Furthermore "Everyone wears new clothes and enjoys the sadhya. What we generally miss here are the crackers that we burst back home." Further the Assamese New Year Rongali Bihu also fell on Monday and the small Assamese community in Dubai has planned a get-together on April 26 to celebrate the festival and make the younger generation aware about their traditions, said Aswini Borkotoky, who owns a car leasing company.
