By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 23 - Passionate love when transformed into love towards all living organisms and finally sublimated to the deepest attachment to the Supreme Being, endows a man with the bliss of enlightenment and happiness.

This observation was made by Dr Surendra Mohan Mahanta, retired professor of Cotton College while addressing the 219th sitting of the Brihattar Panjabari Sahitya Sabha (BPSS) on Sunday.

Addressing the meeting presided over by mathematician Dr Bijoy Krishna Deva Sharma, Dr Mahanta referred to the life of a locally known person � how he could transform his love for the young girl during his youth into committed loyalty towards the society.

�In the same way, one can transform one�s love or loyalty towards one�s own country into loyalty towards the entire humanity,� he added.

Mafizuddin Ahmed, secretary of BPSS, in his report, referred to the directive of the Asam Sahitya Sabha on the celebration of its 99th anniversary on December 26 and 27 with daylong programmes.

Madhuri Bhuyan Kalita, secretary of the Alochana Chakra, read out the proceedings of the last meeting. Atul Tamuly, in his article, dwelt on the contributions of Ambikagiri Roychoudhry and mentioned how he could inspire lakhs of youths of Assam to uphold the cause of the Assamese people against all hazards.

Anu Mahanta, Papori Mahanta and Usharani Deka presented Borgeet. Senior journalist DN Chakravartty also spoke on the occasion.

Dr Sharma, in his presidential remark, stressed the need for the Assamese people to shrug off their sense of diffidence and gain confidence to assert themselves in the rest of the country. Nagen Bhuyan, president of BPSS, appealed to the members to join the campaign for enlisting new members and also for raising a fund of Rs 1 lakh for the Asam Sahitya Sabha.
