Hazarika ashes brought to Arunachal

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Nov 14 � Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki today brought here an urn containing the ashes of legendary musician Bhupen Hazarika.

Honouring the deep attachment of Hazarika with the State, the Assam Government had consented to hand over the ashes following a request by Arunachal Pradesh Literary Society (APLS) that the cultural icon�s ashes be immersed in the major rivers of Arunachal Pradesh.

On reaching Naharlagun heliport, the urn was taken to Jawaharlal Nehru State Museum in a decorated vehicle with people singing traditional songs.

The ashes will be kept at the Museum till tomorrow for the people to pay their homage, official sources said.

The ashes would be sent to different places and immersed in major rivers � Siang, Subansiri, Kameng, Lohit, Tirap and especially in Dibang river as Hazarika was born at Bolung village on the bank of the river, the sources said.

A part of the ashes had been immersed at Parashuram Kund, a pilgrimage site, in Lohit district yesterday. � PTI

Hazarika produced, directed, and composed the music for the State�s first Hindi feature film in colour � Meri Maa Mera Dharam � in 1977.

He also directed a colour documentary for the Arunachal Pradesh Government on tribal folk songs and dances entitled �For Whom The Sun Shines� in 1974. In 1977, the State Government awarded him a Gold Medal for his contribution towards tribal welfare, and upliftment of tribal culture through cinema and music.

Influenced by the natural beauty of Arunachal Pradesh (then NEFA) and its rich culture, Hazarika translated his feelings in most of his early songs � Hamara Arunachal, Burha Luit (Lohit), Tirap simanta rupar nai anta, man khoney khoney binay, Asom aamar rupahi gunar o nai sesh Bharatare purba deshar surjya ootha desh, Siangare Gallong Luitarey Khamti, kata jawanar mrityu hol (referring to 1962 Chinese aggression). � PTI
