AHSEC to Introduce Bihu as Elective Subject in Assam HS Courses

The Assam Higher Secondary Education Council, popularly known as AHSEC is all set to introduce the indigenous and popular folk dance Bihu as an elective subject for the higher secondary course from the coming year.

The announcement came a day after several educationists came together in a workshop to discuss ways to preserve Bihu in the city.

In this regard AHSEC chairman Dayananda Borgohain said "Bihu is the only festival that can unite people, irrespective of their religion, caste or creed. It's a vital characteristic of the vibrant culture revolving around the Bihu festivity. But off late, there has been a lot of concern over distortions in Bihu celebrations and the accusing finger is pointed towards the youth. That's why we have decided to introduce Bihu in the academic curriculum."

Students choosing Bihu as their elective subject in HS courses, would have to appear for a 100-mark question paper in the final examinations. The paper would comprise both theory and practical segments. However, the segregation of marks for both the segments is yet to be decided.
