DEMOW: COVID-19 dampened Bihu celebration throughout the State. On April 13, which was Garu Bihu, people washed their cows. On April 14 was Manuh Bihu. This year people could not wear new clothes but they sought the blessings of their elders and ate delicious delicacies. On April 15 was Paila Baishak for the Bengali community. Due to the lockdown, Ganesh Puja could not be done in the shops. After the State Government allowed liquor shops in the State to open from April 13 from 10 am to 5 pm, long queues were seen in front of the liquor shops in Demow. On the other hand, following the CM’s appeal to light an earthen lamp at 6 pm on April 14, people of Demow lit earthen lamps in front of their houses.
