72nd Sahitya Sabha session comes to end

By HARAMOHAN BARMAN

BISWARATNA DR BHUPEN HAZARIKA SAMANNAY KSHETRA, Feb 5 � With more than one instance to remember, the five-day- long Barpeta Road session of the Asam Sahitya Sabha formally came to an end today.

As expected, people of Barpeta�and Baksa districts in general and Barpeta Road in particular attended the event in large numbers. They buried all their differences and made an all-out effort�for the success of the session. Had the schedule of the second phase of Panchayat election been different, the gathering on the ground would have been far bigger.

Unity and integrity among the people of the country was emphasised during the session. Dignitaries from different parts of India and from Nepal were invited. Most of them were elated over the presence of crowds at a literary meet and termed it as a unique feature.

During the cultural evenings, every day folk songs and dances from Rajasthan in the West to the Manipur in the East were presented in a grand manner. People got immense opportunities to acquaint themselves with the folk cultures of many parts of the country through this session.

This part of the State comprising Barpeta and Baksa districts are inhabited by a large number of ethnic groups such as Bodos, Koch Rajbongshis, Adivasis and the migrant Muslims. People of all these groups contributed their best towards the success of the session. The Asomiya Marwary Samaj assumed all responsibilities inside the kitchen and the dining hall.

With the rush of people almost all the days, business establishments in the trade fair of the session could do brisk business. Participants in the Sobha Brahma and Guru Prasad Das memorial Science and Art Exhibition seemed happy with the number of visitors. Book sellers also expressed satisfaction over the turnout.

But the session failed in adopting a single resolution for the future of Assam, its language, literature and culture. The 700-strong delegates ended their meet by discussing issues of internal controversies. They did not spare time to deliberate about the burning problems faced by the people of the State. Symposia on literary and intellectual topics were very time-bound and under such tight schedule most of the speakers had to cut short their speeches due to lack of time.
