“At the wedding, we had fun with all my cousins and
other relatives eating and doing everything together.” Aarti
said, “Why don’t we do something like this in school? Let
us also have some fun together.” Rehana asked.
“I have an idea,” David said. “Why don’t we have a
class party ? Then we can also eat and have fun together.”
“We have parties in our colony whenever there is a festival.
We collect money from everyone for the party. We cook

of grass and bamboo before the feast tonight.
Tanvir – Yes, today is Uruka. The whole village will eat together.

helping with all the work.

things. The bora rice has been soaked. The whole village is
For the teacher: Magh Bihu is celebrated on 14 and 15 of January

and have a community feast. Bora is a common variety of rice used in Assam.
These are ‘sticky’ rice. Encourage children to locate Assam on the map.
