Locking the Horns: The Gladiator Bull Fights of Bihu Festival

13 Kms from Sibsagar town is Simaluguri Station, the gateway to the historic Sibsagar town. What is so historic about Sibsagar? The Ahom dynasty? The architectural buildings, the tea gardens? Well something more!! The ferocious bull fights. Today is Rongali Bihu, the New Year in the state of Assam. The entire state is immersed today in celebrations and this will continue for a month, so I thought this is the ideal time to write this post.
