BIHU: this IS the most popular folk dance of Assam. The people of Assam are very proud of its unique position among
all other such dances of India. Except Bhangra (the popular folk dance of Punjab), no other folk dance in India can compete with the rhythmic exuberance of the Bihu
CHANG BUNGALOW: when the British established their tea plantations in mid-19th century they quickly built comfortable bungalows designed to make
life for the Saab & Memsaab. A remarkable design feature of these lavish structures is that they are raised on stilts, so as to keep the house cool by allowing the
breeze to blow underneath and to keep both water and animals out! Chang in the local language means “raised on stilts” and hence the name.
