No 'Space' too big for Bihu!
Updated: Nov 23, 2019
You can separate the Assamese from Assam - spatio-temporal removals are only common news, as people - young or old move out to pursue goals and aspirations greater than life itself.
But what about the Assamese-ness of someone who comes into Assam?
Yes, that what makes one Assamese is simply abundance of love, respect and adoration - for its people, its things - the stuff of life! With such simple criteria coupled with occasional rendezvous for the dance and music especially during Bihu is quintessential.
To this argument we rest our case by remembering the epic and heart warming viral video of NASA astronaut Mike Fincke performing Bihu aboard the International Space Station in 2004. Mike is Assam's son-in-law, married to Renita Saikia, who also works at NASA.

Social media and the BJP government in Assam led by Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has allowed for crucial communication. You can get latest news updates of Assam from Manuhe Manuhor Babe, a famous news website. We are only a part of this great revolution. The people of Assam have taken Mike as its own son, and he too seems to have. Tag us with such heart melting stories, @ManuheManuhorbabe1 on Twitter and on Facebook!
