By Correspondent

DHEMAJI, Nov 6 - Mising Language Day, to commemorate recognition of the Mising language, was celebrated at Bengenagara Murang Ghar premises at Machkhowa in Dhemaji on October 30 last with a day-long programme under the joint aegis of seven branch units of Mising Agom Kebang (Mising Sahitya Sabha) of Machkhowa and Sissimukh areas here with pomp and gaiety.

The celebration began with a cleanliness drive at 6 am followed by a programme of sapling plantation initiated by retired teacher Muktinath Pegu. At 7 am, the flag on the occasion was hoisted by Pabitra Kumar Mili, president of the celebration committee. Subsequently, smriti tarpan was done by Dipak Narah, central executive member of Mising Agom Kebang (MAK). Later, a quiz competition was organised among the primary-level pupils in the area.

An open meeting on the occasion was held at 11 am under the presidentship of retired teacher Hem Chandra Mili. The objectives were stated by Hiren Mili. The meeting was inaugurated by Paramananda Chayengia, president of Mising Bane Kebang and chairman of Mising Autonomous Council.

In his inaugural speech, Chayengia called upon the Mising people to learn to love their mother tongue. He also suggested them to use and study their language with heart and soul.

The open meeting was attended by Gobin Taid, president of Mising Sahitya Sabha as the appointed speaker. Addressing the large gathering, Taid said, �recognition of the Mising language by the Government is the harvest of our long-drawn movement. Mising language was recognised by the Assam Government on October 30, 1985 and still we have a lot of liabilities to make our language a rich and distinguished one.�

In this reference, he regretted that a good number among the 250 Mising teachers appointed in various LP schools, have already left their service. He appealed to the Mising intellectuals as well as other linguists in Assam to think about the prosperity of the Mising language. Bidyut Bikash Senapati, general secretary of Tiwa Sahitya Sabha also spoke on the occasion as an appointed speaker.

The open session was also addressed by several dignitaries, including Manik Chandra Taid, retired principal of Machkhowa College, who in his speech laid stress on overall progress of the Mising community by adequately adapting to the present-day changes. In this regard, he also urged the Mising people to follow the right religious path, over and above their Apong culture.

In the meeting, a souvenir titled Sibug was formally released by Nabin Kaman, Planning Officer of the Mising Autonomous Council.
