Museum named after tea planter at DU

By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, May 29 - A museum named after Late Malbhog Baruah � the proprietor of Rajabheta Tea Estate here was inaugurated on Saturday at Dibrugarh University by eminent litterateur Professor Nagen Saikia at a solemn function, a release stated.

The building was constructed by the family of Malbhog Baruah in 1889, which was acquired by Dibrugarh University in 1966 to establish its campus. The building was the official residence and the office of the Vice Chancellor of the University and later housed the office of the Registry, the Inspector of Colleges and the Distance Education Centre of the University at various points of time.

Over the years, the building remained abandoned and was in a state of dilapidation. The University authority recently transformed the old building after renovation into a museum, and aptly dedicated in memory of Late Malbhog Baruah.

Malbhog Baruah had put in remarkable vision and hard work in establishing the Rajabheta Tea Estate and a few more estates later in neck-to-neck competition with the British planters. A good number of members of the civil society of Dibrugarh attended the inaugural function.
