�The Assamese society will always remain grateful to the contribution of artists like Benu Misra and Ramen Baruah,� he said.
Receiving the award, artist Benu Misra said that though the modern science technology has brought a change with unique facilities, it has dragged our feelings on life to darkness. �We the Assamese people are now a days living in a haze and dilemma,� he said.
In his speech, Ramen Baruah appreciated the works of �Chatok� which have always been influencing the artists of the society.
