DHUBRI, March 17 - To immortalize the legends of the mythological figure of Netai Dhubuni, the Chairman of Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC), Jayanta Malla Baruah on Friday unveiled the statues of Natai Dhubuni, her son Dhananjay and Bewla-Lakhindar on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra.

According to historians, Dhubri town has been named after the mythological figure Netai Dhubuni, who washed the cloths of Gods and Goddesses on the river banks of the historic town, accompanied by her son Dhananjay. The legend of Bewla-Lakhindar is also connected with the mythological figure and river banks of Dhubri. However, it has been a long-pending demand of the people of Dhubri district to recognize these mythological tales connected with the town.

Unveiling the statues built at a cost of Rs 11 lakh at the Netai Dhubuni Ghaat, the DTDC Chairman assured that they have planned to develop tourism in the district by promoting its historic and religious places. �These statues are just the beginning. We have many more plans for Dhubri�, said Baruah. He also added, �Statues have become very important these days because it is a good way of passing the legends on to the next generation. These days the children are so much into video games and mobile phones that they hardly get any time for stories. So, whenever the children will see such a statue, their curiosity will increase about the figure and they will try to know about them�.

Meanwhile, the citizens of Dhubri town have welcomed the step of ATDC and said that the state should have taken this initiative long back.
