What is Global Bihu ?

It is a techno-cultural evening on a certain day of April / May every year, where attempts are made to perform Bihu festivities (songs, dances, discussions, presentations) from Assamese Diasporas across the globe in a singular mode. Communities residing elsewhere are scheduled for presentation and web cast the event LIVE by streaming video & audio into a predefined website to be picked up centrally in Guwahati for co-ordination, arrangement, center stage exposure and inputs to satellite TV channels. The central unit at Guwahati stages LIVE inputs so received from across the world in giant screens along with local presentation to create an envelop of events back into the Internet making it the largest celebration of a festival on the web.

Rules

Ideally the following agenda seems comfortable: (a) Introduction by a member of the location about the participants, location and a short history of activities. (b) A bihu recital in any form (Song, Husori, Group or otherwise), (c) An individual or group number (d) A concluding speech or dance. The background of the location and the dresses of participants  must have the look and feel of an Assamese. Ideally the backdrop should indicate the name of the location and/or the organization instituting the program. Not more than one camera may be used, which should be kept upright in a stand (not in the palm or otherwise) to avoid jerks and projected from front at the average height level of the performers in the same plane. There should not be any lateral motion, panning and zooming. The video/audio has to be fed either using our web conferencing module as provided or Skype.
