Golden jubilee of Tezpur Sahitya Sabha ends

By Correspondent

TEZPUR, June 19 � �Tezpur Sahitya Sabha has created many writers and litterateurs during the last 50 years of its existence. I feel that the completion of 50 years of a particular organisation reflects its honour and the society and the people related with it. We feel honoured by the platform provided by Tezpur Sahitya Sabha. However, it is a matter of regret that despite having many talented litterateurs, we have to remain satisfied with only three special figures - Bishnu Prasad Rabha, Natasurya Phani Sarma and Rup Konwar Jyoti Prasad Agarwala,� said the president of the Sonitpur Sahitya Sabha and noted writer, Dr Sadhinata Mahanta while addressing a large gathering at open session of the three-day concluding programme of the year-long golden jubilee celebration of Tezpur Sahitya Sabha today.

She also urged the new writers to dedicate themselves to fulfilling social obligations through their creations.

Releasing a book, Bivinna Kothar Kanon, written by Mrinalini Chetia, the secretary of Asam Sahitya Sabha, Dr Paramananda Rajbangshi said that though the issue of the problems faced by the society due to globalization and fast modernization has been discussed in the mass media and among intellectuals, the apex literary body is happy many books and literary works have been penned by newcomers to literature.

The programme, held under the aegis of Tezpur Sahitya Sabha president Dr Suresh Kumar Arya, was attended by Asam Sahitya Sabha president Dr Dhrubajyoti Bora, Sonitpur DC Lalit Gogoi, local MLA Rajen Barthakur and ex-Education Minister Brindaban Goswami among others. The Sonitpur DC released a souvenir, Silalipi, while Junuka, a compilation of translated folk tales of Rasaraj Lakshminath Bezbaroa was released by Asam Sahitya Sabha president Dr Dhrubajyoti Bora. Releasing the book, he said that Laksminath Bezbaroa is a symbol of pride for Assamese literature. �Lakshminath Bezbaroa (1864-1938) was a literary stalwart. During the 19th century Indian Renaissance, he linked Assam and the Assamese people on different aspects of life through his literary creations. He was an iconic prose writer, poet, playwright, philosophical thinker, writer of satire and humour, specialist in folk tales and critic of social discrimination. Moreover, he was also noted for his liberal nationalist thinking amid the British colonial economy. He was also a pioneer in the studies on Sankaradeva, the great medieval reformer and social scientist, in the light of modern rationalism. Although Lakshminath Bezbaroa was a writer with romantic influences, but as a scholar, he occupies pride of place in modern Assamese nationalism. He was not merely an academic scholar, but his genius earned for him the titles of Sahityarathi and Rasaraj,� he said.

Earlier, the vice president of the Tezpur Sahitya Sabha, Hemanta Kumar Baruah, in his welcome address, highlighted the history of Tezpur Sahitya Sabha. The Tezpur Sahitya Sabha platform has created many people including litterateurs, artists and socially responsible persons who have contributed towards building a bold Assamese nation.
