Etymology The term Nalbari derives from the two words Nal and Bari. Nal refers to a particular variety of reed, while Bari is an enclosed ground within a plantation or garden. Raas Music Festival The annual Raas Music Festival is a significant cultural and spiritual festival of North East India celebrated in Assam at the end of the year, generally in November. The festivities go on for 11 days in the premises of the Hari Mandir. ?Raas? essentially translates to dancing in delight, and is often associated with Lord Krishna - a symbol of love, happiness and beauty. And indeed the festival epitomises this - by transforming the little town of Nalbari into a festive extravaganza and attracting thousands of visitors every year. The festival was first believed to have been celebrated in the year 1933 in the Nalbari Purana Natkhola with the contributions of the late Amar Kundu, Naren Basu and others. The venue was later shifted to the present Hari Mandir to accommodate the growing number of visitors. In the earlier years, only upper caste Brahmins made the religious and other idols to be showcased at the festival, and people from the lower castes were forbidden to do so. The main puja mandap or hall at Hari Mandir has a beautiful idol of Radha-Krishna where the main Raas pooja takes place. In addition, there are several other temporary stalls with idols depicting a varied range of events - from events in the life of Lord Krishna to mechanized versions of events like the Orissa floods, the killing of Phoolan Devi and the bombing of the World Trade Centre, to name a few. The Raas festival, according to officials,is soon set to become the state?s tourism festival.
