By Correspondent

TEZPUR, Nov 19 - The Bargaon Gudi Boro Thunlai Afad (the Bargaon unit of Boro Sahitya Sabha) celebrated the 69th foundation day of the literary body earlier this week at Bargaon Sanjari village under Thelamara police station in Sonitpur district with a two-day programme.

The event concluded with an open session attended by several noted personalities. They included academician Biswajit Boro, Dr Faguna Barmahalia from the Department of Boro, Gauhati University, social workers Indrakanta Boro, Numal Chandra Daimary, Liladhar Boro and others.

Addressing the gathering as the special speaker of the occasion, Biswajit Boro said a language mirrors art, culture and heritage of a nation or a race, and, as far as the Boro language is concerned, iconic Boro leaders like Joy Bhadra Hagjer, Satish Chandra Basumatary, Gauri Kanta Brahma, Ramdas Basumatary and others were able to materialize this with their profound dedication.

He stressed that the Boro language should be developed and used in a proper manner. �But, we have a lot of problems in our society � both from inside as well as outside. Amidst this, we will have to dedicate ourselves in promoting our language and culture,� he said.

�However, unfortunately, some individuals holding major portfolios of the sacred organization are being politically motivated and involved in certain unwanted activities, thus maligning the image of the organization. They should rather dedicate themselves to creating good literature, thereby shaping a good society,� he said and urged the Boro people to develop work culture to survive as a race.

It is pertinent to mention here that the Boro Sahitya Sabha has been working in the field of promoting the Boro language and literature since its inception on November 16, 1952 under the leadership of Joy Bhadra Hagjer at Basugaon in Kokrajhar, comprising representatives of Assam, West Bengal, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Tripura as well as Nepal. After a prolonged struggle, the language was introduced as a medium of instruction at the primary level in 1963 and at the secondary level in 1968. Boro has been recognized as one of the Major Indian Languages in Gauhati University, Dibrugarh University and North Eastern Hill University. In 1985, it was recognized as an associated state official language of Assam.
