Arup, and Ranjit are engrossed in the rehearsal of traditional Bihu dance since they have just a couple of hours.

Talking to Assam Times, which has pledged logistic support to the troupe, the never-say-die souls of Assamese culture said invitations for performing the traditional Assamese Bihu huchori are pouring on. Instant invitations and requests have forced them to keep changing the schedule on every passing hours.
