The festival lasts for seven days and they are known as Chot Bihu, Goru Bihu, Manuh Bihu, Kutum Bihu, Senehi Bihu, Mela Bihu and Chera Bihu. The first day of Bihu is dedicated to cows, and on the morning of this day, people take their cows to a lake or river and give them a wash. The second day is when people dress up and exchange gifts. The third day is always dedicated to the worship of deities. The fourth day, called Bohagi Bidai or Phato Bihu is the final day of the festival, marked by wrapping up the celebrations.
Bihu is observed at almost the same time as Baisakhi in Punjab, Poila Baisakh in Bengal, Puthandu in Tamil Nadu, and Vishu in Kerala. Here are some wishes for the day.
