Jatiya Chetana Divas observed at Barpeta

By Correspondent

BARPETA, Oct 1 � �Invasion of Western tradition into Assamese culture has threatened the existence of Assamese culture and if it is not prevented it may dislodge our culture,� said Dr Binita Bora Dev Choudhury . Addressing a seminar on the topic �Threat to Assamese Culture and Means to Solve it� in the context of globalisation held on the occasion of 10th Jatiya Chetana Divas organised by Sadou Assam Lekhika Samaroh in association with the Barpeta Lekhka Samaroh here, Dr Choudhury lamented that most people have accepted the intrusion of western tradition into our society very easily. She urged the conscious section of the society to be more cautious before it is too late.

The seminar was inaugurated by Annada Saikia, advisor and it was presided over by Binita Datta, chairperson of the association. Akshay Kumar Mishra, renowned academician and literateur also spoke in the seminar.

Padmashree Hem Bharali was conferred Swahid Kanaklata award in the function. Accepting the honour the veteran Gandhian said that to receive an honour or prize should not be the aim of a man. The aim of a human being should be to acquire sufficient knowledge to become a man in the true sense of the term. �I want to explore more and more knowledge by living in the society of human beings,� she concluded.

A souvenir published on this occasion edited jointly by Hiran Saikia Lahkar and Kanchan Das was formally released by Nirupama Mishra.

Jatiya Chetana Divas has been observed by the Lekhika Samaroh since 2002 to commemorate the extreme sacrifice of the freedom movement martyr Kanaklata Baruah on the 20th of September 1942.

The day-long programme this year at Barpeta was formally kicked off by Binita Datta chairperson of the association with the hoisting of the association flag at Ambikagiri Banikanta Bhawan, the office of Barpeta Sahitya Sabha. Homage to the martyrs was paid by Manorama Das, ex-chairperson, Barpeta Lekhika Samaroh.
