BOKAKHAT, Sept 25 - Hema Prabha Chutia, a pious lady as well as an expert weaver weaved Naamghosha, a religious book of Sri Madhavadeva, which was formally inaugurated at Kamargaon on September 16.
Before inaugurating the 200 feet long and two feet wide book, Sobhan Saikia the retired Vice-Principal of Kamargaon College chanted the stanzas of the Bhagawata and exhibited it spiritually with deepest respect. It is to be noted that earlier, Chutia had woven the Gunamala Puthi of Sankaradeva on her handloom.
It must be referred to here that Hema Prabha, an inhabitant of Fotika Chowa Abhoypuriya Gaon of Moran had fabricated the writings of the Gunamala Puthi at her handloom with utmost care and effort. Leading journalist Mahen Saikia and others had felicitated her earlier for her effort.
Expressing her gratitude and satisfaction, Chutia said that she felt very happy over the response from all sections of the society. She said that it was her long-standing desire to fabricate the Gunamala Puthi and Naamghosha on her loom and by the grace of God, she could somehow materialise her dream. Chutia started weaving Gunamala on July 12, 2013 and completed it on April 14, 2014. She demonstrated her product at the 73rd session of the Asam Sahitya Sabha at Kaliabor. The entire woven work, on a 80 feet long and 1.5 feet broad cloth was furnished with muga yarn and black coloured woollen thread were used to highlight the lines of the stanzas. Chutia then made a fabric by interlacing yarn the Naamghosha, popularly known as Hazari ghosha, a collection of 1000 stanzas of Mahapurush Madhabadeva where she used self-spun muga and endi yarns.
In addition, a symposium was held on �Dihaa naam and Naamghosha� which was conducted by Chandra Kanta Das, principal of Badulipar College. Civil Engineer of Kaziranga University, Prasanta Kumar Bordoloi attended the symposium as chief resource person. Dr Ranjan Kumar Mahanta, superintendent of Swami Vivekananda Hospital of NRL formally released a book Numaligarh written by journalist Mahen Saikia.
