The meeting was held under the aegis of the Kamrup Mahanagar Sahitya Sabha with the cooperation of North Guwahati Sahitya Sabha and Rongmahal Sahitya Sabha unit.

The flag hoisting was performed by veteran journalist and an ex-professor, Bhairab Sarmah.

In his speech, while welcoming the guests and others attending the function, Sarmah narrated how North Guwahati was the birth place of five ex-Sahitya Sabha presidents (including Karmavir Bordoloi of Asom Sahitya Sanmiloni). His speech was followed by display by a band party of Saint Anthony School of the area. The offer of floral tributes and lighting of earthen lamps before the life-size portrait of late Choudhury was initiated by ex-principal Manindra Kumar Baruah. A local NGO, Binayak Ashadeep, supervised the programme.

The reminiscent meeting was anchored by Madhusudan Medhi, general secretary of North Guwahati Sahitya Sabha. The meeting held at the college auditorium was presided over by Dr Paramananda Rajbongshi. Rajbongshi along with various members of both district and central committees were introduced to the gathering and were honoured with phulam gamochas by the members of the reception committee.

In his speech, the president of the reception committee, Bhairab Sarmah explained how North Guwahati was a fertile land where several luminaries in the field of education, sports, politics, literature, music, art and culture etc., were born. Sarmah narrated how he was closely associated with the veteran multifaceted genius since his childhood. The meeting was addressed by Monindra Kumar Boruah, Dr Amarjyoti Choudhury, Dr Anjanjyoti Choudhury, Dr Umesh Deka, and Riju Hazarika, president, Kamrup District Sahitya Sabha as distinguished guests. The speakers, while dwelling on various qualities of the head and heart of late Choudhury elucidated on how much he loved his fellowmen and taught them to laugh heartily.

Dr Amarjyoti Choudhury, while narrating his closeness with his father stated that staging of dramas in his memory would be a show of respect to his father.

In the meeting, Pompi Choudhury, a teenaged grand-daughter of late Choudhury, recited a poem narrating the contributions of her grandfather to the society.

Earlier, the Abhaypur Mahila Samiti group presented a diha naam which delighted the listeners. In his presidential address, Dr Rajbongshi congratulated the organisers for making the meeting a success. He expressed satisfaction at the move of the NG Sahitya Sabha branch to erect four busts of four ex-Sahitya Sabha presidents whose paternal birth place was North Guwahati. Dr Rajbongshi also promised to help in this regard as far as possible.

At the end, Utpal Choudhury offered vote of thanks to all concerned.
