Bihar Governor, organisations condole death

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, Nov 9 � Governor of Bihar, Devanand Konwar in a message here has condoled the demise of music maestro Dr Bhupen Hazarika.

In his message, the Governor stated that �the passing away of Dr Bhupen Hazarika is not just the saddest news to me but also to millions of his musically frenzied fans and emotional and intellectual admirers across the country from the Kameng frontier to Mumbai�s glittering audiences.

�Born on the banks of the Brahmaputra, Bhupen Hazarika imagined himself creatively quite early in his career as a dauntless swimmer at the confluence of the oceans of humanity. His death marks the end of an extremely rich, evocative and vibrant era of Assamese performing arts right from IPTA�s lilting music with captivating cadences to the full-throated sonorous welcome of India to the crusader of apartheid in Africa Dr Nelson Mandela in Kolkata.

�A mind so ignited with a revolutionary spark and divine discontent as that of Hazarika cannot naturally be confined to one culture and one climate like those of his Mark Twain and Maxim Gorky and Mirza Ghalib. The icon of Assamese silver screen with creating a rainbow musical spectrum composed with his sharpened awareness of global human culture and environmental forces moulding and shaping life across time and space, has drawn the curtain of his eventful life finally.

�When the voice and myriad tunes of Hazarika would fade away, his thought-provoking couplets and rhythms would ever vibrate in mind�s screens of millions�, ha concluded.

Art of Living: Art of Living founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has condoled the demise of Bhupen Hazarika. He said, � Bhupen Hazarika was a legend in Indian music and a pride of our nation. He was not only a musician but a deep spiritual being. His valuable contribution in the field of music as well as in visualising the art and culture of the North-east of India will always be remembered. He will continue to live among us in the form of his soulful compositions which will stay on to touch the hearts of many.�

Assam Gramin Bank: The Co-ordination Committee of Assam Gramin Vikash Bank Officers� and Employees� Association paid floral tributes at the portrait of legendary Dr Bhupen Hazarika, at a condolence meeting held here at the premises of the head office of the bank.
