GOLAKGANJ, Dec 27 � No. 14, Ballyganj Circular Road in Kolkata, West Bengal, presently known as Pramathesh Baruah Sarani, named after the legendary person of Indian cinema, popular actor Pramathesh Baruah of Gauripur. His contributions towards Indian cinema are well-known. His dreams took birth, in Ballyganj Circular Road. King Pratap Chandra Baruah and queen Bhavani Priya, purchased one of the largest buildings from a nawab for the study of their son Raja Prabhat Chandra Baruah and the building was named as �Gauripur House�. Due to the apathetic attitude of Assam and West Bengal Governments, one notorious promoter sold the house by using false stamp paper to another promoter. The self declared owner of Gauripur House (which had got the tag of heritage building in 1998) then demolished the Gauripur House completely and has been busy in making flats in that place. But such deeds of the promoter never ever reached the ears of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation.
Though queen Bhavani Priya had purchased this house for the study of their son Raja Prabhat Chandra Baruah, later on two sons of Raja Prabhat Chandra Baruah namely Pramathesh Baruah, Prakritish Baruah (Lalji) and Nihar Bala Baruah and Nilima Baruah (sister of Pramathesh Baruah), Pratima Baruah Pandey also � studied in this house. Afterwards many brilliant students from west Assam were given opportunity to continue their higher studies by residing in the house. Residing in Gauripur House many brilliant students made a name for themselves. The names of Dr Amal Baruah (Guwahati), Dharani Choudhury (Guwahati), famous theatre person Phani Sharma, Mohd. Ali may be mentioned here.
Prabhat Chandra Baruah�s three sons namely Pramathesh Baruah, Prakritish Baruah (Lalji) and Pranobesh Baruah got the ownership of Gauripur House by the way of inheritance from their father.
After getting the news of the complete demolition of Gauripur House completely, Prabir Baruah, son of Prakritish Baruah (Lalji) went to Kolkata. After getting in touch with Kolkata Municipal Corporation, he came to know that the West Bengal Government had declared Gauripur House as a heritage building in 1998. But surprisingly the Government did not contact any one from the Royal family in Gauripur (Assam). Prabir Baruah, deeply shocked after watching all these events said that the Gauripur House had a great contribution in making of colossuses in art and culture. The demolition of this house is a great loss for everyone. Prabir Baruah has written to the mayor of West Bengal Municipal Corporation to reconstruct the Gauripur House.
