The Boisabi festival one of the most significant and biggest festivals for the communities of the Chattogram Hill Tract was celebrated in the capital with great joy and enthusiasm today (April 12).

This Boisabi festival is known as Baisu in Tripura language, Sangraing in Marma language and Biju in Chakma-Tanchangya language.

The celebration began through young women of Chakma and Tripura communities in the two districts immersing flowers in the Changi river and different canals on ‘Phul Biju’, the first day of the three-day traditional Biju festival.

People from different communities of Chattogram Hill Tracts living in the capital participated in the festival by dressing up in fancy dress.

Later, men, women and children floated flowers in the water of Ramana Lake, wishing for the peace and prosperity of the country, and the festival ended.
