By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 21 � Brihattar Panjabari Sahitya Sabha has urged the State Government to extend full financial assistance to Asam Sahitya Sabha in order to enable it to renovate the Asam Sahitya Sabha Bhawan at Kohima, the State capital of Nagaland, as a heritage structure and also as an embodiment of Naga-Assamese solidarity.

The Brihattar Panjabari Sahitya Sabha, at its meeting held on Sunday under the presidentship of veteran journalist DN Chakravartty, also appealed to the people of the State to give due recognition to the great contributions of litterateur Padmanath Gohain Baruah who set up Kohima Sahitya Sabha in 1895 � 22 years before the establishment of Asam Sahitya Sabha.

Addressing the meeting, Narayan Chandra Bora, retired Additional Secretary of Nagaland Assembly who headed Kohima Sahitya Sabha for 17 years, said that the elderly section of the educated Naga people still recognised and revered Gohain Baruah as the harbinger of modern development in the Naga society.

Bora mentioned how 16 distinct tribes of Nagaland had accepted Nagamese as the lingua franca and how the common people as well as the senior political leaders were still grateful to the Assamese society for socio-cultural development of Nagaland.

Bora recalled how the Chief Ministers and several political leaders of Nagaland used to invite Sahitya Sabha members to perform Hussori in their houses during the Bohag Bihu festivities.

The meeting also paid tributes to the memory of music maestro Dr Bhupen Hazarika.

Deba Prasad Talukdar, Ajida Begum, Pratul Sarma and Deepali Barthakur presented poems in praise of Dr Hazarika. Bhanu Medhi, Urmila Chakravarty and Deba Prasad Talukdar presented several songs of Dr Hazarika.

Mahendra Bora read out the Assamese translation of a short story by great Russian author Anton Chekov. Madhuri Bhuyan read out an article on the importance of festivals in promoting national integration.

Chakravartty, in his speech, analysed the factors behind the greatness of Dr Hazarika.
