Guwahati weeps as Bhupenda returns home

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 7 � Moi Jetia Ai Jibonor Maya Eri Gusi Jaam � He is beyond all that now. The musical icon went away with a smile, but left all others in tears.

None had the words to express the void, the intense pangs in their hearts, and Guwahati stood in silence to bid adieu to the man who created his own epoch. People from all walks of life wanted their dearest Bhupenda to know that even in death they were with him � as a mark of love and respect, Guwahatians in all the residential and market areas in the city paid floral tribute to the living legend.

The All Assam Publishers and Booksellers Association has decided to dedicate its 13th North East Book Fair 2011 slated to begin on December 14 to Bhupenda as a tribute. The organisers will observe December 15 as Bhupendar Din at its fair venue. Fans of the bard will remember his life and contribution and listen to Bhupenda�s immortal songs.

Snatches of the songs loved by the icon floated in the air. The passersby could not but stop for a while. Robin Das, working in a private firm had to stop at the Wireless bus stop for a minute. He offered a flower before the picture of Bhupenda hung up in a makeshift arrangement for paying tribute. He was visibly moved.

�We love Bhupenda. He is always with us,� said Deepak, who has a pan shop at Wireless. All the small traders of Wireless and all passersby paid their tribute by offering flowers and lighting candles.

Likewise, the same mood was prevalent across the city. At Chandmari, the pavement served as a platform to shower love and respect on the legend. Posters and cutouts of the maestro adorned the pavement here and everywhere.

People waited for hours on the pavements. They never felt any tiredness because their hearts were heavy with grief. Senior citizens braving their ailments were waiting to say goodbye. It was the end of an era.
