Why is the celebration celebrated? Kati Bihu 2022
Given that the granaries are typically empty and there isn’t much to eat at this time of year, Kati Bihu is also known as Kongali, meaning “poor.” The celebrations of Kati Bihu are more solemn in tone than those of the other Bihus (Bhogali or Magh Bihu and Rongali or Bohag Bihu), which are more flashy. Various portions of the home are lit up with lights or Sasaki (candles) to commemorate this Bihu. In the courtyard, close to the revered Tulsi plant, the main lamp is lit.
For the full month of Kati, the plant is cleansed and set on an earthen platform called a Tulsi Bheti, and prayers and offerings are offered to the Goddess Tulsi for the well-being of the family and a fair crop.
Farmers light a special kind of lamp called Akaxh Banti (Sky candle), which is placed high on the tips of tall bamboo poles, in the paddy fields. It is believed that lighting these lamps will help ancestors find their way to heaven, but they also serve a practical purpose by luring insects to the flame and their demise, which keeps the crops healthy.
