Bogali Bihu is a harvest festival celebrated in the northeastern state of Assam to mark the end of harvesting season in the month of Mangh (January-February). It is also known as Mangh Bihu. Uruka is celebrated on the eve of this occasion. A bonfire (Meji) is lit for the ceremonial conclusion and prayer to the God of Fire. During this occasion, people enjoy traditional Assamese vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies. However, due to the bird flu, the state government banned import of poultry.
