By Correspondent

JORHAT, June 12 � Noted lyricist Nagen Bora passed away on Tuesday evening due to some internal infections at the age of 66. Though he was admitted into a private hospital here after an accident, he was later shifted to Jorhat Mission Hospital where he breathed his last.

Bora�s demise has caused a �bigger loss� in the realm of Assamese literature. �A lyricist like Nagenda is rare in the State who composed more than 3,000 songs in Assamese,� said Debajit Bora, an executive member of Asam Sahitya Sabha. �It is a matter of sadness that he breathed his last without getting any royal patronage.�

Bora was honoured with �Geet Ratna� title by Sanskritik Mahasabha. Most of his songs expressed his deep patriotism and bigger sense of regional importance. Among them, Akou jodi jabo lage Saraighatoloi � a compilation of patriotic songs � sensitized all classes of citizens in the State during 1980s and 1990s.
